Judging by the official video, Hyundai Veloster N 2020 will receive a “robot” DCTApril 14, 2020
The press service of the South Korean brand has published a video showing a high-performance hatchback Veloster N 2020 model year with a DCT gearbox. The start date of sales is unknown.
Hyundai has just posted a teaser video with the Veloster N 2020 model year high-performance hatchback. But is Veloster N 2020 already fully available for order? Go to the Hyundai website right now, and yes, you can configure your own version of the “hot” hatchback with additional components such as Performance equipment and a range of accessories such as floor mats, etc. One option you cannot choose is the DCT dual-clutch gearbox, because it is not currently offered.
It is in this drivetrain that the whole point of this new teaser video is. The clip itself actually does not give much, but the Hyundai N video explicitly mentions the DCT box via a hashtag.
The video also shows how the “hot” Veloster handles some steep drifts that the DCT doesn’t really help with the front-wheel drive car. Nevertheless, this will help speed up the transmission, and in fact, if you look very closely at the beginning of the video, you will see how the driver grabs the gearshift lever. So yes, it looks like the Veloster N with the DCT robotic transmission is shown in the video.
In 2019, at the Nurburgring, test prototypes of a high-performance hatchback were discovered, showing cars with flashing taillights that flash quickly and turn off before the car moves forward. This is a clear sign of an automatic transmission, which is translated into manual mode.
There is still no mention of the details related to DCT (gear ratios, etc.), nor about when this option will be offered for a “hot” hatchback. However, Hyundai specifically refers the new DCT specifically to the Veloster N 2020 model year. So we can expect that in the near future all the necessary information will appear on the new gearbox.
