Hyundai introduced the 2019 Veloster N at the North American International Auto Show in January and now we’re finally learning how much the model will cost.
Hyundai has revealed the Veloster N will have a base price of $27,785 ($26,900 plus an $885 delivery fee). This means the model will cost $8,400 more than the entry-level Veloster 2.0 and $1,500 more than the Veloster Turbo.
While that’s not exactly pocket change, the Veloster N comes nicely equipped with LED lighting units and 18-inch alloy wheels. The hatch also has a proximity key with a push button ignition, an 8-speaker Infinity audio system and an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Other highlights include air conditioning, alloy pedals and power windows / locks.
Of course, the Veloster N is all about performance and the model doesn’t disappoint as it has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. The car also comes standard with an electronically controlled suspension and a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the front wheels.
Buyers looking for something even more powerful can order the N Performance package for an additional $2,100 for a total of $29,885 ($29,000 plus a $885 delivery fee). It rewards drivers with an upgraded engine that produces 275 hp (205 kW / 278 PS) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque.
Besides featuring more power, the performance package adds a sports exhaust system and larger 19-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. The package also includes an upgraded braking system with discs that measure 13.6 inches (345 mm) front and 12.3 inches (312 mm) rear.
The 2019 Veloster N marks the first time an N model has been sold in the United States and the car will go on sale next month.
