Hyundai Continues To Tease The Veloster Ahead Of Its Debut In Detroit

Spy photographers recently caught the 2019 Hyundai Veloster undisguised but that hasn’t stopped the company from releasing a new teaser video for the redesigned hatchback.

In the Christmas-themed clip, we can see the all-new Veloster will have an evolutionary design with a rakish windscreen, muscular wheel arches, and a long sloping roof which meets a tailgate-mounted spoiler. The undisguised photos also revealed the model will have a more prominent grille, a center-mounted dual exhaust system, and a sporty rear diffuser.

Hyundai has been relatively tight-lipped about the model but the company has already confirmed the Veloster will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show and offered with two turbocharged engines that have displacements of 1.4- and 1.6-liters. A six-speed manual transmission will be offered with the latter engine while both can be equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Hyundai also has plans for a high-performance Veloster N and it should have at least 246 hp (183 kW).

In South Korea, the model will be offered with an assortment of high-tech features including a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system. The car will also offer high beam assist and a lane departure warning system.

    Doesn’t look any different than the current one.

    Could be a Veloster. Or it could be a 2dr Urus.

  • Six_Tymes

    It better review impressive. because that video is boasting.

  • Hopefully Albert Bierrman and his team can fix Veloster Achilles heel. The engine and suspension.

    • Six Thousand Times

      That’s like an Achilles leg and arm.

    • JR Glide

      You forgot chassis & transmission… ignorant boy.

      • Calling people name makes you feel better about yourself does it? 🙂

      Basically will be getting the same chassis and suspension tuning as the i30.

      That goes for the N version of the Veloster (which should be as good as, if not better than, the i30N).

  • MarketAndChurch

    Whenever Ford and Hyundai are about to truly diverge into super unique design philosophies, this and the Focus come out.

  • fabri99

    I’ve always found the idea behind the Veloster very interesting. The execution though always left me a bit…meh. While the previous generation looked extremely quirky, this new model doesn’t look good at all. Hopefully official photos (and the car in the metal) will do it justice. I wouldn’t want it to be a huge flop once again.

  • Astonman

    The car looks like the front end is sitting higher than the rear. Looks awkward.
