Hyundai Veloster Teasers Show What We Already Know

Hyundai has just dropped a number of teaser images of the all-new Veloster prior to the vehicle’s global debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

The revealing teaser images show off the front, rear, and both sides of the car and things certainly look good, thanks to design elements borrowed from the latest-generation i30. The front looks particularly impressive with a gaping wide grille, aggressive headlights with LED daytime running lights, and a tapered bumper.

Similarly, the rear is a significant step on from the current model thanks to different taillights, a small roof spoiler, twin-central tailpipes, and a new bumper. The sides reveal that the latest-gen Veloster will retain the 2+1 door layout as the current model.

As for the cabin, a design sketch published by the South Korean carmaker reveals a three-spoke steering wheel, white and red color palette, and some sporty touches.

Even without these teasers, we’ve known for the past few weeks what the new Veloster would look like thanks to spy shots of the car without a hint of camouflage.

Powering the entry-level Veloster will probably be the 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four of the current Veloster Turbo. A more potent Veloster N will then be created, using the same 2.0-liter turbo four as the i30 N and delivering the same 271 hp.

    It looks pretty cool.

    • Bo Hanan

      It does indeed.

  • I wonder if Veloster N does exist, how it will sit with i30N.

    • AxlRock

      Perhaps like a funkier and less practical sibling meant for single people, to a (comparatively) staid looking i30n family hatch?

      • Agree, sort of like Scirocco and Golf. Still I hope Albert and his team manage to improve Veloster dynamics.

        • Jason Miller

          It has moved to the current Elantra platform and therefore should have the multi-link rear suspension (at least on Sport, N models).

          • bd

            Yep, should be just as good (if not better) than the i30N.

  • SteersUright

    Would love to see a proper performance variant.

    • Jason Miller

      N is coming.

  • Jason Miller

    I doubt the 1.6L Turbo will be the base engine. I expect a 2.0L base, 1.6L Sport and then the 2.0L N.

  • john1168

    Looks great so far. I hope they improve the dct. I’ve read in a few places that the current one isn’t that great.

  • DMax

    Those side creases design taken straight from Lada Vesta. Didn’t think there would come a day when Lada’s design would be copied.

  • smartacus

    i’ve been saying for years
    the Veloster needs a 2.0t

    i even wrote a comment here in 2014
    saying the Veloster needs 245-271HP
