When the Hyundai Veloster took the 2018 model year off, we honestly weren’t sure if the model would make a comeback at all. It had admittedly been underperforming and wasn’t quite as popular as Hyundai might’ve expected or wanted. What we certainly didn’t expect was for it to not only return, but to comeback in force, with North America’s first N Division model… the first-ever 2019 Hyundai Veloster N in Cocoa FL.
This high-performance hot hatch builds upon the things that did work with the old Veloster and took inspiration from Hyundai’s experiences with the World Rally Championship and Touring Car Racing series. The result was one of the quickest and hottest vehicles on the entire lineup. We cannot wait to see what’s next for the N Division, nor to see how popular this new Veloster model becomes.
The Veloster N is available in two different trim levels, the standard package or the performance package – which takes the high-performance nature of the Veloster N up an even further notch. Powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Veloster N is capable of generating either 250 horsepower or 275 horsepower depending on which package you choose, respectively. In order to get the most horsepower, the Veloster N requires premium unleaded gasoline. Other performance features include things like the standard front-wheel drive system, 6-speed manual transmission with rev-matching, Torque Vectoring Control, Drive Mode Select and more, as well as available things like the Variable Exhaust Valve System and N Corner Carving Differential.
Despite basically being a racecar for the everyday road, there are plenty of great features that you’d find in other everyday drivers. These features include things like a 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, 60-40 split-folding rear seats, an 8” display audio screen with SiriusXM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and complimentary Blue Link Connected Car and Remote Packages, a standard Infinity Premium Audio System that features 8 speakers, a subwoofer and an external amp, Proximity Key and so much more.
