2019 Veloster Revealed


At the North American International Auto Show, Hyundai officially unveiled the 2019 Veloster, and the Veloster Turbo. This reveal happened in January of 2018, and it shows off the fresh design that was made with the efforts of designers in both Irvine, California, and Seoul, South Korea. The 2019 Veloster gives you powertrain enhancements, a comprehensive redesign of the exterior and interior, along with connectivity features and an improved infotainment system. This is a compelling offering which fits both the young, and the young-at-heart. The design is expressive, and dynamic, and melds together perfectly with cutting-edge features. The Veloster is the perfect opportunity to join the Hyundai family and get a vehicle that isn't afraid to be different. For more information continue reading down below.

What is so unique about the design elements?

Firstly, the Veloster manages to perfectly incorporate a sport coupe with the versatility of a passenger side rear door that allows for easy access to the rear seats. That means that you get the sleek look you're looking for, with the ability to get in and out of the back much easier. The other thing you'll notice immediately is the front, which boasts a new grille design, available LED headlights, and even LED Daytime Running Lights that flank that new design. There are even functional air curtains that are perfect for aerodynamics, and the visual design. The biggest changes happened with the enhancement of volume and proportions, which can be seen in the new shape and stance. The A-pillar and cowl point have been moved further towards the rear, which is connected to the hood line in order to create a powerful gesture. Even the roofline has been changed, as it is now lowered to create a more coupe-inspired design, along with producing a more unique profile. 

What engines are available with the Veloster?

The base engine used in the Veloster is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that can deliver 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. This engine uses the Atkinson-cycle which helps to lower emissions, and create superior efficiency. That isn't the only perk of this 2.0-liter. You'll also find other features like an electronic throttle control, variable induction, innovative anti-friction coatings, and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing. As for transmissions, this engine can be paired with a six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission, or a six-speed manual. There are even three driver-selectable modes! These include Normal, Sport, and Smart. The other engine is a turbocharged 1.6-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder, which creates 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. That torque output can be raised to 202 pound-feet of torque with the overboost function. This engine works with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The driver-selectable modes are also available with this engine. 

What are the advanced safety features in the Veloster?

There are many advanced safety features that have been integrated into the 2019 Hyundai Veloster. Some of these features include Lane Keep Assist, High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Other features you'll find include a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Vehicle Stability Management, and Electronic Stability Control,. No vehicle would be complete without airbags, and every Veloster comes with six airbags, including front seat-mounted side-impact, dual front, and front and rear side curtain.
