Hyundai wants to make the driver smile when driving the new Veloster N.

After rumors surfaced about the alleged larger 2.5-liter engine for Hyundai’s fancy hatchback, the South Korean brand introduced the improved 2020 Veloster N.

The performance version of the Hyundai Veloster is rumored to not get a more powerful engine, but it does get a new gearbox to increase productivity to make the driver smile, after the Hyundai teaser last week.

We’re talking about the Hyundai N DCT – the all-new 8-speed dual wet clutch gearbox that will debut in the 2020 Veloster N. The working word here is “wet,” so expect the new gearbox to be more suitable for high torque applications.

In fact, the new N DCT Veloster N increased front-wheel drive hatchback torque by seven percent, from 353 Newton meters to 377 Newton meters. The engine remained the same – a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces from 250 to 275 hp. with the Performance package.

According to representatives of Hyundai, the increase in torque comes from the N Grin Shift (NGS) technology, which allows the use of turbocharging and a maximum transmission response within 20 seconds.

The new transmission also comes with N Power Shift (NPS) and N Track Sense Shift (NTS) – both control gear changes depending on the situation. All of these transmission devices are controlled via an 8-inch infotainment system in conjunction with the JBL premium sound system kit.

To match the new drivetrain, the Veloster, developed at the Nurburgring, also comes with an upgrade option to the N Light Sports Bucket Seats. In addition to lighter weight (-2 kilograms), a new trim for the chairs, the model has a highlighted logo on the top of the back for additional aesthetics.

The 2020 Hyundai Veloster N will go on sale in South Korea in April this year, and then other markets will appear.
