Hyundai Veloster N to be Discontinued

After an interesting 11-year career, the Hyundai Veloster will be completely pulled from the shelves

  • The regular Veloster was silently dropped last year.

  • The Elantra, Kona, and their respective N versions will pick up the slack.

The Hyundai Veloster was, in a way, the spiritual successor to the Tiburon. If you don’t recall what that is, it’s likely that many people will have forgotten about the Veloster in the not-too-distant future as well.

2019 Hyundai Veloster N Review: So close to claiming the hot-hatch throne

According to a report by Hankyung, the sporty 4-door hatchback Hyundai Veloster will cease to be produced as early as next month. Only the hot Veloster N remained on the roster in Canada and the USA after the regular versions were pulled from circulation a little under two years ago. At this point, it’s unclear how much longer there will be any available for purchase but we assume very few.

Many will argue that the Tiburon’s actual successor was the Genesis Coupe, but the fact is that the latter was a very different car with its front-engine rear-wheel-drive layout. Like the Tiburon, the Veloster was FWD and in the “shark’s image, it found favour with tuners but was rarely considered to have the performance potential offered by the Genesis.

Despite the loss, enthusiasts still have access to the incredible Elantra N and fun-filled Kona N within the Hyundai family.
