According to Road & Track magazine, the Veloster N is the best high performance car
The year is nearing its end, which means that there are numerous options for car of the year, sometimes even in particularly interesting niches where it is possible to combine cars with drastically different power, performance and even prices.
And one such is Car of the Year performance organized by the American Journal Road and trail.
A truly colorful society has arrived at Thunderhill Raceway Park, California.
It consisted of 11 cars ranging from 180 to over 630 hp and, more interestingly, the $ 30,000 to $ 332,000 price range.
The cheapest is the Hyundai Veloster N, the most expensive McLaren 300LT Spider, and other names include the names of the dream car: BMW M2 Competition, Chevrolet Corvette, Lamborghini Huracan Evo, Lexus RC F Track, Lotus Evora GT, Mazda Miata RF Club, Nissan GT-R NISMO , Porsche 911 and Toyota Supra.
It is clear that the criteria go beyond speed and lap times, so they capture the feeling of driving on the road and on the track.
Here's what the magazine has to say about this model:
– Being cheap, anyone with a normal 9 to 5 job can afford to drive one of the best cars on the market. But the price is only one part. Pressing the "N" button on the steering wheel dramatically changed the car. From a quiet and comfortable car, it turned into a hot hatch. No front-wheel drive car should do this well. Veloster is eager for action and asks you to go scalp on some super car.
Admittedly, there are drawbacks. The engine has the personality of a printer and the accelerator and brake pedals are very far apart. But it all goes insignificant after 5 minutes.
The Veloster N shows what a great front-wheel drive ride should look like. Every time you ride it you will have a smile on your face as it encourages and treats you like a superhero.
And it all comes from a company that had no reason to create.
