The all-new 2019 Hyundai Veloster and Veloster Turbo made their world debuts at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Quickly identifiable as the quirky coupe, however with all-new sheetmetal, interior, and underpinnings, the Veloster continues with its polarizing styling, good fun-to-dollar ratio, as well as its unique asymmetrical door setup.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Styling
Although the 2019 Veloster is brand new, its styling sticks near to the previous car’s basic proportions and style, and you ‘d never ever know 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 peculiar passenger-side door configuration– with a traditional front-hinged small rear door to make getting in the rear seats simpler– is as much a styling signature of the little hatchback as anything, and remains a love-it-or-leave-it choice.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Interior
Inside the brand-new Veloster is a much nicer interior than previously. Chauffeur focused, with an 8-inch “drifting” display above the audio controls in the middle of the dash. Infotainment consists of modern-day necessities such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB inputs, and so on. Other state-of-the-art features offered on the new Veloster concentrate on improved safety, with lane keeping assist, driver attention caution, automatic high beams, blind spot and rear cross traffic warnings, and adaptive cruise control.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Engine
Motorists can select between 2 various engines to put under the hood. Standard is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 147 horsepower, 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 guarantee of efficiency will be drawn to the 201-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. Available with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automated, it promises much better acceleration than the base engine.
Helping handling is a brand new chassis enhanced by additional electronic help. The brand-new Torque Vectoring Control is basic, and utilizes the stability control system to use braking force to the within front wheel in hard cornering maneuvers, thus directing more power to the outdoors wheel in the turn and boosting 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 upgraded suspension and shocks, as well as an alternative for 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 “Summer” tires.
N Performance model included
The Veloster N is identified by an exclusive front fascia and grille with dedicated front air ducts for boosted brake cooling. The appearance is continued with side rocker sills and available light-weight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke style. The rear 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 wheel, shift knob, sill plates, and instrument cluster. Interior details are accentuated by an N performance blue accent style.
The Veloster N is geared up with a bigger 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making an estimated 275 horse power and up to 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 readily available. An N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential enhances launch performance, lowers velocity slip understeer and increases grip by means of exact torque-vectoring.
