Hello, Are You The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N?

Hyundai has been steadily teasing us with preview images for the forthcoming all-new Veloster, scheduled for debut at the Detroit Auto Show this week. But it looks like it’s already leaked out… again.

Korean site TopRider (sent to our attention by tipster GT) appears to not only have a clear – if somewhat low-res – image of the standard Veloster, in red with a black roof, but a shot of the high-performance Veloster N as well.

The letter N, for those who haven’t been following, is the moniker Hyundai is applying to its own performance line, directed by former BMW M chief engineer Albert Biermann. The sub-brand has already yielded the i30 N hot hatch for the European market, but is working on a heated-up version of the Veloster for the North American market as well.

Expect the same 2.0-liter turbo four to make the transition from one to the other, churning out between 246 and 271 horsepower – along with other performance enhancements.

Those amber side-markers in the corners of the headlights tell us these images could portray that US version, but we’ll find out one way or another tomorrow when Hyundai takes the wraps off the new sport hatch at Detroit’s Cobo Center – so watch this space.

    Looks good. I think it might be the regular Turbo, though.
    Edit: nvm just saw it has the N badge on the grille.

    Looking good. Lets hope Hyundai is able to dial in some genuinely good handling dynamics.

      If i30N is anything to go by, the Veloster N should be a cracker too. Kudos to Hyundai

      Only thing I’ve heard is steering is numb.
