The official start of sales of the new Hyundai Veloster N should take place in April, but today we had photos of the production model from South Korea at our disposal.

The new Veloster N will succeed the recently discontinued generation of the model in South Korea. The novelty will be equipped with a DCT robotic 8-speed transmission, which, according to the automaker, will increase sales of the model.

Veloster N is a “charged” modification of the Veloster (JS) model, released in June 2018. The novelty is intended both for fast driving on public roads, and for racing tracks.

The N-Performance Veloster delivers a maximum output of 250 hp. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine. In the updated version, the engineers finalized the engine, increasing its output to 275 hp. The car is also equipped with 19-inch wheels, shod with Pirelli P ZERO tires, an N-shaped differential (eLSD), an active variable exhaust system and increased brakes.

The dual-clutch gearbox received by the updated Veloster N is a wet 8-speed DCT, which is different from the Hyundai Motor’s dry 7-speed DCT transmission. It is designed for powerful engines, and is characterized by 30% faster response and increased efficiency. This also reduces power loss by minimizing friction and oil loss in hydraulic systems. The energy transfer efficiency is 93.8%. The wet clutch system has a relatively complex structure and high manufacturing cost, but has a high allowable torque to handle high power engines such as the SmartStream G2.5 T-GDi or SmartStream D2.2.
