2021 Hyundai Veloster N Specifications

By | December 26, 2020

Hyundai breathed new life into the hot hatch segment a couple of years back with the Veloster N. Despite only coming with 260 horsepower, the car proved to be a polished track machine capable of hanging with much more expensive metal. Its pricing started at $34,745

For 2021, the Veloster N will have a new transmission option in the form of an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. The unique Veloster body style with three doors, and previously manually-only setup makes it a unique product.


The 2021 Veloster also benefits from minor improvements to its cabin. In particular, a pair of lightweight front passenger and driver seats reduce the weight by 4.4 pounds from the previous seats, and provide additional bolstering and trick backrest-mounted illuminated N logos.

Plus, the N’s 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment setup adds in-dash navigation system to its fold, while the auto-equipped model swaps the stick-shift Veloster N clutch pedal for a pair of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a stubby console-mounted gearshift lever.


The Veloster N’s ​​turbocharged 2.0-liter in-line quad also produces 260 pound-feet of torque with peak speeds between 1,450 and 4,700 rpm. With the DCT, Hyundai says, the Veloster N will hit 60 mph in 5.6 seconds, a couple tenths faster than the manual, and it feels even faster.

Hyundai developed the Veloster N with manual or fully automatic and eight-speed modes to improve acceleration and efficiency. The Veloster N is equipped with an electronic actuator that operates a double clutch and offers driving comfort, fuel efficiency and driving pleasure. Unlike dry dual clutch transmissions, the Wet Veloster N uses oil to greatly improve lubrication and cooling performance as required for higher torque applications.
