2020 Hyundai Veloster N Review

from the expert editorial team

The past three Most Fun-to-Drive awards have gone to cars known for an appealing mix of affordability and driving pleasure, and the 2020 Hyundai Veloster N takes that formula to another level. It’s the most fun we had behind the wheel this year.

What Is the 2020 Hyundai Veloster?

Redesigned last year, the front-wheel-drive, four-seat Veloster is a sporty compact hatchback with one driver-side door and two doors on the passenger’s side. Power comes from a standard 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. An available turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder makes 201 hp and teams with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A high-performance Veloster N powered by a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is rated as high as 275 hp is also available. Competitors include the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Toyota Corolla hatchback and Mazda3 hatchback. 

What’s New on the 2020 Hyundai Veloster?

All models now have cargo area tie-down hooks, and gloss-black exterior accents have replaced flat-black trim. 

What Features in the 2020 Hyundai Veloster Are Most Important?

The Veloster’s unusual door arrangement makes it easier to get in and out of the passenger-side backseat. Standard features include heated side mirrors, air conditioning, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and a 60/40-split, folding backseat. Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist and a driver-drowsiness monitor. 

Available safety and tech features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, an Infinity premium stereo and wireless charging. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Hyundai Veloster?

With its refined suspension, responsive steering and strong turbo engine, the Veloster is a fun-to-drive hatchback. However, the car’s distinctive styling does contribute to poor rear visibility, a claustrophobic backseat and limited utility. The Veloster N is a blast to drive, and it took home top honors as the Most Fun-to-Drive Car of 2020.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
