Foreign journalists captured a test prototype of the “charged” South Korean hatchback Hyundai Veloster N. Earlier this year, it was already reported that this car will be offered with a dual-clutch DCT robot.

Hyundai Veloster is a car with fairly good dynamic performance, but its high-performance version with the N label is a separate topic for conversation. Veloster N comes with a 6-speed manual transmission and additional options from Performance, which provides even more engine power. Foreign journalists were able to capture the prototype of the latter at the Nürburgring race track.

But not everyone likes to shift gears themselves, or at least we think so. Apparently, Hyundai engineers also think so – the “charged” Veloster N already this year will be offered with a “robotic” dual-clutch transmission.

It is reported that the long-awaited South Korean novelty is now passing its final tests before the debut. Earlier this month, we saw a “spy” video that captures the process of unloading a Veloster N prototype from a truck. Now we have a chance to see how a high-performance hatchback rides around the Nurburgring.

Judging by the gearshift sound, it can be concluded that the “robotized” DCT transmission instead of the “mechanics” is installed in the captured cars. What made us believe it was the fact that the tail light went out before one of the test mules began to move forward – this is a feature that is typical for such gearboxes.
