Go For A Drive In The 2021 Hyundai Veloster N With Its DCT

he new 2021 Hyundai Veloster N was only just unveiled for the U.S. market but the car is already on sale in South Korea.

While the 2021 Veloster N doesn’t look any different than the outgoing model, it is now available with a wet eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, in addition to the six-speed manual. Not only will the eight-speed auto help to broaden the appeal of the car but it will likely prove to be the most popular of the two gearbox options.

To make the dual-clutch transmission just as entertaining to drive as the manual, Hyundai’s N division has added some cool driver-focused features.

First is an ‘N Grin Shift’ (NGS) mode that increases torque by 7 per cent from 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) to 278 lb-ft (377 Nm) by allowing turbocharger overboost and maximizing transmission response for 20 seconds. Additionally, there is an N Power Shift (NPS) mode that engages when the car accelerates at more than 90 per cent throttle and operates upshifts at the perfect time.

As Asian Petrolhead discovers in his review, the eight-speed works beautifully. It provides quick shifts and it includes a manual mode that won’t automatically upshift, even if you are banging against the rev limiter.

Paired to the new dual-clutch is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 275 hp. Hyundai says the Veloster N with the DCT will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.6 seconds and as this review confirms, the car’s exhaust loves to crackle and pop just as much as the six-speed Veloster N.
