Following the unveiling of the 2019 Veloster and Veloster N, Hyundai has announced both models are headed to Forza Motorsport 7.

While the cars won’t go on sale in the United States until later this year, fans will have a chance to get behind the wheel tomorrow as part of a free downloadable content pack. Hyundai says the cars have been rendered in exacting detail and players can explore the upcoming hatchback as well as customize the vehicle with new wheels as well as various performance upgrades.

In the future, Forza Motorsport 7 players can expect additional Veloster content including “in-game opportunities such as Rivals events.”

Hyundai Motor America chief marketing officer Dean Evans said, “It’s thrilling to collaborate with Microsoft and Turn 10 again to put the next-gen Veloster in Forza Motorsport 7.” He went on to say the game has a “vibrant and active community of auto enthusiasts” and noted this “diverse group is reflective of the customers we want to reach with Veloster, and we’re excited to put them behind the wheel, starting tomorrow.”

As a refresher, the 2019 Veloster will be available with three engines that have outputs ranging from 147 hp (109 kW) to 275 hp (205 kW).

This 2019 Hyundai Veloster Hot Rod Will Star In Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ 15

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster, Movie Cars, new cars, Reports on 01 15th, 2018


No, it’s not a joke. The pictured modified version of the second-generation Hyundai Veloster will be introduced to the big screen later this year, as part of a global marketing initiative.

According to the Korean brand, the 2019 Veloster in hot rod attire will be featured in “a hot pursuit” scene of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp, which highlights its “capabilities in serving as the ultimate escape vehicle”, along with its “speed and handling”.

Finished in purple and adorned with yellow and orange flames, the tuned Veloster that would feel right at home at SEMA has a few other mods that make it instantly noticeable, such as the hood scoop, side exhaust pipes, large rear wing, and chunky tires.

The sequel of the 2015 ‘Ant-Man’ movie is scheduled to premiere on July 6 at cinemas across the US, and it will mark the Hollywood debut of other Hyundai vehicles, whose names haven’t been released yet.

“The Veloster totally exemplifies the energetic, no-holds-barred attitude that accompanies this franchise, and we’re going to have a lot of fun working with Hyundai to see how we can share that mindset with fans all around the world”, commented Marvel’s SVP of Global Partnership and Marketing, Mindy Hamilton.

Prior to its movie debut, Hyundai will start producing the new generation Veloster in March, in their homeland, with the first cars expected to arrive on our shores in the second quarter of the year.

Subsequently, the performance-oriented N version that adds a host of visual and technical upgrades, including a 275hp 2.0-liter four-banger, will be put together from September, and the first units will be shipped to the US before the end of 2018.

New Hyundai Veloster N Focuses On Ford’s ST With 275 Horses 15

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Detroit-Auto-Show, featured, Galleries, Hyundai, Hyundai N, Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Videos, new cars, video on 01 15th, 2018


The second product coming from Hyundai N, after the i30 N, is the performance variant of the new Veloster that was presented today at the Detroit Auto Show.

It uses the same engine as the hot hatch, a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that boasts 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet (353Nm) of torque, and works together with a six-speed stick shift.

Hyundai haven’t released any performance specs yet, but it’s clear that the new Veloster N should come pretty close to the i30 N’s 0-62mph (100km/h), which takes 6.1sec in its range-topping form.

The new Hyundai Veloster N should be pretty fun to drive on a twisty road, as it gets optimized geometry for linear torque build up and corner-exit precision, decreased roll angle, unobtrusive rear strut brace that reinforces the rear multi-link suspension mounting points, and a special track-focused N driving mode.

An electronically controlled limited-slip differential improves the grip furthermore, whereas stopping power comes from 13-inch front and 11.8-inch rear brake discs, with 13.6-inch front and 12.4-inch rear ones available.

Looking at the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N from the outside reveals chunkier front and rear bumpers, different grille and side skirts, roof-mounted spoiler, and rear diffuser that houses the dual exhaust pipes.

Buyers will be able to choose between four exterior colors in the United States, called Ultra Black, Chalk White, Racing Red, and N-exclusive Performance Blue, alongside 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 225/40 Michelin Pilot SuperSport or 234/35 Pirelli P-Zero rubber, respectively.

Exclusive front sport seats, special steering wheel and shift knob, N-logo door sill plates, N-design instrument cluster, and blue accent theme remind users of the car’s sporty character inside.

Hyundai will launch the 2019 Veloster N in the United States in the fourth quarter of the year, and all cars will be assembled in Ulsan, Korea, from September 2018.

All-New Hyundai Veloster Is Still Quirky And That’s Good [93 Pics+Video] 15
Jan
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Detroit-Auto-Show, featured, Galleries, Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Videos, new cars, video on 01 15th, 2018


Hyundai revealed the new generation of the Veloster at the Detroit Auto Show, bringing a fresh design to match its quirky bodystyle.

The new Hyundai Veloster feature the same, two-plus-one configuration known from its predecessor, having an additional passenger rear door for easier rear-seat access. The front end is dominated by the bold new grille design while the rear end features a big diffuser with twin tailpipes coming out of the middle.

Base Veloster models will be available with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 147hp and 132lb-ft of torque that’s paired to either a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission.

Go for the faster Veloster Turbo and then you get a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 201hp and 195lb-ft of torque. There’s an overboost function too, which raised peak torque to 202lb-ft. Customers will be able to choose between a manual six-speed or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

All models of the new Hyundai Veloster come with Torque Vectoring Control, which operates through the electronic stability control and wheel-speed sensors to apply precise braking in order to improve handling.

Turbo models also get a quicker-ratio steering rack with revised calibration to match the higher performance. The new Veloster Turbo also gets a 24mm front stabilizer bar with the rear multilink suspension featuring a 19mm stabilizer bar to further control body roll.

The range of driver-assist systems includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist for the available LED headlights, and Driver Attention Warning.

Inside, the new Hyundai Veloster comes with an eight-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, rearview camera, wireless charging for mobile devices, a head-up display and the company’s Blue Link connected services.

Production of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster begins this March in Korea, with the first US-spec cars to become available during the second quarter of 2018.

Hello, Are You The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N? 15
Jan
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Detroit-Auto-Show, Hyundai, Hyundai Scoops, Hyundai Veloster, Scoops on 01 15th, 2018


Hyundai has been steadily teasing us with preview images for the forthcoming all-new Veloster, scheduled for debut at the Detroit Auto Show this week. But it looks like it’s already leaked out… again.

Korean site TopRider (sent to our attention by tipster GT) appears to not only have a clear – if somewhat low-res – image of the standard Veloster, in red with a black roof, but a shot of the high-performance Veloster N as well.

The letter N, for those who haven’t been following, is the moniker Hyundai is applying to its own performance line, directed by former BMW M chief engineer Albert Biermann. The sub-brand has already yielded the i30 N hot hatch for the European market, but is working on a heated-up version of the Veloster for the North American market as well.

Expect the same 2.0-liter turbo four to make the transition from one to the other, churning out between 246 and 271 horsepower – along with other performance enhancements.

Those amber side-markers in the corners of the headlights tell us these images could portray that US version, but we’ll find out one way or another tomorrow when Hyundai takes the wraps off the new sport hatch at Detroit’s Cobo Center – so watch this space.

Hyundai Thinks You Haven’t Seen The 2019 Veloster, So It’s Still Teasing It 11
Jan
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Detroit-Auto-Show, Film, Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Videos, video on 01 11th, 2018


The North American International Auto Show is just days away and Hyundai has released a new teaser video of the 2019 Veloster.

While we’ve already seen the model undisguised, the latest clip gives us a pretty good glimpse at the upcoming hatchback. As you can see, the car will have an aggressive front fascia with a prominent grille, large air intakes, and LED-infused headlights.

Moving further back, there’s a rakish windscreen and flowing bodywork. Designers also installed a center-mounted dual exhaust system, an aggressive rear diffuser, and slender taillights.

The sporty styling will continue in the cabin as a previous sketch suggested the model will have an asymmetrical dashboard with a ‘floating’ infotainment system. We can also expect a stylish steering wheel, driver-focused controls, and unique switchgear.

Hyundai has already confirmed the Veloster will be offered with two turbocharged engines that have displacements of 1.4- and 1.6-liters. Depending on which engine is selected, it can be paired to either a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox or a six-speed manual transmission.

The redesigned model is also slated to offer several high-tech features including a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system. Other notable options will include high beam assist and a lane departure warning system.

Hyundai Veloster Teasers Show What We Already Know 8
Jan
Posted by Brad Anderson in Detroit-Auto-Show, Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster, Reports on 01 8th, 2018


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.

Spy photographers recently caught the 2019 Hyundai Veloster undisguised but that hasn’t stopped the company from releasing a new teaser video for the redesigned hatchback.

In the Christmas-themed clip, we can see the all-new Veloster will have an evolutionary design with a rakish windscreen, muscular wheel arches, and a long sloping roof which meets a tailgate-mounted spoiler. The undisguised photos also revealed the model will have a more prominent grille, a center-mounted dual exhaust system, and a sporty rear diffuser.

Hyundai has been relatively tight-lipped about the model but the company has already confirmed the Veloster will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show and offered with two turbocharged engines that have displacements of 1.4- and 1.6-liters. A six-speed manual transmission will be offered with the latter engine while both can be equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Hyundai also has plans for a high-performance Veloster N and it should have at least 246 hp (183 kW).

In South Korea, the model will be offered with an assortment of high-tech features including a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system. The car will also offer high beam assist and a lane departure warning system.

Hyundai Previews New Veloster With Energetic Teaser 20

Posted by Brad Anderson in Detroit-Auto-Show, Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai Videos, Reports, video on 12 20th, 2017


Our eagle-eyed spy photographers recently snapped the next-generation Veloster without a hint of camouflage, and now, the South Korean firm has dropped an energetic teaser video of the car.

Dubbed ‘Live Loud’, the teaser shows the Veloster being put its paces while finished in a brightly-colored paint scheme. Additionally, the video highlights some key design elements of the car, including its shark fin antenna, dual central tailpipes, and prominent rear diffuser. We’re even offered a chance to hear the engine in action and to our surprise, it sounds quite good.

Hyundai has yet to say what will power the all-new Veloster but our sources suggested that it will be sold with two different turbocharged engines, displacing 1.4-liters and 1.6-liters respectively and joined by seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions as standard. In news that should excite enthusiasts, a manual ‘box is on the cards for the 1.6-liter.

Not long after the standard Veloster hits showroom floors, Hyundai will unveil the Veloster N variant, likely powered by the same 271 hp, 2.0-liter turbo four as the i30 N.

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster will premiere at next month’s Detroit Auto Show. In the meantime, enjoy the video below and keep your eyes peeled for more teasers and details of the car.

This Is The All-New 2019 Hyundai Veloster! 18
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Detroit-Auto-Show, featured, Hyundai, Hyundai Scoops, Hyundai Veloster, Scoops, Top 5 on 12 18th, 2017


While it will retain the first-generation model’s overall shape, the all-new Hyundai Veloster is clearly trying to look slightly more aggressive and less quirky.

Ever since we saw it rocking that colorful camo back in November, we immediately noticed the new grille, the different LED DRLs and even a new bumper design with vertical air intakes.

Now, since we can look at it without anything distracting us from its design, we can back up those impressions from a few weeks ago, while adding that the running lights look a little BMW-ish.

Also, the overall shape of the headlights is a complete departure from what he saw on the old car. The new headlights are a lot smaller and indeed, less quirky than before, and the rear end looks more conventional.

Speaking of the rear, while initially we thought that the bumper would protrude a bit further out from the tailgate, that doesn’t seem to be the case – although some of these images aren’t exactly crystal clear. We did notice new taillight graphics though, which may or may not look like inverted shark teeth.

As for performance, Hyundai is rumored to offer the new Veloster with two turbocharged engines (1.4 and a 1.6-liter), both mated to 7-speed dual-clutch transmissions, although the 1.6-liter could also get a six-speed manual.

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster will be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Posted by Michael Gauthier in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Silverado, Detroit-Auto-Show, Ford, ford ranger, GMC Sierra, Hyundai Veloster, Mercedes G-Class, RAM, Reports, Toyota Avalon, VW, VW Jetta on 12 15th, 2017


The North American International Auto Show kicks off on January 14th and a handful of automakers have already announced plans to stage some major introductions in the Motor City.

At least seven models have already been confirmed for the show and they include the Ram 1500, Toyota Avalon, and Volkswagen Jetta. We will also get a glimpse at the all-new Hyundai Veloster as well as the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept which could preview a flagship crossover. Mercedes will also have a strong showing as the company will unveil the CLS53 and the luxurious new G-Class.

Of course, there will also be a handful of other models making their debut in Detroit and Autoweek is reporting we can expect an onslaught of pickups. We’ve already mentioned the Ram 1500 and it will reportedly be joined by the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. If three trucks isn’t enough, you’ll be happy to know Ford could also to showcase the new Ranger.

On the performance front, there have been constant rumors that Chevrolet will unveil the mid-engine Corvette in Motown. That remains uncertain and so do rumors that Ford will showcase either the Mustang Bullitt or Shelby GT500.

Speaking of uncertainties, Infiniti has hinted it could unveil a flagship concept at the show but little is known about it at this point.

2019 Hyundai Veloster Teased, Debuts In Detroit 29
Nov
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Detroit-Auto-Show, Hyundai, Hyundai Veloster on 11 29th, 2017


The Los Angeles Auto Show is already underway but Hyundai has joined Volkswagen in teasing a model for the North American International Auto Show.

Seen in these official photos, the 2019 Veloster is a stylish follow up to the first-generation model which launched nearly eight years ago. The overall shape appears to be largely the same but Hyundai designers focused on the details and apparently eliminated some of the car’s odder styling quirks.

Starting up front, we can see a massive grille that appears more upright than on its predecessor. It is flanked by LED-infused headlights and vertical air intakes. The sporty styling continues further back as the non-camouflaged image shows muscular fender flares, a rakish windscreen, and a more coupe-like roofline.

The photos only give us a glimpse of the car’s rear end but it appears to be a little more curvaceous than on the current model. The rear bumper also looks like it will protrude further out from tailgate as opposed to the nearly flush design on the outgoing model.

Hyundai isn’t ready to talk performance specifications but the Veloster will apparently be offered with two turbocharged engines displacing 1.4- and 1.6-liters. Both will reportedly come equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission while the latter engine will be offered with a traditional six-speed manual to please the purists.

Speaking of performance, the Veloster is slated to have three different driving modes and the sport mode is promising to offer faster acceleration and quicker shifting times.

In South Korea, the model will be offered with an assortment of high-tech features including a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system. The car will also offer high beam assist and a lane departure warning system.

Hyundai’s Upcoming Veloster N Might Look Very Nice Indeed 18
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Hyundai, Hyundai N, Hyundai Veloster, Renderings, Reports on 11 18th, 2017


Not a company to rest on its laurels, Hyundai is hard at work developing the second model in its range of N-performance models.

Based on the eye-catching Veloster, the new model is expected to share some of its components with the exciting i30 N. However, thanks to the sleeker design of the Veloster, the new N model could actually be the better looking of the two.

As this rendering from KKS Studio shows, the Veloster N will benefit from a selection of eye-catching modifications, including a much larger and more aggressive front grille. Additionally, recent spy shots have displayed revised air intakes, also included in this rendering. Final exterior changes include performance brakes, N-branded wheels, extended side skirts and a roof-mounted rear wing, along with two large tailpipes.

It remains to be seen if Hyundai will opt to make the top version of its quirky little coupe even more capable than the i30 N. Whatever it decides, it’s safe to assume that the hot hatchback’s engine, delivering 246 hp in standard guise and 271 hp with the Performance Package, should find its way into the Veloster N, potentially with more grunt.

Hyundai's going all-in with its new N range of performance models – and the i30 won't be the only one to get the go-fast treatment. We know that much because we've seen prototypes for an apparent Veloster N undergoing testing, and now we're seeing it again – with less camo.
