NURBURGRING, Germany, Jul 20, 2018
– Hyundai currently introduced a high-performance Veloster N indication for a U.S. marketplace to an disdainful tellurian media organisation during a German Nurburgring. Hyundai introduced Veloster N to media as a initial of a U.S. N models during a 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Veloster N represents Hyundai’s tip opening automobile ever for a U.S. market. For this reason, it chose a world’s authorized contrast crucible for energetic opening and durability, a famed crests and bends of a Nordschleife, for a initial N media drive. World famous iconic racer Jackie Stewart infamously dubbed it “The Green Hell” for a severe 23 kilometers of some-more than 160 apexes. Hyundai’s initial U.S. marketplace N indication leverages a outstanding, new-for-2019 Veloster platform, showcasing an even aloft turn of opening appealing to a many perceptive of automotive enthusiasts.

Hyundai’s high opening N code was grown to make a driver’s heart kick faster whenever they’re behind a wheel. Instead of focusing on undisguised opening numbers, Hyundai chose to stress a N driver’s heartbeats per notation (BPM), rather than revs per notation (RPM). With fun-to-drive impression as a tip priority, Veloster N has been grown to broach stirring cornering ability joined with bland sports automobile drivability and competition lane capability.

Veloster N was innate in Namyang, Hyundai’s tellurian RD center, and was entirely honed during a Nurburgring-based contrast core in Germany. The Veloster N starts prolongation in Sep 2018 in Ulsan, Korea, with U.S. marketplace accessibility in a fourth entertain of 2018.

“Veloster N takes Hyundai to a new turn of squeeze care for loyal pushing enthusiasts in a U.S. market,” pronounced Albert Biermann, boss and conduct of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group. “The Veloster N is another instance of Hyundai Motor’s capabilities, creating an sparkling sports automobile with stirring dynamics total with a constrained affordability equation as pivotal to a N high-performance concept.”

The Veloster N offers a extensive grade of exterior, interior and automatic split even over a Veloster Turbo and R-Spec models.


From a outside, Veloster N provides an disdainful N-design front fascia and grille with dedicated front atmosphere ducts for extended stop cooling. LED headlamps supplement a tech-focused pattern fact to a front physiognomy as well.

In profile, disdainful N-design rocker side sills and accessible lightweight 19-inch amalgamate wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke star pattern clearly compute a N indication from other Veloster models. Tires are of a ultra-high opening category, with customary 225/40R18 Michelin Pilot SuperSport summer tires for a 18-inch circle pattern and exclusive-compound 235/35R19 Pirelli P-Zero summer tires for a accessible 19-inch amalgamate wheel.

The back of a Veloster N sports a incomparable N-design back spoiler, back fascia pattern with integrated diffuser, and performance-diameter, high-flow twin exhaust. LED tail lamps serve intensify a back perspective lighting signature with a tech-oriented ambience.


On a inside, Veloster N offers disdainful N-design front cloth competition seats with performance-focused bolstering, N-design steering wheel, change knob, N-logo doorway sill plates, and N-design electroluminescent instrument cluster. Interior sum are accented by an N opening blue accent theme. As engine speed approaches redline, a N-design core cluster displays a on-going consecutive change indicator, alerting a motorist of an imminent change indicate for limit acceleration. N-brand lead doorway sill damage plates hail a motorist as they proceed a motorist seat.


Mechanically, Veloster N offers a incomparable 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged powerplant over a Veloster Turbo. The engine boasts adult to an accessible 275 horsepower during 6,000 rpm (estimated) and adult to 260 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,450-4,700 rpm (estimated) for responsive, stirring opening during any RPM range. The turbo complement intercooler is removed from a condenser and radiator for even some-more fit cooling of a intake charge. The complement also advantages from a two-stage initiation complement for limit outlay during all rpm ranges. The engine application ratio is 9.5:1, high for a turbocharged engine. The high opening engine is corroborated adult by a close-ratio, short-throw six-speed primer delivery with downshift rev-matching capability. The delivery uses carbon-coated synchro rings and rigging element bolster for smoother operation and reduce altogether change force joined with a certain rendezvous feel. The Veloster N purchase also utilizes a double-layer confronting purchase front pattern for increasing detonate strength and torque capability. In addition, a powertrain sports a multi-mode, high-flow active competition empty complement with a non-static empty actuator. In N mode, this complement yields an refreshing engine over-run empty burst during spirited-driving upshifts and rev-matched downshifts. This is achieved, in part, around slow-down of ignition timing privately during stifle tip-out during sporty driving. This modernized empty complement is serve protracted with an Electronic Sound Generator that enhances a healthy powertrain sound for an even sportier pushing inflection between a engine and a driver.



Generous torque from a turbocharged powertrain is uniformly and well driven to a tarmac by an N Power Sense Axle design. Veloster N’s Power Sense Axle geometry facilities a zero-scrub radius for some-more accurate steering, quicker response, and a approach on-center feel, with increasing steering linearity. The geometry is serve optimized for linear torque build adult and corner-exit precision. Roll angle is also decreased due to a shorter roll-moment arm, ensuing in extended grip. The motor-driven energy steering complement is rack-mounted and cumulative during 3 locations for reduced flex and some-more approach handling, generally during high-performance driving. For even larger physique acerbity and cessation pointing underneath high energetic cornering loads, a specifically designed, unimportant back strut prop reinforces a back multi-link cessation ascent points.

Unique cessation tuning is subsequent from a multi-mode electronically-controlled cessation with a track-focused N mode available. The cessation uses a load-transfer control complement that reduces dive during braking, enhances hurl control during cornering and reduces back cessation application underneath tough acceleration.

Outstanding cornering is serve achieved around an accessible electronically-controlled torque-vectoring N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential. The N Corner Carving Differential improves launch performance, reduces acceleration trip understeer and increases limit cornering speed around accurate torque-vectoring.

Veloster N offers a far-reaching operation of motorist tuning welfare around a N Grin Control System expostulate mode preference system. Modes embody Normal, Sport, N, Eco and N Custom, differentiating engine stifle response, engine speed rev-matching, empty note, active differential tuning, cessation damping rates, steering feel and yaw-control characteristics. N Custom mode allows extensive pushing impression preferences around singly customizable settings for any tunable pushing attribute.


Veloster N accessible braking offers oversized 13.6-inch opening rotors on a front spindle and 12.4-inch rotors on a rear, for confident, heat-dissipating braking opening joined with a organisation pedal feel. Standard Veloster N stop rotors are 13.0 inches in a front and 11.8 inches in a rear.


Veloster N models are accessible in 4 extraneous colors for a U.S. market: Ultra Black, Chalk White, Racing Red, and N-exclusive Performance Blue, desirous by Hyundai Motorsport. Interior combinations are black with singular frame accent colors tailored to a extraneous combination.
