The all-new 2019 Hyundai Veloster has leaked after photographers caught it completely uncovered filming a commercial.
The next-generation Veloster will ride on a slightly lengthened version of the front-wheel drive platform that underpins the current Elantra. These photos confirm it will also retain its asymmetrical bodystyle, which features a regular, single door on the driver’s side and two doors on the other side. This ‘Turbo’ model is also nicely dressed up with black trim, black wheels, a center-exit dual exhaust and a subtle rear diffuser. Hyundai’s single-frame corporate grille, currently seen on the Elantra and other vehicles, has also been implemented.
A range of turbocharged and naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines is expected to be on offer. We’re expecting Hyundai’s turbocharged 1.6-liter engine to serve in the car, or perhaps its 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine, but the automaker could have some surprises up its sleeve. There’s also an N performance variant rumored to arrive, which could use the i30 N’s 271 horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, along with its six-speed manual transmission.
Look for the new 2019 Hyundai Veloster to debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
