If you were looking for fun straight line power, the Veloster N might not be any better than the Civic Type R. However there is hope for brands like SFR to come around like they have with Hyundai products before this. What increases of power would you guys want?
Despite a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbo that cranks 275 hp with the Performance Pack – a 250-hp version will be standard – the Veloster N is never exceedingly quick or fast, but it does tap into usable, fun performance. The exclusive transmission is a six-speed manual, another nod to enthusiasts, though an "eight-speed" CVT is in the works down the line. Hyundai says the six-speed model can hit 62 mph in 6.1 seconds using the Veloster N’s launch control feature – yep, it’s got one – and we can assume 5.9 or 6.0 seconds to 60 as a fair estimate on the 19-inch P-Zeros, though it may vary slightly on the standard 18-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
