The all-new 2019 Hyundai Veloster has debuted at the Detroit Auto Show. Even though the 2019 Veloster is new from the ground up, the good news is that it keeps its quirky asymmetrical two-plus-one door bodystyle.
The 2019 Veloster is designed to appeal to a younger audience or the young-at-heart with its sport coupe-like design and the added versatility of the additional door on the passenger side. The overall shape of the 2019 Veloster doesn’t move too far from the original, with the biggest changes being the addition of Hyundai’s new cascade grille, while the rear looks more sculpted and muscular.
Inside, the 2019 Veloster has a driver focused interior layout, which is further emphasized with the Turbo Ultimate model, which features a contrasting color environment that visually separates the driving cockpit. The interior is full of new tech features, like Qi wireless charging, an eight-inch display, HD Radio, and “Eyes Free” Apple Siri integration.
Under the hood the 2019 Veloster will be powered by a standard 2.0L four-cylinder with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft. of torque, that can be mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Veloster Turbo is powered by a more fun turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder that generates 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. The Veloster Turbo can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch transmission. All Veloster models offer Torque Vectoring Control.
The 2019 Veloster will arrive in the second quarter of 2018.
“Our new 2019 Veloster represents an even more compelling offering for young and young-at-heart automotive enthusiasts with more expressive design, involving dynamics and cutting-edge infotainment features,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning at Hyundai Motor America.
