The new look of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster hatchback was the result of joint efforts of design centers in Seoul (Korea) and Irvine (California, USA). The front has new led headlights, a corporate-style false radiator and an upgraded bumper with side sections of air ducts.
The sides of the body of the Veloster became more muscular, in parallel getting developed wings. The profile has acquired the most close to the dome-like proportions with the front pillars shifted back as much as possible, a low roof dome and a lean stern.
The hatchback’s stern, regardless of its design, looks very aggressive due to a powerful diffuser with an exhaust pipe in the center of it. The base Hyundai Veloster with a 2.0-liter “atmospheric” tip single trapezoid shape.
The Hyundai Veloster has an exclusive exterior design with red decor elements. Bright red accents are placed at the front, on the door sills and in the rear of the body. The brake calipers are painted in the same color.
The interior of the new Hyundai Veloster has been completely revised and now bears little resemblance to the interior of its predecessor. Only the 2+2 boarding formula remains unchanged, meaning that there is still room for only two passengers in the back row. Except that they now have a ceiling above their heads, not the glass of the trunk door.
There is enough legroom and height in the rear for adult passengers, but please note that there are only two seat belts in the back of the seats – this is a four-seat hatch. While most of the competitors are declared as five-seaters.
The initial configuration of the hatchback includes halogen headlights, a media system with a 7-inch display (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay interfaces are supported), a rear-view camera, an automatic braking system for detecting obstacles, and six airbags.
The Veloster version includes raised sports seats, a steering wheel with driving mode control buttons, and an instrument cluster with the speedometer and tachometer arrows lowered vertically down. The symbolism is applied to the steering wheel rim, the gearbox handle and some other elements of the interior.
The standard audio system sounds great and there are no special complaints about it.
Access to the luggage compartment of the Velosteris still possible through a small opening, the lower edge of which is at a decent height. However, the cargo compartment itself has significantly increased its capacity and is now ready to accept 564 liters instead of the previous 424 liters. The rear seats are folded in the proportion of 40/60, but there is no question of a flat loading platform, by itself, the step is palpable.
The basic Hyundai Veloster 2019 getsthe 2.0-liter atmospheric engine of the Nu family (147 HP, 179 Nm) and two variants of boxes – 6MKPP and 6AKPP.
