Young people likes sports coupe, and one like that is Hyundai Veloster. Since 2011, it has very successful sale numbers on the North America market. In meantime, Veloster has gone through a few editions and the last one is Veloster Rally Edition for 2016. According to spy photos which are made in summer 2016, you can expect new 2019 Hyundai Veloster. That’s right; we talk about the second generation of the coupe which brings new design, mechanical elements, and engine upgrades. Manufacturer jealously keeps information till the premiere, but images which we obtained reveal some details. Further information is subject to speculation.
If you just look deeper at the previous generation you can notice that is built on the FS platform. What is that different to the second generation? First of all, the wheelbase is longer than earlier. The Hyundai might drop three-door in favor of two-door layout. But we won’t rule out three doors at this stage. Also, we leave the possibility of the two-door layout. All in all, new things will do 2019 Veloster to be much better from competition.
2019 Hyundai Veloster – Body Changes
The evaluative changes on the body will have to impact its exterior design and drive performances. First “invade the eye” change is related to the front wheel arches which will be stretched. But that is not all because headlights are getting new structure and technology. On the rear end, you can notice the new position of exhaust pipes in the corners of the rear bumper. Earlier it was in the center. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster will retain asymmetrical door configuration where the larger one is on the driver side. In addition, the aggressive design comes with some aerodynamic elements and it serves as a replacement for ex Hyundai Genesis coupe. It now has an own brand.
2019 Hyundai Veloster – Engine
Unlike the first generation which just had 1.6-liter four cylinder engine, the next generation comes with additional turbo 2.0-liter engine. The second option produces around 300 horsepower and it is specially developed for N range of cars. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster offers three different gearboxes such as six-speed manual or automatic and seven-speed automatic transmission. Certainly, fuel consumption figures will be better than current. But at this moment we don’t have precise numbers.
2019 Hyundai Veloster – Safety Features
The design of the interior is not yet available. We think that there will be new technologies and devices like the newest version of telematics. Furthermore, its BlueLink system is comparable with competition. The carmaker will pay attention to safety features and improvement of these systems. Some of them are automatic crash notification, vehicle diagnostics, and remote control. To sum it up, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster enables easier management.
2019 Hyundai Veloster – Price
The price of this future model is unknown. But we assume that will be slightly higher than now. Potential customers will be able to purchase this car in the second half of 2018.
