    Hyundai N To Arrive In U.S. Next Year, Possibly in Veloster Form

      N is coming, but not in the vehicle we first thought

    Hyundai has been busy teasing their N Performance brand for Europe with the upcoming i30 N (Elantra GT to us). But soon, they will begin to do the same for the U.S.

    Speaking with various outlets this week in South Korea, head of N Albert Biermann said the U.S. would get their first taste of an N product next year. For a time, we thought that it would be Elantra GT. But it seems Hyundai has another product in mind. 

    While Hyundai and Biermann aren't saying what it could be, everyone thinks it will be the next-generation Veloster. Evidence for this comes from various spy shots from the past few months that show heavily camouflaged Velosters with various tweaks such as larger brakes and exhausts pushed out to the edges of the bumper.

    We know the i30 N will utilize a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder producing at least 250 horsepower and we would not be shocked if the Veloster N gets this engine as well.

    Stay tuned.

    Always cool to have a product to compete against the Japanese, Europe and America, but this would not be on my list if I could fit and wanted a small auto.

    So they are going to match the output of the now dead Verano turbo?

    In a car with worse reliability, less interior room, lower standards for fit and finish, less athletic chasis tuning, lower resale, decreased visibility, worse interior comfort, shorter refueling range, more difficulty in service and repair, higher parts costs, more expensive dealer service visits, decreased crash test safety, lower consumer reports reliability rankings...but yes, if you don't mind all of those and thirty other short falls...Hyundai will match Buicks power....just not much of anything else.

    Random anecdotal stuff...I have a buddy I worked with a few years ago, he's a young 'un (35)--when I started working w/ him he drove a late '00s Hyundai Sonata...it got totaled in front of the office, he replaced it in '14 w/ a Veloster...caught up w/ him about a month ago, had nothing but trouble w/ it over the last 3 years..recently traded it on...a '17 GMC Acadia (has 2 kids now)..

    There is always a market for marginal quality goods among people who really do not care...

    I would put some of Hyundai and Kia product being much better than some other marginal goods (looking at Nissan, certain Volkswagens..)

    I was thinking in terms of uninspired design more than build quality...but I would never recommend a Kia or Hyundai based on build quality either

    I would damn sure buy a Buick before I would buy a Hyundai, Kia, or Nissan.  My Jetta TDI was flawless for the 56 thousand miles I owned it.

    Methinks I like the idea of a horsepower war among entry level cars.  Veloster will not be by any means whatsoever on my shopping list for my next car though.

    Could be quite fun!

    • I am just going to say this. For all of my various physical issues over the years, one of them is not my immune system. It has been like a tank and has kept me from getting sicker than most folks over the decades (have never had Strep, for example). Having said that, I still got both of my Moderna shots and then a booster six months later. Why? Because I am not just thinking of myself here. I am thinking of the people around me like my GF and her autoimmune issues.   Just saying.
    • I must of missed that part a while back. That is a full "just sit this one out" moment, if you ask me.
    • Not Irrelevant, he even says they might have to declare bankruptcy, that is very relevant to you bringing him into the discussion on Covid. He is distracted from doing the main job of running Tesla. Tesla Shares down 1/3rd this year alone and still dropping. Tesla Truck a no show even in Mule form Semi Trucks in mule form but years late already from delivery Auto line is delaying delivery due to of all things supply chain issues that he says they do not have compared to the Legacy OEMs. Vaccine is the thread here, but when one person throughs out a Narcissist that has problems focusing on the only job he has, running a company as he would rather be a rock or movie star due to his look at me attitude, yes that is the problem with Musk and why his paltry $5 million means little when he talks about solving world hunger? How about doing like the gates foundation spending billions to vaccinate children around the world to avoid having them go through what Humanity has already beaten. Let's also not forget that you yourself are not vaccinated as you have posted so why should it matter that he be praised for talking about covid rather than running the company he is employed to run?
    • We didnt win gold that year. (In 2018) We did win bronze.  Everyone is a winner, right? At least I dont drive a CUV... Anyway,  St Lazare didnt win anything that year because we were the reason they didnt qualify for the medal round.  In 2017, they won gold while we won bronze.  They were the reason why we played for the bronze medal.  In 2019, we beat ourselves and didnt make it to the medal round. They won Gold. In 2020, we could have won Gold but there was no medal tournament. Just games (Covid) and we were the best team in our league.   Last year we fell short in qualifying for the medal round.  Yup, our final game to qualify for a medal to determine if we play for bronze and we had to beat them. We didnt. They beat us thrusting them to the Gold game.  They won gold.  If we beat them that game, we would play each other for the bronze....    
    • xcept we also won a couple of times against them. In 2018 as the last time.  Just to say we dont always lose to them.  That bald dude is me.   My daughter is the 5th girl counting left to right. 3 coaches.  Myself at the right. Head coach to the right of me and the coach at the far right. This year we are two coaches. Myself and another dad.  we both share head coaching. we have a chance to win it all this year, including beating that rascal of a St Lazare team!
