Hyundai has made the official introduction of its 2019 Hyundai Veloster N for the North American market. It will be the first N performance variant to be made available in our market. Production of the model is starting this month at the company’s plant in Ulsan, South Korea, and the first units should make their way to Canadian dealers towards the end of 2018. We should know more pricing as we get closer to launch. Meantime check out our photo gallery of the 2019 Veloster N!
Hyundai is projecting to import 200 units of the 2019 Veloster N to Canada. The vehicles can be pre-ordered online at Hyundai Canada’s website. Customers will then be contacted by their local dealer to complete the order, which requires a fully refundable deposit of $1,000.
Like the regular version of the 2019 Veloster, the high-performance version is built on an all-new architecture developed by Hyundai. The manufacturer chose the legendary Nürburgring circuit in Germany to make the official presentation, to demonstrate the high-end performance capabilities and durability of the Veloster N.
“The Veloster N is another example of Hyundai Motor’s capabilities, creating an exciting sports car with thrilling dynamics combined with a compelling affordability equation as key to the N high-performance concept.”
- Albert Biermann, president and head of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group
The Veloster N comes sporting a range of exterior, interior and mechanical elements to distinguish it from other trims, including the Veloster Turbo model.
The Veloster N gets an exclusive N-design front fascia and grille with dedicated front air ducts for enhanced brake cooling. LED headlamps are also included.
In profile, exclusive elements include N-design rocker side sills and lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke star design. The standard tires are ultra-high performance, exclusive-compound 235/35R19 Pirelli P-Zero summer tires.
The rear of the Veloster N sports a larger N-design rear spoiler, rear fascia design with integrated diffuser, and performance-diameter, high-flow dual exhaust. The tail lamps are also LED.
