The all-new 2019 Hyundai Veloster and Veloster Turbo made their world debuts at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Instantly identifiable as the wacky coupe, but with brand new sheetmetal, interior, and foundations, the Veloster carries on with its polarizing styling, excellent fun-to-dollar ratio, as well as its distinct unbalanced door configuration.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Styling
Although the 2019 Veloster is brand new, its styling sticks near the previous car’s general percentages and design, and you ‘d never 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 proportions that are more pleasing overall. The strange passenger-side door configuration– with a standard 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 choice.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Interior
Inside the new Veloster is a much nicer interior than before. Motorist focused, with an 8-inch “floating” display screen above the audio controls in the middle of the dash. Infotainment includes modern 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 enhanced security, with lane keeping help, motorist attention warning, automatic high beams, blind spot and rear cross traffic cautions, and adaptive cruise control.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Engine
Drivers can choose in between two 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 handbook or 6-speed automatic transmission. While sure to be fuel effective, we think enthusiasts lured by the Veloster’s promise of performance 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 guarantees better acceleration than the base engine.
Helping handling is an all-new chassis enhanced by additional electronic aids. The new Torque Vectoring Control is basic, and utilizes the stability control system to use braking force to the inside front wheel in tough cornering maneuvers, hence directing more power to the outside wheel in the turn and enhancing grip. Selectable drive modes change shows for engine, transmission, and guiding feel in both turbo and non-turbo models alike. Nevertheless, the Turbo gets an updated suspension and shocks, along with a choice for 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 “Summer” tires.
N Performance model included
The Veloster N is distinguished by a special front fascia and grille with devoted front duct for improved brake cooling. The look is continued with side rocker sills and available lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke style. The back is fitted with a large spoiler, special fascia with incorporated diffuser, and high-flow double exhaust tips. Inside, Veloster N features front cloth sport seats with aggressive reinforcing, N-design wheel, shift knob, sill plates, and instrument cluster. Interior information are accented by an N efficiency blue accent style.
The Veloster N is equipped with a larger 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making an approximated 275 horsepower and approximately 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a close-ratio, short-throw six-speed manual transmission with downshift rev-matching capability. The suspension utilizes multi-mode electronically-controlled shocks with a track-focused N mode readily available. An N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential improves launch efficiency, lowers velocity slip understeer and increases grip through precise torque-vectoring.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Price and Release Date
Prices haven’t been revealed however are likely to stay near to the current model’s, which range in between about $19,000 to a bit more than $27,000 for a totally packed Turbo. We’ll discover more when the Veloster goes on sale at some point in the second quarter of this year.
