Standard Veloster is available too

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Hyundai Veloster N is the first high-performance vehicle that the Korean brand will bring to the U.S. But it won’t become available in American showrooms until the fourth quarter of 2018. However, you can already drive the beefed-up hatchback, alongside the Veloster Turbo model, in Forza Motorsport 7 starting January 16.

Both cars have joined the official roster of drivable vehicles in the game for Xbox and Windows 10 as part of a free downloadable content pack

Both cars have joined the official roster of drivable vehicles in the game for Xbox and Windows 10 as part of a free downloadable content pack. As with all cars in Forza Motorsport 7, once the Veloster N is in your garage, you can customize it with new wheels, powertrain and suspension upgrades, bespoke tunes, and unique paint schemes and racing liveries. Additional Veloster-related in-game features, including Rivals events, will be unveiled in the future.

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Veloster N follows in the footsteps of the i30 N with aerodynamic and design upgrades on the outside and a new engine under the hood. The Hatchback packs a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet and uses a six-speed manual transmission, a fully independent suspension, and a performance braking system. The non-N version gets a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle unit with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet in base guise and the previous 2.0-liter turbo with 201 horses and 195 pound-feet in its Turbo version.
