Hyundai Veloster N Performance Concept Flaunts Model’s Tuning Potential
Hyundai’s Veloster N hatchback was plenty hot already, but a new concept for November’s SEMA Show has it positively sizzling.
The Veloster N Performance Concept incorporates an array of OEM-quality aftermarket components that sharpen its looks and enable even more thrilling dynamics behind the wheel. With its lineup of bolt-on custom parts, the concept should serve as powerful inspiration for Veloster N owners who are looking to tune and personalize their rides.
The concept sports some aggressively styled exterior features from KWA, including a hood, garnishes for the grille and fog lamps, a front splitter, side sills, a rear diffuser and rear spoiler, engine cover, and outside mirror covers.

The concept’s powertrain and specs stay the same as the regular Veloster N. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter direct-injected puts out 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, with an available performance package that cranks horsepower up to 275. There’s also a six-speed manual transmission with downshift rev-matching, a multi-mode electronically controlled suspension, and an available torque-vectoring limited-slip differential.
The Hyundai Veloster N Performance Concept won’t be the only customized Veloster in Las Vegas next month. Also coming to SEMA is the Veloster Grappler, a concept that turns the three-door hatchback into an intimidating off-road machine.
