The all-new 2019 Hyundai Veloster and Veloster Turbo made their world debuts at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Instantly recognizable as the quirky coupe, however with all-new sheetmetal, interior, and underpinnings, the Veloster carries on with its polarizing styling, excellent fun-to-dollar ratio, as well as its special asymmetrical door setup.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Styling
Although the 2019 Veloster is brand new, its styling sticks near to the previous car’s general percentages and design, and you ‘d never ever understand that it was based on the Hyundai Elantra compact sedan. The front end is much cleaner, with the new-style Hyundai grille flanked by narrower headlights, and rear end percentages that are more pleasing overall. The strange passenger-side door setup– with a traditional front-hinged little rear door to make getting in the rear seats simpler– is as much a styling signature of the little hatchback as anything, and stays a love-it-or-leave-it decision.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Interior
Inside the new Veloster is a much nicer interior than before. Driver focused, with an 8-inch “drifting” screen above the audio controls in the middle of the dash. Infotainment includes modern-day needs such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB inputs, and so on. Other modern features readily available on the new Veloster focus on improved safety, with lane keeping help, driver attention warning, automatic high beams, blind area and rear cross traffic warnings, and adaptive cruise control.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Engine
Drivers can pick in between 2 different engines to put under the hood. Requirement is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 147 horse power, paired with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. While sure to be fuel efficient, we believe enthusiasts attracted by the Veloster’s pledge of efficiency will be drawn to the 201-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. Readily available with either a 6-speed handbook or a 7-speed dual-clutch automated, it assures better velocity than the base engine.
Helping handling is a brand new chassis improved by further electronic help. The new Torque Vectoring Control is standard, and uses the stability control system to use braking force to the within front wheel in tough cornering maneuvers, hence directing more power to the outdoors wheel in the turn and improving grip. Selectable drive modes modify programming for engine, transmission, and steering feel in both turbo and non-turbo models alike. However, the Turbo gets an updated suspension and shocks, in addition to a choice for 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 “Summer” tires.
N Performance model added
The Veloster N is identified by an exclusive front fascia and grille with devoted front duct for boosted brake cooling. The appearance is continued with side rocker sills and offered light-weight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke design. The rear is fitted with a big spoiler, unique fascia with incorporated diffuser, and high-flow double exhaust suggestions. Inside, Veloster N features front cloth sport seats with aggressive bolstering, N-design steering wheel, shift knob, sill plates, and instrument cluster. Interior details are accentuated by an N performance blue accent style.
The Veloster N is equipped with a larger 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making an approximated 275 horse power and as much as 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a close-ratio, short-throw six-speed manual transmission with downshift rev-matching ability. The suspension employs multi-mode electronically-controlled shocks with a track-focused N mode offered. An N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential enhances launch performance, decreases acceleration slip understeer and increases grip via precise torque-vectoring.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Price and Release Date
Prices have not been revealed however are likely to stay close to the current model’s, which range between about $19,000 to a bit more than $27,000 for a completely loaded Turbo. We’ll find out more when the Veloster goes on sale at some point in the second quarter of this year.
