First Drive: 2019 Hyundai Veloster N

We’ve been eagerly waiting for this drive. Hyundai wants to get serious about performance and, for us here in the States, the first taste of this notion is the Veloster N.
N it’s pretty damn good.
This is a 275-horsepower Hyundai hot hatch with all the right ingredients. A stiff chassis, sorted suspension, slick-shifting 6-speed manual, and proper brakes and tires add up to a seriously fun car to drive.
EDIT: Quick note regarding the tires on the 18-inch wheels of the standard version. It gets super sticky Michelin Pilot Sports not Pirellis. The 19-inch Performance pack wheels get the P Zeros.
[Disclaimer: Hyundai flew us to Northern California, put us in a hotel, and fed us.]
