If you’ve been following our blog for any length of time, you’ve probably begun to realize that we’re pretty big fans of awards. Who isn’t, really? Well, the Hyundai Palisade isn’t the only vehicle winning awards, as the 2020 Hyundai Veloster N was recently named Most Fun-to-Drive Car of the Year by prestigious publication Cars.com! We’re absolutely stoked about this award as the Veloster lineup doesn’t often get the attention it deserves, and this should open a lot of eyes to just how excellent an option it truly is.

How did the 2020 Veloster N win the award?
This is an annual award handed out by Cars.com, which is arguably one of the most renowned and trusted automotive resources on the internet. Rather than looking at many of the normal aspects of a vehicle that most other awards focus on, those choosing the winner of this award is simply looking at how fun a vehicle is to drive, whether on the track or off of it, maybe even off the road completely.
To give you an idea, the Hyundai Veloster N won over some pretty stiff competition, including the iconic Ford Mustang and Jeep Wrangler. In choosing the winner, editors focused more on how driving the vehicle made its driver feel rather than simply focusing on performance stats. Heartbeats per minute over revs per minute, in other words. The Veloster N’s 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain certainly helps deliver an experience on the road worthy of such an award, thanks to its 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
