The Veloster N will be using a larger 2.0l turbocharged engine with direct injection. This powerplant will produce 275hp and 260lb-ft of torque. This engine is backed by a close ratio, short throw six speed manual that has rev matching.
You need to consider the fact that when the first generation Golf R launched it only had 240hp. This is an excellent starting point for Hyundai and I'm sure they will continue to up the base performance of this model with future revisions.
