When the Hyundai launched its N version for some of the models, it couldn't be left aside the Veloster, the only hatchback on the market with 3+1 doors: two on the curbside and one for the driver.

Hyundai Veloster N was shown to the public in 2018 at the North American International Auto Show as a 2019 model. It kept the same 3+1 door concept that made it unique. But then, it added what the hot-hatch look it needs: a proper engine.

When compared with the other Veloster versions, the N had something more to tell. The big, piano-black grille had the little "N" red badge on it. There were specific air-ducts to cool the brakes were part of the image. From the side, the specific 18" light-alloy-wheels were fitted with 225/40R18 tires and an option for a 19" set with 235/35R19. On top of the tailgate, there was a small wing installed on top of a roof spoiler. The officials said that both works in creating some downforce.

Inside the cabin, the three-door concept was good to take passengers in the rear. But the main features were for the driver. It included a shift-light indicator on the dashboard, to warn and prepare when to up-shift. For the downshift, a rev-match system was offered. The Infinity sound system that equips the Veloster N was part of the infotainment unit with an 8" touch-screen display.

For the technical department, the Veloster N had few options on top of its 275 hp engine. While the transmission was a 6-speed manual only, it was available with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, to handle the power better.
