Hyundai will introduce its hotted up Veloster N Performance Concept at the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas featuring a raft to body enhancements to the performance model.
Unfortunately for Australia, the Veloster N on which it is based isn’t confirmed for local consumption; still it shows the Korean giant is serious about its performance line-up.
Back to the concept, the car sports a number of exterior parts from KWA, including an aggressive rear wing, custom bonnet, and orange highlights on the lower parts of the hot hatch/coupe.
Inside, the cabin is decked out in suede-like Alcantara and comes with a part of Sabelt seats. Other interior highlights include an aluminium shift knob, a red starter button and more contrasting orange bits.
Under the bonnet, the Veloster N Performance’s 202kW 2.0-litre turbocharged inline four remains except for the addition of a Capriso cat-back exhaust system. Hyundai has also upgraded the car’s chassis which now sports an Extreme Racing coil-over suspension setup that uses H&R coil springs, front and rear anti-roll bars from Daewon Steel, additional chassis bracing from WIF and 19-inch OZ wheels shot with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres.
Stopping power comes courtesy of Alcon’s 15-inch front and 14.2-inch rear discs clamped by a set of six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.
