As the revs approach redline, the N-design centre cluster displays a progressive sequential shift indicator, alerting the driver of an impending shift point for maximum acceleration.
A wide range of driver tuning preferences are accessed via the N Grin Control drive mode selection system.
Modes include Normal, Sport, N, Eco and N Custom, differentiating engine throttle response, engine speed rev-matching, exhaust note, active differential tuning, suspension damping rates, steering feel and yaw-control characteristics.
Hyundai says at this stage Veloster N is looking unlikely for Australia as the car is left-hand drive only, aimed at Korea and the USA markets.
“There are no current plans for right-hand drive production, but we are in discussions with head office,” a spokesman said.
