2019 Hyundai Veloster – Hyundai’s second-generation Veloster sedan took the least camouflage we’ve seen. In fact, this particular red Veloster, all covered with a glossy and contrasting black roof, black wheels and a full complement of aero addenda, seems to carry no visible camouflage for her late-night photo shoot.
The new 2019 Hyundai Veloster retains the car’s two-and-a-popular body design, along with an extra straight side door for easy access to the small car. The exterior of the Veloster is substantially the same as that of the outgoing model, but there are significant differences in the details. The air curtains on the front fascia are more pronounced and, according to Hyundai, they are functional. The grille is also different, ranging from the cascade of the old Hyundai to a mesh for the new generation.
Larger wings and a more taut look have also put this new Veloster apart from its previous generation. The roofline of the New 2019 Hyundai Veloster is also lower than that of its predecessor and that is further accentuated by the same belt line that starts at the front fenders and moves towards the rear fender bolsters. The rear wing of the diffuser is also more pronounced and becomes even more special for the Turbo and N variants. Inside, the Hyundai Veloster 2019 offers unique color combinations and materials for every level of finish. Much of the interior design of the Veloster is inspired by the Hyundai Elantra GT, with a large 7.0-inch widescreen display, but an 8.0-inch screen is optional crowning the center console and the healthy use of trim black piano.
Hyundai has largely adopted the two standard engines of the Veloster with its new design. The 2.0-liter base has more horsepower of 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque versus 132 hp and 120 lb-ft in the 2018 model and appeared in the 2017 Elantra. The 1.6-liter Veloster Turbo is a pure carryover, with the same 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque as all other vehicles with this engine. The six-speed manuals are standard with both engines, while the 2.0-liter uses a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Veloster Turbo continues to offer a 7-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission.
At the top end, the new 2019 Hyundai Veloster is equipped with a 275-lb and 260-lb-ft turbo-4 coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. Sport-aware exhaust system “cracks” in more aggressive driving
The night photo shoot where we caught this Veloster came and went almost certainly for the production of marketing material, indicating that Hyundai is about ready to officially lift the Veloster veil. It’s likely we’ll see it this month at the Detroit auto show, if not at the Chicago auto show in February, which Hyundai used for Veloster’s first revelations. Prices will likely be close to current prices for the 2017 model (the 2018 model year was skipped), for $ 18,895 for the base car and $ 23,485 for the Turbo. Figure another big three or four to enter an N. We would be surprised if the Veloster is not in dealerships in the spring.
