Three doors, eight speeds and five modes, those are the numbers that all add up to deliver the new sleek, sporty and attractive new Hyundai 2022 Veloster N M/T. Its innovative three-door styling includes a 2-stage rear spoiler and large-bore dual exhaust outlets that are tucked into the rear air diffuser. Beneath all the style is substance: A high-strength steel core reinforced to create a rigid—yet remarkably lightweight structure.
When the throttle is pressed, Veloster N goes into a stunning and exciting quickness mode that provides a temporary boost in peak torque and improved transmission response for 20 seconds. Drivers can choose between five drive modes. In the N Custom mode, you can select Normal, Sport or Sports+ settings for individual high-performance components to match your driving preferences and road conditions. A twin-outlet variable exhaust valve system lets your select exhaust sounds ranging from normal to powerful pops, snaps and snarls.
Fine-tune those performance thrills with customizable drive modes. Select from Normal, Sport or Sport+ modes to calibrate each of the seven chassis and powertrain settings. Or just max-out on everything and press the dedicated N-mode button on the steering wheel. The nimble chassis was built with the philosophy that there’s nothing more satisfying than devouring the toughest hairpin turns and snaking roads our national highway system has to offer. There’s also an electronically controlled limited-slip N Corner Carving Differential with Torque Vectoring Control. The features intelligently varies the torque distributed to each drive wheel, powering the front wheel with the most grip. As a result, there’s an increase in maximum cornering speed with reduced wheel slip.
Take a look inside to find a floating 8” touchscreen with a navigation system. It lets you chart your course using voice commands, a split-screen display, junction view lane guidance and subscription-free traffic data, using HD Radio. Automatic temperature control is standard to help create the perfect cockpit climate. And for everyone’s comfort, Veloster N’s rear seats are roomy enough for adults. And with its wide-opening hatch and 60/40 split fold-flat rear seats, drivers will enjoy the cargo-swallowing versatility of a compact sport utility vehicle. These seats give you stability, support and comfort. Slide into a driver seat that offers integrated headrests, illuminated N badging, lumbar support and reinforced side bolsters. The firm support of deep seat bolsters placed within the N Light Sport Bucket holds driver and passengers in place for enjoyable rides in the city or on the highway.
