The biggest change for a 2021 indication year is a further of a dual-clutch involuntary transmission. It’s been a prolonged time coming: Hyundai announced a two-pedal chronicle approach behind during a car’s launch in tumble 2018. The customary six-speed primer remains—and it’s a good instance of a breed. But it’s no tip that primer transmissions are very niche in a North American market. If an automobile means some-more people put a Veloster N on their selling list, and keeps fun cars like it around, good that sounds like a win-win to us.

DCT-equipped models come with an “N Grin Shift” feature, that boosts limit torque from 260 to 278 lb-ft for adult to 20 seconds and minimizes change times.

The obtuse Veloster models already offer a (different) dual-clutch setup. This eight-speed DCT is also approaching to arrive in a Sonata N-Line after this year.

Hyundai’s apartment of motorist assistance tech, including back cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning, lane-keep assist, line following assist, and programmed puncture braking, is also standard.

2021 Veloster N models will start display adult in dealerships this October. Expect a cost burst interjection to a combined customary equipment, presumably even somewhat over a $30,000 mark. Even still, it will paint one of a strongest new-car opening bargains on a market.
