Hyundai engineers are out testing prototypes for a brand-new generation of the Veloster. The models expose that the redesigned Veloster keeps the basic shape of the existing model, consisting of the unique three-doors-and-hatch setup. (There’s a single door on the motorist’s side and 2 on the other).
2019 Hyundai Veloster Design
Initially look, it looks very much like the existing model, however closer examination reveals some distinctions. In advance, the hood looks lower, and it tapers down to what appears to be an exaggerated variation of the “waterfall grille” Hyundai has executed on the Elantra GT, and brand-new Sonata. The headlights look slimmer, and there appear to be less busy, “wacky” lines.
Moving backwards, we find the same asymmetric door layout including one door on the left, and 2 on the right. On the ideal side, the rear door manage is still tucked in the corner of the window. The glass location on the right also appears a bit bigger thanks to a lower edge that stays lower for longer.
From previous test mules, we know that the revamped Veloster has a somewhat longer wheelbase than the existing model, which must result in more space inside. The new car likewise looks to be much sportier thanks to a lower, more structured profile.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Engine
In the powertrain department, the base choice will likely be a version of the 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-4 discovered in the existing Veloster Turbo, where it delivers 201 horse power. Above this might be a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 being developed by the Hyundai N efficiency division. The engine makes its debut this year in an i30 N model to be offered overseas, and in its tamest setting must deliver around 246 hp. While the United States will lose out on the i30 N, there’s an opportunity we see a Veloster N rather.
2019 Hyundai Veloster Release Date
Hyundai will take the wraps off its upgraded Veloster in late 2017 or early the following year. Sales won’t start until 2018, with the car likely getting here as a 2019 model.
