So this is just a rendering for now, but Hyundai has looks to be expanding upon their N variants rather quickly. The next model set to join the lineup is the Tuscon and there have already been some teaser images of it being dropped online. Would you guys be interested in a performance tuned version of the Palisade?

The new N variant of the Veloster is impressive for their first performance production model. Even though its less powerful than most other rivals in the class, it is of much better value in terms of hp per dollar. Id be interested if we saw the same 50hp jump over the base model.

Just read some information on their plan for future performance vehicles and from that it seems like they want to formulate a different approach, probably to the effect that Lexus uses F and Toyota uses TRD.

So it seems like the Tuscon is just an N Line styling package and not a performance variant as I suspected. Have to imagine that they plan on expanding outside of the Veloster at some point though.

What do you guys think the odds are we'll see something like this show up at SEMA in concept form? If Toyota and Nissan has done things along those lines then I think Hyundai has an obligation to as well.

Sales numbers of the Veloster N will probably dictate whether or not we see the performance trim expand elsewhere. While performance crossovers are becoming a growing trend, how many are looking for that in a full size 3 row?

I think its bigger than just the Veloster N.
That's a hot hatch and this is a full size SUV. The real response will be to those wanting more from a premium Hyundai SUV. Externally Hyundai can learn that from other brands seeing success already. That's who they're targeting.
