Overall Rating


"With a 275-hp turbo-four that makes delightfully juvenile noises and a chassis that causes stirring emotions, Hyundai's three-door hatch is as funky as it is fun to drive." - Car And Driver

The 2022 Hyundai Veloster N remains the same as the 2021 model year with its 275 hp 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine. This performance hatchback costs $32,500 which seems pretty generous considering its impressive 4.8 seconds 0-60 MPH acceleration. Moreover, its unique sport tuned steering is an energy absorbing column that maintains the handling ease and impact force resilience simultaneously. 

In terms of its finance and expenses, the Hyundai Veloster depreciates by an approx $12,000 making the resale value mark nearly $18,500 to $20,000 after 5 years. In addition to that, the general maintenance amounts to $2,800 while the repairing charges $622 during the same 5-year tenure. And the overall insurance rate estimates to be almost $8,775.

2022 Hyundai Veloster Engine and Performance

8.0/10

"It has the potency of an engine twice the size and displacement, and the exhaust note is delightful." - Motor Trend

The 2022 Hyundai Veloster N dashes on the tracks with its 2.0l Turno I-4 engine that churns out 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It comes hooked up either with the standard 6-Speed Manual or the optional 8-Speed DCT that costs $1,500 more than the former. Both the configurations are paired with an FWD for the power delivery at wheels. 

The Hyundai Veloster has a Drive Mode Select featuring Normal, Sport, and Sport + that makes mechanical and throttle adjustments. As the suspension remains relatively soft for the Normal mode but gets stiffer for better cornering and increased damping for the latter modes. It also receives unique sport tuned steering to complement the easy maneuvering of such performance.   

The 2022 Veloster N sprints from 0-60 MPH in 4.8 seconds while the quarter-mile takes 13.4 seconds. Its top speed can be as high as 155 MPH, thereby reinforcing its power phenomena. Apart from these, it comes equipped with 13.6-inch front vented and 12.4-inch rear disc brakes that do not allow it to go further than 157 ft while braking from 70-0 MPH.

"Not only is it a conversation starter, but it serves to provide easier access to the backseat." - Autotrader

2022 Hyundai Veloster Exterior

7.0/10

"The rest of the car does its best to push the coupe narrative, however, with a sloping roofline and a low-slung ride height." - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Hyundai Veloster N sports the same dimensions and design philosophy as its predecessor. The 4-exterior color trims of Racing Red, Ultra Black, Lunar White, and Performance Blue are simply enticing in their own rights. The front even gets LED Projector headlights along with Automatic Headlight Control.  

The Hyundai Veloster N rides on the 19-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli PZero tires. The rear, meanwhile, is attached with a spoiler for increasing the downforce and a specific diffuser for further assistance. It also gets Center LED High-Mount Stop Light in addition.

Pros - Lithe handling, peppy turbocharged engine, intuitive infotainment system and along with practicality.

Cons - Elevated road noise, poor interior quality and subpar fuel economy.

decent compact hatchback with a straightforward infotainment system and a nice-looking cabin. My Hyundai Veloster hatchback is the ideal companion at the ideal moment and at the ideal price. It has expressive shapes, a quirky personality, and a powerful engine. For the class, second-row space is approximately average. The base 147-horsepower 2.0-liter engine isn't exactly heart-racing, and merging onto freeways can feel strained. Overall I am totally satisfied with it for the time being, as my veloster is good value for m...

Feature-packed and Fuel-efficient The Hyundai Veloster is a fuel-efficient commuter that suits small-sized families well.

Even in this base trim, I got a user-friendly 7-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto integration. It also has adjustable driving modes to provide better all-terrain performance while driving.

Drives like no other hatch What do I say about this hatchback!? Who says you needs a cool sedan or a sports car to grab attention? The Veloster does that in style and I myself end-up checking my car out in the parking lot. The Veloster isn’t just a good looking hatch but also performs great and the turbo charged heart just pumps out insane amounts of power to keep the whole drive very thrilling. The only catch is that the aggressive styling of this car ate away some of the trunk space making the Veloster a not so cargo fr...
