The Hyundai Veloster N was a surprise attendee at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. A lot of people weren’t expecting to see it but were thankful anyway when they did.
As the second model to get the N performance treatment, the Veloster N is a lot of things. It’s fast, engaging, and a lot of fun to drive. One thing it isn’t, though, is record-breaking. It’s not breaking any lap records at the Nurburgring because it wasn’t developed to do so. That strategy was intentional because, in Hyundai’s eyes, Nurburgring lap records are "a waste of time."
