AUSTIN, Texas, May 15, 2018
– Hyundai denounced a all-new Veloster and Veloster Turbo models during a North American International Auto Show in Jan 2018. The uninformed pattern was a collaborative bid of Hyundai designers from Seoul, South Korea and a U.S. pattern core in Irvine, California. The new Veloster facilities a extensive extraneous and interior redesign, powertrain enhancements, and a brood of new and softened infotainment and connectivity features. The 2019 Veloster began prolongation in Mar 2018 in Ulsan, Korea, with U.S. marketplace accessibility in a second entertain of 2018.

“Our new 2019 Veloster represents an even some-more constrained charity for immature and young-at-heart automotive enthusiasts with some-more fluent design, involving dynamics and cutting-edge infotainment features,” pronounced Mike O’Brien, clamp boss of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning during Hyundai Motor America. “When sum with Hyundai’s superb value and efficiency, a new Veloster is certain to attract a on-going new organisation of fan buyers.”


The Veloster merges a pattern interest of a competition coupe with a flexibility of an additional newcomer side back doorway in an asymmetrical two-plus-one pattern for easier rear-seat access. From a front, accessible LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights side a distinguished new grille design. Functional atmosphere fate supplement both a visible pattern evidence and an active aerodynamic function. Hyundai’s signature cascade grille figure has morphed into a strong, three-dimensional pattern that sets a competition coupe apart.

Much of a redesign is subsequent from extended proportions and volume; a new figure clearly conveys focused enterprising performance, even station still. Its position is some-more muscular, with higher-volume fenders and circle arches for a some-more planted appearance. The cover indicate and A-pillar are serve rearward and now bond a hood line and belt line into an integrated, absolute gesture. Available 18-inch amalgamate wheels aggressively fill a wheelhouse openings. Further, a roofline has been lowered for a singular form and a particular coupe-inspired essence. The buffer line is also some-more coupe-like, and a back now has a some-more assertive integrated diffuser design. Available LED taillights assistance finish a back perspective with a high-tech appearance.

Also accessible is a full darkened roof diagnosis for a high-contrast opening appearance. Veloster’s enterprising back pattern has a particular potion induce and center-fascia chrome empty tips, with a singular opening for a 2.0-liter indication and dual-outlets for Turbo and R-Spec models.


The asymmetrical pattern carries by to a interior, with a driver-focused interior blueprint and on a Turbo Ultimate, a resisting tone sourroundings that visually separates a pushing cockpit. Each trim spin has singular colors, materials, and accents, serve differentiating any indication with varying hues and textures.

In serve to these new colors and textures, a new Veloster also offers inexhaustible back load capacity, with 19.9 cubic feet of interior volume behind a 2nd quarrel seat, some-more than Mini Cooper, Mini Clubman and VW Beetle.


The Veloster 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine uses a Atkinson-cycle for higher potency and reduce emissions. The 2.0-liter engine delivers a rise outlay of 147 horsepower during 6,200 rpm (estimated) and limit torque of 132 lb.-ft. during 4,500 rpm (estimated). The Nu 2.0-liter also facilities Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing, an electronic stifle control, non-static initiation and innovative anti-friction coatings. The 2.0-liter engine is joined with possibly a six-speed primer or a six-speed electronically-controlled involuntary transmission. Three driver-selectable modes embody Normal, Sport, and Smart, according to changing motorist preferences.


The 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine produces 201 horsepower during 6,000 rpm (estimated) and 195 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,500-4,500 rpm (estimated). Turbo models beget 201 horsepower on unchanging fuel, that represents a best-in-class specific outlay of 125.6 horsepower per liter. Further, there is an over-boost duty that raises rise torque outlay to 202 lb.-ft. underneath limit acceleration. Engine tuning maximizes low- and mid-range torque, for best acceleration underneath daily pushing conditions.

Veloster Turbo is interconnected with a customary six-speed primer delivery or a seven-speed twin purchase delivery (DCT). For R-Spec primer delivery models, a BM Racing® competition shifter will also be practical (later availability). Both transmissions were grown in-house by Hyundai.

For Turbo models, motorist welfare for Active Engine Sound is also available.


All Veloster models offer Torque Vectoring Control (TVC). This active cornering underline utilizing capabilities from a Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and powertrain control systems, allows Veloster to urge enterprising cornering during some-more eager driving. TVC uses wheel-speed sensors joined with ESC algorithms to request accurate braking force to a inside front circle during enterprising cornering. This active braking redirects energy to a outward front circle in a turn, shortening wheelspin for extended cornering hold and corner-exit acceleration. Overall, this provides Veloster drivers with an incremental domain of cornering pointing during eager driving.         

Further, Veloster Turbo facilities a quicker-ratio steering shelve and a revised steering calibration to match, that gives drivers accurate cornering, feedback and control.


Hyundai’s EcoShift DCT takes a advantages of a primer transmission, such as low fuel consumption, and blends these with involuntary delivery benefits, such as high comfort levels and pushing ease.

Three additional systems also implement a front-view camera to boost reserve and convenience: Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), High Beam Assist (HBA) for a accessible LED headlights, and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). Lane Keep Assist is a customary reserve underline for 2019 Veloster.

By intuiting highway markings, LKA helps to forestall random line depart by assisting to drive a automobile as required. HBA automatically controls a high lamp headlights by dimming and educational them automatically as indispensable with coming traffic, while a Driver Attention Warning complement monitors a spectrum of driver-related characteristics to detect motorist tired or drifting driving.

Veloster radar systems also support with a accessible Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) to detect coming vehicles from a back that might be vaporous from perspective and warning a motorist of their participation during line changes. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collison Warning (RCCW) detects when another automobile might have entered a car’s rearward path, such as when subsidy out of a parking spot, and provides a motorist alert. Veloster Turbo also offers accessible Smart Cruise Control for additional motorist convenience.

All Velosters underline a rearview camera with enterprising discipline propitious to all models for higher parking visibility. Velosters have an well-developed spin of customary reserve facilities for a sporty coupe shred highlighted by a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, that optimally manages ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and a Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS).

VSM works to control twin effects. The initial is when a motorist accelerates or brakes on a split-mu aspect (slippery on one side, dry cement on a other) and a automobile wants to lift in one direction. VSM detects this condition and sends a vigilance to a MDPS to request steering support to opposite this force. VSM counters a lift and automatically provides counter-steering. VSM reacts a same approach during remarkable line changes or quick cornering.

All Velosters underline 6 airbags—including twin front, front seat-mounted side-impact, and front and back side screen airbags. The Veloster braking package includes four-wheel front brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake Assist, that provides limit braking force when a panic stop is detected, and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), to automatically adjust a braking force to front and back axles formed on automobile loading conditions.
