Hyundai Veloster

We have some interesting information to share with you this time and it’s regarding the new Hyundai Veloster that is soon for an update.

The latest update we give out mentioned about Hyundai’s executives considering the possibility of taking out the third door due to some feedback from current and future owners about the increase of aesthetics and appealing of the car if it came with 2 doors only, just like the RM15 concept running around in Korea.

Some time ago, our source told us this is no longer a possibility and Hyundai is planning to keep the third door for its new model coming up in 2017 Hyundai Veloster. Here is the most important and interesting part of this leak. We were told Hyundai is planning to make a Veloster N Performance, just like the Genesis Coupe and i30.

We don’t know if that means the R-Spec will be discontinue on the veloster lineup or keep it as another option but what will come with the N Perfomance is a new engine.

I’m sure some of you can guess which engine that is and if you mind is on the in-line 4 Theta engine, you are correct, the new engine will be the 2.0 Turbo engine found on the Genesis coupe. We were not given any output numbers but we are assuming it’ll be similar to when it was discontinued.

That’s not all, since it’ll be under the N Performance bracket then so modifications are done to the suspension as well, we were told the Veloster will get an independent suspension just like the discontinued model, the Tiburon/Tuscani.

It was not confirm if this will also apply to all the models under the N Performance but we sure hope so.

This could all be some of the work done by the second high-ranking German Executive hired by Hyundai Motor Group, Albert Biermann, with its new role Head of Vehicle Test & High Performance. Biermann, as a HMG employee, will improve on high performance, ride, handling, safety, reliability and NVH reductions.

    Yes, I really do hope that an independent rear suspension is standard on all Velosters. Hyundai have done quite well with the torsion beam, but there’s just no comparison to a proper IRS.
