2019 Hyundai Veloster
The brand new 2019 Hyundai Veloster and Veloster Turbo made their world debuts at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Immediately identifiable as the quirky coupe, however with brand new sheetmetal, interior, and foundations, the Veloster carries on with its polarizing styling, excellent fun-to-dollar ratio, as well as its special unbalanced door setup.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Styling
Although the 2019 Veloster is brand new, its styling sticks close to the previous car’s basic percentages and style, 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 in general. The strange passenger-side door setup– with a traditional front-hinged little rear door to make getting in the rear seats much easier– 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 previously. Motorist focused, with an 8-inch “drifting” display screen above the audio controls in the middle of the dash. Infotainment consists of contemporary requirements such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB inputs, and so on. Other high-tech features available on the new Veloster focus on boosted safety, with lane keeping assist, motorist attention warning, automated high beams, blind area and rear cross traffic warnings, and adaptive cruise control.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Engine
Chauffeurs can select between two various 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 automated transmission. While sure to be fuel efficient, we think enthusiasts attracted by the Veloster’s promise of efficiency will be drawn to the 201-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. Offered with either a 6-speed handbook or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, it promises much better velocity than the base engine.
Helping handling is a brand new chassis boosted by additional electronic help. The new Torque Vectoring Control is basic, and uses the stability control system to apply braking force to the inside front wheel in tough cornering maneuvers, thus directing more power to the outside wheel in the turn and enhancing grip. Selectable drive modes change programming for engine, transmission, and steering feel in both turbo and non-turbo models alike. Nevertheless, the Turbo gets an updated suspension and shocks, along with an alternative for 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 “Summer” tires.
N Performance model added
The Veloster N is identified by a special front fascia and grille with dedicated front duct for boosted brake cooling. The appearance 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, unique fascia with incorporated diffuser, and high-flow double exhaust pointers. Inside, Veloster N features front fabric sport seats with aggressive reinforcing, N-design steering 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 handbook transmission with downshift rev-matching capability. The suspension uses multi-mode electronically-controlled shocks with a track-focused N mode readily available. An N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential improves launch performance, lowers acceleration slip understeer and increases grip via exact torque-vectoring.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Price and Release Date
Costs haven’t been announced but are most likely to stay close to the existing model’s, which range in between about $19,000 to a bit more than $27,000 for a totally loaded Turbo. We’ll learn more when the Veloster goes on sale at some point in the second quarter of this year.
