Continuing the theme of modern hot hatches that pack a ton of performance for the price, we recently had a go in a 2020 Hyundai Veloster N, about one year after we initially gave it a thorough review.
If there’s one quick, simple way to describe driving the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N, it’s that this powerful little hot hatch would be an absolute blast through any N-shaped section of track.

A few years ago, we put together a comparison pitting four of our favorite hot hatches against one another. Now, in 2012, we have a new generation of fast, turbocharged hatchbacks that deserve a close look. One brand, the winner from the last test—Mini—is represented here again, this time in the Mini Cooper S Coupe. Also in the race is the new Fiat 500 Abarth, which has garnered a lot of attention from the media and the public. Finally, we threw in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, which we think is both an interesting and exciting candidate, even if it hasn’t had much time to make a name for itself.
My wife, Catheryn, and I recently spent the week in Arizona visiting some family. Our car for the week: a Vitamin C (read: orange—and it got a lot of looks from passersby) Hyundai Veloster. I was happy to finally get a chance to spend some time with the car, as I had missed out on any decent driving when we had it at our Michigan office. When I picked up the vehicle, I was instantly impressed.
According to Hyundai’s twitter feed, we’ll be getting the souped-up Veloster that we’ve always wanted. Yes, there will be a turbocharged Veloster, and we’ll be seeing it first hand at the 2011 North American International Auto Show. Giving additional credence to this statement are three important initials at the end of the tweet–J, F, and K. That’s the tag of Hyundai’s CEO, John Krafcik
Hyundai can do popular styling—this we know. If we’re judging by word on the street, the response of our readership, and our own personal tastes, we can say with some level of confidence that recent Hyundai newbies like the Sonata and Elantra are widely viewed as attractive cars. Even the slightly less well received Genesis Sedan was only really faulted for being anonymous, which is hardly the kiss of death for sales among conservative buyers.
At the Chicago Auto Show, Hyundai announced that Rhys Millen has created a 500-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Hyundai Veloster rally car to compete in the U.S. Rallycross Championship series and the Summer X Games.
We here at Winding Road are very much looking forward to the Detroit Auto Show which kicks off this Monday. Check back here early and often as we update you about the cars and concepts as they debut from Cobo Hall.
Until then, have a look at our list of the ten cars we are excited to see at the show.
Our spy photographer just sent over another picture of the Hyundai Veloster that may prove, as he suspected, that it will have a rear-hinged door for easier access to the rear seat.
Our spy photographer just sent us these images of the Hyundai Veloster in winter testing. With a directed-injected 1.6-liter four giving 140 horsepower to the front wheels, a more powerful version could follow, possibly with a dual-clutch transmission.
We’re out in Beverly Hills, California, for our first drive of the 2010 Hyundai Tucson (stay tuned for our full review), but during this morning’s press conference, Hyundai’s CEO, John Krafcik, detailed some information about upcoming product plans for the 2010 and 2011 calendar years.
