Bought a garage partner in the form of a 2019 Accent Limited for the daily driver. it Accentuates the Veloster N for FUN!!:grin:

When I went to pick up my N there was a white Elantra GT N-Line in the showroom.

Man that is a sharp looking car! Love the red seat belts, stitching and accents. Ton's of space inside and really nice body lines. If that had the punch that the Veloster N did I would have opted for it instead for sure. Hyundai, why you know i30N/Elantra GT N in North America?!

Kona N next slated for the US in 2020. Probably in the AWD Trim also.

Well I bought it... does that count?

and seeing as it is winter here and I am not putting winter tyres on her I am having it flat-bedded over to to a shop for a full body wrap.

Apart from protecting the paint I think that British Racing Green will look very good on her.

Pictures to follow when finished

I bought one!

I traded in my '16 Veloster Turbo CVT for the N with 275hp performance package today. What a difference from the old one, but I am going to miss some options ... no Nav, no heated seats, no new HUD or safety stuff that's on the '19 Turbo ... But on the plus side, I am smiling while driving a little more HAHA The suspension is like night and day! The ECON mode is great to drive along pothole infested highways with nary a jolt. I haven't had a manual trans in a long time, but this is pretty nice. I had a 2003 Boxster S and it's as good as that was. The only real minus was that it was nearly list price - and I'm sure to take a bit hit as soon as the 8 speed CVT comes out in the fall.

No CVT! A CVT is a (Constant Velocity Trans) and they're junk and Honda uses them. I thing you mean DCT. There's no hard evidence there will be a DCT available. This has already been hashed out several time. Do a search and you'll see the results. Hyundai has said nothing unofficially or officially. Most if not all the information is speculation and rumors, nothing concrete.

Yes I meant DCT of course. And someone from the dealership did tell me that there is an 8 speed DCT in testing right now and will debut in the fall.

That's just rumor and speculation. There is no announcement or media with actual proof Hyundai is actually producing one for the Veloster N are. The Kona N will have an uprated DCT for the Theta 2.0T 250 hp model. But there is nothing but speculation and rumor as to the Veloster N getting a DCT anytime soon. Even the i30N in overseas is a manual. Hyundai doesn't have a robust enough unit to handle the horsepower output.

I have literally seen an interview with Albert Bierman stating they are developing a DCT version with intent to release for the 2020 model year. He was not specific as to what regional market though.

I would call the chief design engineer saying it pretty good evidence. I will have a look when I get home and find the interview.

Albert Bierman said the VN will be available with a DCT in a year or two.
This was at a press launch conference. I think the one in California.
I would say he is a pretty reliable source.

I might, as long as Hyundai Corporate approves. Hasn't happened, as the N Division doesn't have a dedicated engine or powertrain division. It's easy to prove just post the link/s.

Where are the official Hyundai links, saying it's happening?

https://www.gtplanet.net/this-aint-no-one-trick-pony-2019-hyundai-veloster-n-review/ "While the lesser models offer a DCT, the manual is currently the only option on the N. Hyundai says a DCT is coming, but not to expect it for a few years." . A few years is two or more. We'll see, Hyundai has changed their mind on specifications time and time again.

Where, here is the entire interview? Nothing was said about the DCT.

Not here either!
Here at 3:04 but nothing from Bierman directly. Again, speculation from Tom Voelk

If this is the proof you offer, then it still remains to be seen. In the auto world two year is a considerable length of time and things do change over the years. Allot has to do with how the N will be accepted, in it's largest market, the US. Right now, the DCT used in the Veloster R-Spec and Turbo, isn't near robust enough to handle the power output of the N standard or PP. It will require a joint effort from Hyundais Engine/Powertrain Divisions and the N division, to produce one that can work with the Limited Slip differential and handle the current horsepower output.

The Kona N which is due out in 2020, will have a DCT, but is likely to share it with the i30N and only the standard version as the PP will remain manual. Some, are predicting it will be a wet clutch assembly, not a dry clutch pack that is now offered in the Veloster and Kona. The Kona N will be capped at the 2.0T Theta 250 hp engine and will not have the Limited Slop Differential. More likely AWD. However, this is also speculation and remains to be seen. No official word, as of now from Hyundai or Hyundai N Division.

Where are you getting your information on the Kona N?

They have already confirmed the DCT in the i30N for a late 2019 arrival. It is not the same or a rework of the one previously used in the veloster as the new one is an 8 speed not a 7 speed. So it's all new, already been in development and already planned to be fitted to the exact same drivetrain that the VN has 🤔. Time will tell I guess.

Its a Continuously Variable Transmission, its not a Constant Velocity Transmission. Its not a glorified PWM (Pulse Width Modulator). https://auto.howstuffworks.com/cvt.htm

https://www.kelownanissan.com/2014/08/18/cvt-constant-velocity-transmission/ . Beg your pardon, it can be called either:grin:

Lets just say a very reliable source that shall remain unknown for specific reasons.:wink:

The i30N is specifically made for the oversea market and not available in the US. However, the Elantra 5 door is the US version and is now available in Sport/GT trim, with both a 1.6T Gamma and 2.0 Theta engines. We'll just have to wait patiently for and improved model for the US.:wink:


@Velocitas_Eradico; Oh, hi David Joseph Torello . I see your lurking around this forum, without even owning a Veloster. You're treading thin ice bud. Your other "name," has been banned from the other forum and nearly at the other one also. They're watching you quite carefully. They have enough information as of now, to ban your IP address/s permanently. You might want to re-think being here.:wink:

Blessings and Peace
