Those looking for a little marquee hatch are running out of options, as Hyundai recently killed the Accent in Canada as well. Only the Elantra hatch and the Ioniq remain.
A new transmission is also added to the performance hatch, an eight-speed wet dual-clutch automatic transmission. Hyundai is hoping the inclusion of an automatic transmission opens up a whole new world of buyers, and the Veloster N was previously only available with a 6-speed manual transmission.
“Veloster N demonstrates Hyundai’s approach to high performance cars. By equipping the Veloster N with N DCT, operators benefit from both performance and convenience, ”said Thomas Schemera, Product Division Manager. “Anyone who wants a fun driving experience will jump at the chance to drive the new Veloster N – an everyday sports car with racing capabilities.”
