Hyundai finally jumped into the hot hatch game (the first gen Veloster Turbo was lukewarm) with the long awaited Veloster N. Here’s the price breakdown.
We all know that Hyundai packs in the value. If I listed all the standard features this thing comes with, this would be longer than it needs to be. But the main standout features it comes with are:
- 2.0 turbocharged 250 horse I4
- 18” wheels
- 6 speed manual with rev matching
- Electronically controlled suspension
- LED projector headlights
- Large bore exhaust
There are 4 exterior color choices: Chalk White, Performance Blue, Racing Red, Phantom Black. One interior color choice is available as well. Black of course. All exterior colors, save for Racing Red, come with the lower front and sides of the car trimmed in red.. All colors are no cost options of course. I do wish red was interior color option as well.
Again, Hyundai packs in the value, and there is only one option package. Its a $2,100 Performance Package. It consists of:
- N Corner Carving Differential with LSD
- Variable exhaust valve system
- 19” wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires
- A power bump to 275 horses
- 13.5” front and 12.3” rear ventilated brakes.
There are only 3 accessories as well: wheel locks, a cargo tray and rear bumper applique. I added none of these.
All in, a Veloster N will set you back just under $30 grand. $29,885. At this price, it outpowers the GTi both with and with and without the Performance Package and actually closes in on the WRX power wise. This thing should be a performance steal.
