Turn 10 Studios has announced not one but two Forza Motorsport 7 Car Packs in as many days. As car enthusiasts are aware, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is taking place in Detroit this week. Yesterday, Hyundai unveiled the all-new 2019 Veloster Turbo the high-performance Veloster N. As it turns out, both these vehicles are available free of charge for everyone who owns Forza Motorsport 7.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
Since 2012 the Hyundai Veloster has been keeping things different and exciting in the hot hatch segment. With its asymmetrical 2+1 door configuration, the Veloster has always been unconventional, functional, and very cool. The new Veloster Turbo sports more than 200 horses from its 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine. Building on the design of the last generation, the all-new Veloster achieves a more athletic stance and sportier coupe-like appearance. Different is good, so hop in the new Veloster Turbo in Forza and get ready to turn heads.
2019 Hyundai Veloster N
Capitalizing on the successes of the Hyundai i20 in the World Rally Championship, the Veloster N is ready to take Hyundai to the next level. Veloster N was born in Namyang, Hyundai’s global R&D center, and was thoroughly honed at its Nurburgring-based testing center in Germany. It’s also no surprise that with the assistance of Albert Biermann, formerly of the BMW M-division, the Veloster is a true evolution for the funky three-door hot hatch. One look at the expansive and aggressive grill that covers massive intakes and an intercooler, or at the large diameter dual exhaust, will tell you this Veloster breathes deep and makes the right kinds of sounds you expect from a turbo-charged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine. From a driving standpoint, the Veloster N features details – such as a six-speed manual, oversized brakes, and a electronically controlled suspension – that make each unexplored road a new adventure.
In addition, today’s January Update also brings with it the Totino’s Car Pack as well as a number of fixes and updates. The Totino Car Pack brings with it a number of interesting cars which include:

The Totino’s Car Pack is free to those who own the Car Pass and is also available as an add-on pack for an additional charge for those who don’t. The fixes in this months update are pretty minor and include:
