Veloster N brings Hyundai's performance brand to the US

This is but the first step in a future performance assault on the US market, and we welcome our new Korean overlords with open arms.

In addition to unveiling the standard trims of its all-new 2019 Veloster, Hyundai also gave us the N, which will be the first US-market car to fall under Hyundai's new performance brand.

This will be the first in what I hope will be several new performance-oriented Hyundais to grace our shores.

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter, direct-injected, turbocharged I4.

It puts out up to 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, all of which is routed to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

The transmission will match revs for you, if you're not that good at heel-toe downshifts.

Its sport exhaust will also crackle and burp during spirited driving and the aforementioned downshifts.

Outside, there are exclusive front and rear bumpers, a new grille with actual functional brake ducts, a larger rear spoiler and a dual-tip exhaust.

There's a multi-mode suspension with a track-specific N mode, an available limited-slip differential and a drive mode that you can customize to meet your personal needs.
