TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2020 Hyundai Veloster

2020 Hyundai Veloster Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2019 The 275-horsepower Hyundai Veloster N (with Performance Package) has nearly as much power as a front-wheel-drive compact can practically make use of. (I say "nearly" because the Civic Type-R has 306 horsepower.) Even with the eLSD and high-performance summer tires, hard acceleration can yield wheel-hop, wheelspin, and mild torque steer in first gear and the beginning of second. A conventional all-wheel-drive system, as employed in the 292-horsepower Golf R, would virtually eliminate wheelspin and torque steer, but render the chassis so insensitive to inputs that it would be less fun to drive. A more sophisticated torque vectoring all-wheel-drive system like the ones in the no longer manufactured Ford Focus RS and Mitsubishi Evo would raise the car's limits without dulling its responsiveness, but would be heavy and expensive. Like that in many current high-performance cars, the Veloster N's exhaust crackles and pops when you lift off the accelerator at high rpm. Too much noise? Then select "normal" mode rather than "sport" or "sport+." Other than this sporty exhaust the engine sounds like nothing special. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as this engine wasn't initially developed for use in high-performance compacts. Instead, it was offered in Hyundai's and Kia's midsize sedans and crossovers as a V6 alternative. German manufacturers sometimes underrate their engines, while the 201-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged engine in the regular Veloster feels weaker than its specs suggest it should. Between this and the limitations imposed by front-wheel-drive, I wondered whether the 275-horsepower Veloster N would actually feel more powerful than the 228-horsepower Volkswagen. Well, it does. With its throttle cracked wide open, the Hyundai accelerates with significantly more vigor. The Veloster N's shifter feels a little clunky--it's no match for tight and precise levers in Hondas and Mazdas. But it feels tighter and generally better than the lighter, longer-throw shifter in the Jetta GLI. Automatic rev-matching simplifies downshifts. see full Hyundai Veloster review

2020 3dr Hatch turbocharged 275hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The 2 liter turbo in the Veloster N pulls hard, and with the N-mode settings turned all the way up, sounds fantastic as well, with happy bursts of pops and crackles when you lift with the exhaust set to the Sport+ mode. Power delivery is very strong from just under 2K all the way through about 5500 or so, tapering off somewhat as you run past that to the 6750 RPM redline, and little shift lights will illuminate at the top of the gauge pod as you get there. The gas pedal is quite progressive, especially coming off of my Focus ST, shich had a more on/off feel to it - you can be very specific in how much power you want in this car. The shifter has short throws and is reasonably precise - there's a bit of notchiness, but everything is quite natural to use, and it doesn't fight you when you try to make things happen quickly (something I couldn't say about my Genesis Coupe). The clutch pedal is light and easy to modulate, as are the brakes - someone clearly spent a lot of time getting these things to feel right. see full Hyundai Veloster review
