Hyundai's Veloster grows up for Detroit, but keeps it weird

2019 Hyundai Veloster: Taking A Closer Look

Power is routed to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission, with no mention of the less-powerful Elantra Sport's seven-speed dual clutch transmission as an option.

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster debuted at the Detroit Auto Show, and will be available at dealerships midway through 2018.

Veloster N was born in Namyang, Hyundai's global R&D center, and was thoroughly honed at its Nurburgring-based testing center in Germany. It's also more tech-infused than ever.

A 2.0L engine producing 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque is standard. Those wanting more juice can opt for the Veloster Turbo, which is powered by a 201 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo that also twists out 195 pound-feet of torque. After more than a year of saying that the automaker's N performance brand wasn't going to arrive in the US anytime soon-being primarily targeted at European markets-Hyundai hit its fans with a thunderous surprise: the sound of growling exhaust system on the brand-new Hyundai Veloster N. As for the Veloster N, that's Hyundai's attempt to out-play VW's Golf GTI. The 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine offers 150kW at 600rpm and 264Nm from 1500-4500rpm; there's an overboost function that bumps torque to 274Nm under hard acceleration.

Suspect in custody after police chase Greyhound bus
According to a passenger who called the police, the suspect was threatening to kill people. "He was in and out of the washroom". He reportedly made threats, referred to having a gun and acted as though he was going to pull one out of his waistband.

Hyundai Motor Co.'s 2019 Veloster is roaring into Detroit with a meaner look. This makes it a nice rival for cars like the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST, and a middle ground rival for the Golf R, Focus RS and Honda Civic Type R. All N models will come with a six-speed manual transmission with four exterior colors including Ultra Black, Chalk White, Racing Red, and N-exclusive Performance Blue. Hyundai says the Veloster Turbo is equipped with Active Sound Design, which Hyundai says will enhance the engine and exhaust note. This system uses wheel-speed sensors and Electronic Stability Control algorithms to correctly brake and focus on the inside front wheel during aggressive cornering, Hyundai reports.

The Veloster N throws in a new, track-centric N mode, which adjusts the suspension among other things, and there's also the N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential.

As for bringing you to a halt, the Veloster N comes with 13-inch rotors up front and 11.8-inch rotors at the rear.

Inside, the regular vehicle has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard on a 7-inch touchscreen, or an 8-inch touchscreen upgrade with HD radio, eight speaker audio with a subwoofer, and smartphone integration. Owners can grab a Qi wireless charge pad, too. N-design cloth-covered sports seats, a sports steering wheel and shift knob, a unique instrument cluster and Performance Blue accents showcase the interior. At first glance, Hyundai flared the wheel arches even more aggressively and attached a more rakish beltline.
