You know an automaker is serious about performance when it stakes a claim on a piece of the alphabet. Letters are fast, particularly once you move past frumpy B and lackadaisical H into the latter two-thirds, where M, R, and S transform mass-production ennui into factory-built adrenaline. That's exactly what we have here: two ordinary economy cars overengineered into track-capable front-wheel-drive hot hatches, brought to us by the letters N and R. Their speed, grip, and theatrics had us cackling like Elmo.

Predictably, the rear design has changed, from the shape of the trunk to the taillights and the bold black spoiler. Inside the cabin, look for an N steering wheel, 8-inch touchscreen, red stitching, and seats that fold flat.

Born under the care of ex–BMW M bosses, Hyundai's nascent N division honors both Namyang-home to Hyundai's Korean R&D center-and the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife. The division's first export to the States, the three-door Veloster N comes bearing a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four, six-speed manual transmission, and powder-blue seatbelts. The Veloster N starts at roughly $28,000 and with 250 horsepower. However, potential buyers should consider the estimated $2000 Performance package on our test car mandatory equipment. It adds 25 horsepower, electronically adjustable dampers, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, larger brakes, an active exhaust, and an upsize from 18- to 19-inch wheels. Beyond that, the options list looks similar to the Honda Civic Type R's, which is to say that you can choose from a limited selection of paint colors.

The Civic Type R redeems its styling—and then some—by driving like no other front-wheel-drive car in existence. While the Veloster reveals imperfections at the fringes, this Civic is at its best when it's pushed to its limits. Channeled into speed, the Type R 's always-on intensity translates into absolute

Strip the Type R from the picture and the N 's track numbers are at the head of the front-drive hot-hatch class.

If it's going to win its first battle, the N division will have to beat Honda's Type R badge, which has a 26-year head start-though only a fleeting fraction of that run has elapsed in America. The Acura Integra that wore the badge here for a few years in the late 1990s and early 2000s still looms large in our minds, and the second car to carry the name on our soil, this Civic Type R, is steadily wearing a similar groove in our hippocampi. Around this time last year, the then-new Civic Type R toppled the all-wheel-drive Ford Focus RS, which itself had knocked out the Subaru WRX STI and the Volkswagen Golf R in an earlier comparison. The Civic Type R sells in a single $35,595 spec with a 306-hp turbo 2.0-liter inline-four channeled through a six-speed manual and a helical-gear limited-slip differential, all riding on electronically controlled dampers.

To keep weight and cost in check, both these cars forgo some of the luxuries you might expect in this price range. There are no sunroofs, no heated or powered seats, and the Veloster's touchscreen doesn't include navigation. (Both cars come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility). This is fine by us. In the case of the Civic, we'd like to subtract from-rather than add to-the red-splashed cabin and the exterior festooned with overwrought styling elements to make it less of a four-wheeled caricature.

Honda will be storming into SEMA this year with an impressive array of vehicles spanning the motorsports genre. Nearly all of them are familiar to the masses, but the company has a new concept vehicle that we know very little about. In fact we don’t even have a name for it yet, but Honda proclaims it will be “one-of-a-kind.” That's not a terribly impressive claim considering every concept vehicle is unique.
