The 2019 Hyundai Veloster Is Finally A True Hot Hatchback Competitor

Hello, Are You The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N?

In addition to unveiling the standard trims of its all-new 2019 Veloster, Hyundai also gave us the N, which will be the first US-market vehicle to fall under Hyundai's new performance brand. The Veloster maintains its unique three-door, asymmetrical layout with a completely refreshed design. The two-plus-one hatchback's overall profile and proportions are similar to the outgoing model, but modernized. Regardless of pricing, we believe that Hyundai has finally turned the Veloster into what it was always meant to be, a sporty hot hatchback that can back up its looks with insane performance. Available with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, it promises better acceleration than the base engine.

A sporty redesign makes the 2019 Hyundai Veloster more appealing, especially with turbo-oriented upgrades.

"Our new 2019 Veloster represents an even more compelling offering for young and young-at-heart automotive enthusiasts with more expressive design, involving dynamics and cutting-edge infotainment features", said Mike O'Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning at Hyundai Motor America. For the power hungry, the Turbo will come with the direct-injected 1.6-liter Gamma four that delivers 201 hp and 195 lb-ft on 87 octane fuel with an additional seven lb-ft available on overboost. Along with various other factors like the exhaust character and engine response, these can be fiddled with via something which Hyundai calls - try not to cringe - 'N Grin Control System' This offers various driving modes and plenty of customisation, so you could - for instance - turn the engine right up without switching on the auto rev-matching system, should you want to dabble in heel-and-toe heroics.

Throughout its life, Hyundai's Veloster has primarily traded on its funkiness. Hyundai has also introduced the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N, a high-performance version of the Veloster that arrives with 275 horsepower. The diffuser in the rear bumper is also more pronounced. Power is up to 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque over last year's model.

Regime regains ground in Idlib counterattack
The Syrian army, supported by Iran-backed militias and Russian air power, began an offensive in late October in Hama province. A Syrian military source denied this and dismissed rebel talk of a counter attack as propaganda.

Along with a rear-strut-brace, there's an adaptive suspension with different selectable modes, including a track-oriented "N" setting. To keep everything under control the Veloster N has optional oversized 13.6-inch performance rotors on the front axle and 12.4-inch rotors on the rear.

Some of those new features include an available heads-up display, an 8-inch center touchscreen and an available eight-speaker Infinity audio system. Owners can grab a Qi wireless charge pad, too. Inside, N-specific bits include the cloth front seats, the steering wheel, shift knob and instrument cluster.

The letter N, for those who haven't been following, is the moniker Hyundai is applying to its own performance line, directed by former BMW M chief engineer Albert Biermann.
