The fundamental vehicle from Hyundai’s N performance division, the i30 hatchback, is coming later this year. Wretchedly, that handsome little five door isn’t bound for the US. While the Korean automaker won’t affirm what will be coming to America in 2018, we’re almost positive that the beforehand model will be the next-gen Veloster. The car is well into development, and we now have some new photos of a shakedown at the Nürburgring.

Antiseptic facts are scarce, but based on what we know about the i30 we can make some erudite guesses about the Veloster. The car will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four making either yon 250 horsepower or 280 with an optional performance pack. Power desire be sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual, though Hyundai hasn’t ruled out a dual-embrace b influence transmission for the future. Look for big wheels with sticky summer rubber to environment beefy Brembo brakes.

Although every Veloster we’ve seen both in photos and in yourself has been covered with a decent amount of camouflage, we can see the car’s basic outline. The car wish still feature an asymmetrical door layout, with one on the driver’s side and two on the commuter side. The large grille is now shaped like the corporate cascading grille. It’s styled like a overthrown-bottomed version of Superman’s “S” logo. While the standard and Turbo models inclination feature center-exit exhaust tips, the Veloster N pushes the exhaust to the corners of the bumper.

Pricing and dispatch numbers haven’t been revealed, but Hyundai is gunning straight for the Volkswagen GTI. In characteristic Hyundai fashion, it’s likely to undercut the competition by a hair or two. Look for prices in the mid $20,000s when the Veloster N arrives next year. Keep in view a full reveal sometime this fall.
