Hyundai have made a new version of their quirky asymmetrical coupe-hatchback Veloster, now with a hot 275 hp N version available. That 2.0L engine comes straight from the impressive i30 N and is coupled with an e-limited slip differential with should help harness the power of the turbocharged 4 cylinder. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres come standard, as well as bigger performance brakes.
The Veloster has always been an odd car with its single door on the driver’s side, and two doors on the passenger side. It has been a car that was trying to fill the coupe market and the hotly contested hatchback market at the same time. To date the Veloster has struggled to gain popularity amongst buyers, now Hyundai hopes this second generation will spark a new interest.
"Veloster N takes Hyundai to a new level of purchase consideration for true driving enthusiasts in the U.S. market," said Albert Biermann, president and head of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group. "The Veloster N is another example of Hyundai Motor's capabilities, creating an exciting sports car with thrilling dynamics combined with a compelling affordability equation as key to the N high-performance concept."
