Hot Hatch: Hyundai Veloster N


Peter Lyon Contributor - Forbes

When a hot hatch is propelled by a 275hp turbocharged engine, employs 19-inch wheels, a launch control and torque steer, on purpose mind you, then you know the manufacturer has their own unique philosophy of fun. That’s exactly what I found when I tested the new Hyundai Veloster N in California recently.

This is the best handling car to come out of the halls of Hyundai, well, ever. Actually, it also just happens to be one of the best looking cars ever born in Korea. There’s a reason for that. To get straight to the heart of the matter, the class-leading handling and great looks all comes down to a perfect fusion of Korean technology, reliability and vision, and German design and performance tuning.

I could not pen this story without first mentioning the integral part that two legendary Germans played in the creation of Korea’s hottest ever hatch. Ex-Audi senior designer Peter Schreyer, who arrived at the Hyundai-Kia group a decade ago, is now head of design for both brands. He and his team are responsible for not only this hatch but more poignantly, they've successfully elevated the brand's designs and aesthetics to levels comparable with some of Europe's top makes.

Meanwhile, taking Hyundai’s performance and handling to a whole new level was Albert Biermann, the former BMW M Division chief engineer who is now holding Hyundai’s R&D reigns, which the brand calls its “N” high-performance department. He particularly revelled with the settings on the Veloster N.
