Pictured: Veloster Turbo R-Spec 3dr Coupe
The Veloster merges the design appeal of a sport coupe with the versatility of an additional passenger side rear door in an asymmetrical two-plus-one configuration for easier rear-seat access.
From the front, available LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights flank a striking new grille design. Functional air curtains add both a visual design cue and an active aerodynamic function. Hyundai's signature cascade grille shape has morphed into a strong, three-dimensional design that sets the sport coupe apart.
Much of the 2019 redesign is derived from enhanced proportions and volume; the new shape clearly conveys focused dynamic performance, even standing still. Its stance is more muscular, with higher-volume fenders and wheel arches for a more planted appearance. Also available is a full darkened roof treatment for a high-contrast performance appearance.
The Veloster 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine uses the Atkinson-cycle for superior efficiency and lower emissions. The 2.0-liter engine delivers a peak output of 147 horsepower and maximum torque of 132 lb.-ft. The 2.0-liter engine is coupled with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission. Three driver-selectable modes include Normal, Sport, and Smart, according to changing driver preferences.
The 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Veloster Turbo is paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The Veloster Turbo seven-speed dual-clutch transmission features steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters and SHIFTRONIC transmission gear control.
All Veloster models offer Torque Vectoring Control. This active cornering feature utilizing capabilities from the Electronic Stability Control and powertrain control systems, allows Veloster to improve dynamic cornering during more enthusiastic driving.
