All-New 2019 Hyundai Veloster & Veloster Turbo

2019 Hyundai Veloster 2.0 Premium

There’s growing excitement around the revamp of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster and its new design. 2019 models will keep the clever third-door configuration as well as the helpful hatchback, but they have taken on an even sportier look. Bigger and more high tech, the car serves its owner better.

Whats New on the Exterior?

A new three-dimensional grille is flanked by LED daytime running lights and available LED headlights. Active aerodynamic features include the front functional air curtains and the rear integrated diffuser. High-volume fenders and wheel arches take it up while the roofline seems to lower it. The result is an even more coupe-like appearance with a unique profile. Shoppers can give their Veloster a high-contrast performance appearance by choosing the darkened roof treatment.

This Veloster is bigger than before, and that means more space for passengers and cargo. The hatch area has grown to 19.9 cubic feet. This makes it bigger than the VW Beetle or Mini Cooper.

New Highlights Enrich The Interior

Unique design features continue in the cabin. The asymmetrical layout is geared toward the driver’s cockpit. If you choose the Turbo Ultimate, the color scheme adds to the cockpit separation by providing a color contrast. Hyundai has expanded the fun of choosing your Veloster by providing unique accents and colors for each trim level. Differing materials enrich the variations in textures and hues. Among the sporty touches, you’ll find a B&M Racing sport shifter on the Turbo R-Spec.

What Is the Veloster Capable of?

Almost as important as the sporty looks, there’s the matter of its capability. Small and lithe, the car makes much out of its Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine. The top output is 147 horsepower with a choice of Normal, Sport or Smart driving modes. Hyundai uses innovative anti-friction coatings to make the engine more durable and more capable.

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Ultimate

The Veloster Turbo is even speedier. This Hyundai sports car leads the way with a best-in-class output of 125.6 horsepower per liter. The total output is a souped-up 201 horsepower. At low revs, the car can muster 195 lb-ft of torque. An over-boost function helps it spit out 202 lb-ft when the driver is starting the 0-60 mph sprint onto the highway.

The regular engine has a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The Turbo automatic is a seven-speed Dual Clutch. Shiftronic gear control is extremely precise and can be altered with the driver select mode system. The Smart mode recognizes spirited or economical driving and alters the engine’s output to match the driver’s needs.

How Does it Handle with this Increased Speed?

Speedier handling is easier with the Hyundai torque vectoring control system. It uses Electronic Stability Control functions and powertrain functions to control cornering during spirited driving. For even more fun, the Veloster Turbo driver enjoys more control thanks to a quicker-ratio steering rack.

Which Modern Safety Innovations are Included in the Veloster?

Safety goes high-tech in the new Veloster. A Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist is standard. This front-facing camera system watches for collision dangers and may trigger automatic braking to reduce or stop impact. The camera also monitors the road as part of the standard Lane Keeping Assist. Drivers will appreciate a Driver Attention Warning and an available Blind Spot Collision Warning. A rearview camera can be augmented by a Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. Hyundai still has its class-leading warranty to add peace of mind to this high tech package.
