Hyundai Launches N Performance Line With New Veloster N
Hyundai is officially taking on the world of high-performance cars with the new Veloster N. The slick, sporty hatchback, which has been tuned for a more spirited driving experience, is the first vehicle to come out of the brand’s new N performance line. The N badge will feature on performance cars built for a budget with an “under $30,000” price tag.
The Hyundai Veloster N has been tuned for more power, better steering and handling, and smoother shifting, with the team behind the N name tuning up everything from the Veloster’s brakes and suspension to its engine. The turbo-four under the hood has even been tweaked to churn out up to 275 horsepower. The suspension was even modified by former BMW engineers to give it that German precision, and the team at the Nurburgring had a go at tuning it, too.
Drivers will find that the Veloster N — depending on the options chosen — will be available for between $27,000 to $30,000, offering a budget-friendly alternative to more expensive performance vehicles.
While the new Veloster N is the first vehicle to get the N treatment, Hyundai is keeping future models under wraps for now. However, experts speculate an N-badged crossover could be on the way to the brand’s performance car lineup, too.
