The base configuration will offer around 250 horsepower – still more than the Golf GTI – while the performance model will add 20 hp and feature high-end parts such as Brembo brakes. The car is based on an all-new platform, which is lighter and stiffer. The Hyundai Veloster N is expected to debut sometime next year as a 2019 model.
