Hyundai leaves only one version – the high-performance Veloster N in the United States for the next model year.
Despite expectations, only the Hyundai Veloster N will be available for the 2022 model year. The rest trim levels, namely 2.0, 2.0 Premium, R-Spec, Turbo, and Ultimate are dead.
The company had doubts about whether to leave the standard Hyundai Veloster. Finally, they decided to discontinue even it.
The Hyundai Kona and Venue are prioritized instead, Car and Driver informs. By comparison, in the second quarter of 2021, the carmaker sold 28,386 Konas, 6,648 Venues, and only 674 units of the Veloster hatchback in the USA.
The Veloster N comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 75 horsepower and operates in combination with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic one.
The current starting price for the 2021 Veloster N is $33,255 with MT and $34,755 with AT, including a destination fee.
