There is no denying that the VN is a good value for the money, but all that changes if you are considering a lease. Thanks to some new info online, the first lease on the Veloster N starts at $429 for 36 months and that's with $2,299 due at signing. All things factored in the essential cost will be just shy of $500/month which is ridiculous imo for a 250hp Hyundai. https://jalopnik.com/dont-bother-leasing-the-hyundai-veloster-n-1831038250
It should be noted that sport compacts and hot hatchbacks are historically cars that don’t have the best lease programs, but leasing a 250 horsepower Hyundai for almost $500 per month is especially insane.
There are three main reasons for this bonkers high lease price. First, there are no major rebates or discounts on the Veloster N, which isn’t terribly surprising since it just hit the market. Second, the money factor (which is essentially an interest rate) on this lease is 0.00226 which translates to an APR of about 5.4 percent.
Finally, the Veloster N is not predicted to hold its value very well, with its residual at 52 percent. All of these things combine into a perfect storm of a very expensive lease.
