4 Ways Hyundai's Veloster N DCT Outperforms The Manual Transmission Version
Hyundai Veloster N DCT Features vs 6MT - Sponsored by Hyundai.

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster N has stepped up the game, especially with the 8-speed DCT. It now features N Grin Shift, N Power Shift, N Track Sense Shift, and launch control. Now these may sound like video game features, but that’s kinda what Hyundai is going for here with the experience, and the good news is each of these features actually have tangible performance improvements that they provide for the car. From a performance standpoint, these features set the dual clutch Veloster N apart from the manual transmission version.
N Grin Shift
The whole idea of N Grin Shift is to temporarily give you more performance. Pressing a button on your steering wheel allows your engine to increase boost for up to 20 seconds!
N Power Shift
This feature alone reduces the 0-100 kph time (or 0-62 mph time) by 0.2 seconds. It's like power shifting in a manual transmission, except you've got a wet, multi-plate clutch to handle the driveline shock!
N Track Sense Shift
N Track Sense Shift is a predictive shift logic that’s based on how you’re driving. If you start driving more aggressively, the system matches the gearbox response to your driving style. If you’re accelerating hard, turning at higher g’s, and braking hard, the system is going to use the most aggressive gear shift strategy possible.
Launch Control (DCT)
Now there’s another cool feature that differentiates the DCT model from the manual transmission, and that’s launch control. Both transmissions offer launch control, but there are several advantages with the DCT. It employs five techniques, which we'll break down in this video, to execute a powerful launch.

    He missed the #1 thing when describing all of the things to worry about when tracking that most people don't think about. That is when to and when not to push in the clutch or shift on the track. The simple act of pushing the clutch, if you do it in a corner, is enough to upset the balance of the car and all hell breaks loose.
    I upgraded to the DCT precisely because I was spending all of my time thinking about these things and not enjoying the track.

    I've test drove the Veloster n 6 speed and the clutch feel is incredibly bad. The pedal will cantilever like a compound bow and throw your foot through the friction zone and make casual driving incredibly annoying, as I nearly stalled it at every start and stalled it once. I've been driving manuals since I started driving, so don't say I can't drive a manual. The vw gti clutch is incredibly smooth and I love my mk7

    So you can spend More money on features you should be able to do as an active driver. You know, like paying attention to your lane position, paying attention to your following distance, knowing where other cars are around you, possibly in your blind spot, looking ahead to prepare for possible emergencies, know how to parallel park. If all these lazy driver nanny features were removed, cars would cost less and drivers would be forced to . . . Drive Their Car. OMG GASP!

      @Valerie Rodger dude... I didn’t insult you. I called you a “dummy”. If I was really mad I would used harsher words. But ok, make all these fancy categories if you want to, in my eyes I see regular cars, work trucks, and sports cars. All sports cars are in the same boat in my eyes. In reality people buy cars based on how much money they can spend on a car, then all those other preferences come second. So if I have $30k-35k to spend on a sports car, I’m looking at performance numbers and reliability. Don’t get me wrong I love the Veloster N DCT, I think it’s one of the best cars of the year. All I’m saying is my cheap little Camaro is faster.

The Camaro is a rear wheel drive muscle car / pony car. The Veloster is a front wheel drive hatch. And if being triggered into an emotional rant and tossing around insults is normal for you, you need help.

      @Valerie Rodger the Veloster N is the best Veloster trim you can buy. The 2.0T Camaro is the cheapest lowest trim Camaro. The Veloster N costs $5000 more than the Camaro. What are you even talking about???? The Camaro is the slowest “muscle car” of all in a straight line, but is the fastest one around the track BECAUSE OF HANDLING not straight line. Get your facts straight. If you think I’m “triggered” right now, you must be really sensitive, this is how I talk all the time.

The Veloster N isn't even meant to be a competitive car, whether in a straight line or on the track - it's meant to be a fun car at an affordable price, set up to feel the best rather than be the fastest. But one little poke completely sets you off in defense of your car - you really might want to think about that. Is your ego so tied to your car that you respond so emotionally?

    In certain situations, can a more powerful car like this, be more fuel efficient than something like a 1L Ford fiesta? For example going down a motorway slip road? This car can cruise slowly to speed or floor it and be at 70mph in a couple of seconds, however something like a ford fiesta may spend 10-20 seconds getting to 70, meaning they spend more time at full throttle meaning more fuel goes in the engine.

      They've come a long way from the cars that I remember from the '80s! Hiring a bunch of engineers away from Toyota vastly improved their reliability, and fielding works teams in motorsports has definitely translated into more exciting cars on the market. I'm still disappointed that they won't be selling the Elantra GT (i30) in North America anymore, though.

    Before you even purchase the car, you are enrolled into a 2-year higher education program, where you learn the basics of Hyundai Veloster shifting. After the completion of the courses you are taking the final exam and only if you pass you are allowed to place a purchase order for the vehicle. Your order goes straight to Hyundai Headquarters screening team that along with your grades, takes into consideration your family status, your hobbies, your drinking habits and the shape of your receding hairline. Finally, if all looks proper, you receive a letter of confirmation and you are allowed to get to your nearest Hyundai representative to arrange the preparations for your graduation, where you will also get the keys to your veloster, which now is two years older.
    Safe travels.

    In nearly half of century of driving I never went without at least one MT vehicle in my garage until I bought a DCT GTI in 2013. When I replaced it in 2018 with a MK7 GTI I didn't hesitate to go with a DCT again. I'd still choose a manual transmission Miata simply for the heritage in a pure sports car with limited power but otherwise I'd never go back to a manual transmission vehicle. No more than I'd return to a car without power assisted steering or fuel injection.

    It should also be noted that GOOD automatics ALSO give a surge of acceleration during a shift, for the same reason the DCTs do. But the torque converter converts some of the brief large drop in speed across it into a greater surge of torque. Remember GOOD automatics? Pre-electronic, American automatics with a shift kit, that kick you in the butt when they shift!

    Its phenomenal. I've ditched my 2018 BMW m4 dct after one test drive 2021 VN dct. It drives so good.

      @Dr. Skillz this VN dct drives like a rear wheel drive. Only thing I cant do is drifting in rain. Well I still have my manual 2015 scion frs for that. VN dct is just crazy good. I know that on may they r making same car in elantra N with same drive train. And also Kona N w AWD

      You don’t miss the rear wheel drive feeling?

    Somebody made fun of V-tec by telling me it's like boost-lag, ALL the time.. so if I wanted performance, why would I only have power some of the time, and not all of the time? Obviously my civic wasn't a race car, but it stands clear to me, that it's silly to limit a car, if as the driver, I want to have control. Track NTS is pretty cool, set launch controls are perfect for sports cars, all of which really sets Hyundai in a neat place in the market in my eyes. It's pretty slick, but I still would hate to have to hit a button, and then wait again to get the performance I expect out of the car.

    Is 140lb extra weight from the DCT alone, or did it also include other optional features?

      Everything combined, difference in weight between the two cars.

    was wondering, is it possible to fix the issue of dct wearing and heating when doing a lot of low speed stop n go and crawling in traffic with foot on the brake pedal.maybe with brake by wire when crawling, the very first part of the brake pedal travel could just progressively disengage the clutch without actually braking, if you want to coast for instance its better to just unclutch than have both engine applying positive torque and brakes applying negative torque. you just have to figure out how to make it feel natural even if you are downhill or uphill. or maybe remove crawling all together. I think evs are great because you can go seamlessly from applying positive torque to zero torque like coasting to negative torque (braking). wether it's one pedal or with two pedal is not the most important in my opinion, it's the fact that everything is done smoothly with no disruption. allows to be both quick and comfortable, so if transmissions manage to reach this level of smoothness it would definitely make ice better.

    I hate how hard it's becoming to justify buying a 3 pedal car.

    I run a lot of HPDE. And I've driven many cars on different tracks. The DCT in quite a few of them could yield faster lap times. But that's not the main reason I do this. I do it because I enjoy every aspect driving my car to its limit. Good outcome or bad, I control the car. Not the other way around. As my lap time gets better, it's because I am breaking more effectively, shifting more efficiently, turning in and out of Corners smoother.
    As in life, it's not about the destination , it's about the journey.

      I agree. I've done a few hundred HPDE events at Summit Point (main track), and working the stick, pedals, and throttle are the fun factor. The journey included rebuilding the car to SCCA spec's for DP, but keeping it streetable.

    cool tricks but it almost sounds like any performance DCT should have it. having shortest gear shifts with almost no loss of power is really what DCT's are promising from the start, sounds logical to have a regular mode that minimizes wear on the clutches and maximises comfort, and sport mode that just maximizes performance. being able to compute the best gear at any speed or to memorize a downshifts sounds like a programmer's one day job including testing. 30s boost has nothing to do with the transmission. it's nice that they went all in with launch control optimization, sounds like it could become standard soon on any performance oriented car. cheaper to make some software optimizations like this, that you can quite easily share across different models, than design and produce performance parts like lighter pistons/valves...and an easy way to differentiate standard version and performance version at no cost
