Model Preview

Continuing from last year, the 2023 Veloster will only be available in the performance N trim. Only ten years after it was first made to replace the Tiburon, the Veloster has been reduced to just the best selling model while the rest of the lineup has been discontinued in order to make way for an expanded SUV lineup. Although it was thought that the Veloster N would also stop production after the 2022 model year, it carries over into the 2023 model year.

Standard on the N is the performance package which comes with 19-inch wheels, an electronic limited-slip differential, and a variable valved exhaust. As one of the few sports cars that are also a hatchback, the Veloster N seats four and has 19.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, or 44.5 cu. ft. if the seats are down. On the inside, it features an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation and smartphone mirroring. It has an eight-speaker Infinity audio system with both a subwoofer and amplifier.

The 2023 Veloster N is available with only one powertrain. Hyundai has equipped it with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. This gives the Veloster N an output of 275 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It also has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined.

Safety features on the Veloster N include six airbags, traction control, braking assist, lane-keeping, a vehicle stability management system, blind-spot warnings, rear cross-traffic collision warnings, and driver attention alerts. Even the odd way the Veloster was built, with one door on the driver’s side and two doors on the passenger side, was meant to enhance passenger safety during entering and exiting the vehicle.

Pricing & Release Date

Hyundai hasn't given a precise release date for the 2023 Veloster N, but we estimate it will be available sometime in the fall. The Veloster N was the most expensive vehicle of the lineup, and since not much is expected to change for 2023, it’s likely to remain close to the current model’s MSRP of $33,545.

As a sports car, the Veloster N will face off against a bunch of competition, with some of the usual suspects including Hyundai Kona N, Toyota Supra, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Subaru WRX, Volkswagen Golf GTI, and Honda Civic Type R.
