DETROIT—Hyundai took the wraps off a redesigned version of its unconventional compact sporty hatchback at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2019 Veloster retains the model’s novel asymmetrical door configuration (one on the driver’s side, and two on the passenger side for easier access to the back seat), but gains all-new styling inside and out, updated powertrains, and a host of new technology features. Hyundai is also using the new Veloster as the inaugural vehicle of a planned “N” lineup of high-performance Hyundais.
Hyundai revealed a pair of 2016 sporty compact models—the Veloster Rally Edition and the Elantra GT hatchback—at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.
The new-for-2013 Veloster Turbo adds some much-needed horsepower to the flashy-but-slow base Veloster, Hyundai’s genre-bending compact hatchback that debuted for 2012. As is customary for performance variants of regular-line vehicles, the Veloster Turbo gets a few exclusive appearance features that give it a racier look than its naturally aspirated sibling. Up front is a unique fascia with a larger grille and round fog lights, along with standard projector-beam headlights with LED accents. The rocker panels sport “ground effects” side sills, and the Turbo-exclusive rearview mirrors have integral LED turn-signal indicators. A roof-mounted body-color spoiler, LED taillights, and unique rear fascia with a diffuser and oversize exhaust tips bring up the rear.
