Hyundai’s sporty compact car returns without any changes for the 2022 model year, which means of course that the turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine is back with its 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission or, optionally, an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Veloster N now has company in the lineup with the addition of the hot Elantra N sedan and Kona N crossover.
