2022 Hyundai Veloster N Redesign, New Model

2022 Hyundai Veloster N Redesign, New Model – The Veloster N is a range-topping model name, packing 275 metric ponies of 2.0-liter displacement and short-throw manual transmissions with six ratios. We all know that a dual-clutch transmission is coming, but until now, the possibility of a 2.5-liter turbo was not ascertained by the higher and peanut counters of Hyundai.

Hyundai sent the Veloster to the 2022 model year without any changes. In other news, the Korean automaker is developing a mid-engine sports car using the Veloster as a starting point.

2022 Hyundai Veloster N Competitions

We’ve even been driving prototype versions, although the production model will be significantly smoother, but will compete with the like of the Chevrolet Corvette, Toyota Supra, and Nissan 400Z rather than duke it out with a hot hatchback alongside the Veloster.

Also marketed under the brand name Smartstream, 2.5 T-GDi developed 304 PS and 422 Nm of torque in the second generation Genesis G80. This luxury sedan subsequently showed off an eight-speed automatic of the torque-converter type, but again, this version of the 2.5 T-GDi was adapted for rear and all-wheel applications instead of FWD.

Hyundai Veloster N Engine

With 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet on deck, the new engine will pit the Veloster N over the Honda Civic Type R. It remains to be seen whether an eight-speed DCT with a wet grip will be offered with a 2.5 T-GDi, and talking about it, upgrading to 2.5 liters seems like the right thing to do to refresh the mid-cycle Veloster N.

We are not interested in the Veloster unless it is equipped with a more powerful engine and optimized for driving pleasure. That puts turbo R-Spec right in front of our eyes. It is the most affordable model with an upgraded 201-hp turbocharged engine.

It also has a short-throw shifter, a sport-tuned chassis, and is only equipped with a manual transmission. Plus, the R-Spec is the only version that wears wider, sticky performance tires, which provide maximum braking and an angled grip. Apart from some accessories, this particular model offers no other options.

According to EPA estimates, the fuel economy for the Veloster hatchback is equipped with the top of the base engine at 27/34 mpg city/highway. With an optional turbocharged engine, gas mileage peaks at 28/34 mpg. That’s a respectable number, but some rival compact cars offer much better fuel efficiency.

For example, the Kia Forte gets up to 29/40 mpg, and the Honda Civic hatchback gets up to 31/40 mpg. During our time with the Veloster Turbo Ultimate DCT, we observed a 38 mpg mileage on our 200-mile highway test route.

Veloster cabin seats are four and feature solid craftsmanship. The materials used are of decent quality, but you will find some hard plastic. The cabin aesthetic is quite pleasant, but there are other options in this class that provide more luxurious interior design.

Unlike the standard two-door hatchback, the Veloster is built with one long door on the driver’s side and two shorter doors on the passenger side. The addition of a third passenger side door makes it easy for those in the back seat to get in and out of the vehicle.

With a back seat in place, the Veloster provides 20 cubic feet of cargo space. It expands to 45 cubic feet with the back seat lowered. The numbers are competitive enough for a small hatchback.

The basic model Veloster is equipped with a six-speaker sound system and an infotainment system with a 7.0-inch display. Bluetooth connectivity is standard, facilitating hands-free phone calls.

2022 Hyundai Veloster N Features

All models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless device integration. The list of optional technology features includes wireless device chargers, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation, and an improved sound system.

i30 – alias. The Elantra GT in the United States – has been facelifted but Hyundai has made no mention of what lurks under the hood of the i30 N. Known as Project C, the highest-performing version of the pre-facelift i30 N is lighter and more akin to carving out angles than south Korea’s hot hatchback stock specifications.
