Hello, Are You The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N? 15
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 Gets Down To Work On A New Mini i10 10
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Hyundai, Hyundai i10, Hyundai Scoops, Scoops on 01 10th, 2018

Did you think the Accent was small? Well it is, but it’s far from the smallest that Hyundai makes. Outside of the United States, it offers models like the i10.

An A-segment city car, the Hyundai i10 was introduced in 2007 and replaced with the second-generation model in 2013. By that schedule, the third iteration should be hitting the streets sometime next year.

That means that the Korean automaker must already be hard at work on the new model, and here it is – or here they are, we should say, because our spies at CarPix have spotted two prototypes out parked in the snow.

Heavily camouflaged as they are, there’s little to be gleaned from these spy shots beyond their essential existence. Those holes in the front-end camo suggest a sort of Fiat 500 look, but that doesn’t necessarily speak to the sheetmetal (or indeed the headlight units) underneath. And Hyundai hasn’t been known to go the retro route very much.

What we can expect at this early stage is that the new i10 will share much with its corporate cousin, the Kia Picanto. That model was just replaced last year, and we can anticipate most of the same mechanical bits underneath – including the 1.0-liter inline-three and 1.2-liter inline-four engines, mated as they are to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. But you never know, we could end up surprised.

Facelifted Hyundai Tucson Coming With Revised Styling And More Tech 10
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Hyundai, Hyundai Scoops, Hyundai Tucson, Hyundai Tucson - ix35, Scoops on 01 10th, 2018

The Hyundai Tucson lives in a rough neighborhood. Not the suburban driveways where most are likely to be parked, but the highly competitive market segment at which it’s pitched.

That means Hyundai has to keep on its toes with a regular schedule of updates lest it go stale, and that’s exactly what it appears to have in store.

It appears that Hyundai’s revising the sheetmetal at both ends and along the doors in between. Expect new bumpers front and rear, with revised air vents and capped by fresh lighting graphics and a resculpted hood and tailgate as well.

Look for the Korean automaker to take the opportunity to fit updated engines, safety equipment, and infotainment technologies inside and under the hood as well when the revised model hits showrooms later this year or early the next. Because if it doesn’t, the competition will start edging in on its territory.

This Is The All-New 2019 Hyundai Veloster! 18
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.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Brings Its Quad Headlamp Fascia To The ‘Ring 8
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Hyundai, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Scoops, Hyundai Videos, Scoops, video on 11 8th, 2017

The third-generation Hyundai Santa Fe has been in production since 2012, but it’s getting ready to be replaced by a new model.

Expected to debut sometime next year, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe continues testing, with the latest prototype scooped on the Nurburgring, performing some quick laps.

The Korean brand’s challenger to the likes of the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail, among others, will benefit from an entirely new styling, highlighted by a more distinct fascia featuring two separate sets of headlights.

Things should be different inside as well, where it will provide more rear legroom and headroom, as it’s believed to have a larger footprint, while it will continue to be offered in two distinct versions – a 5- and 7-seater.

Hyundai hasn’t released any insights into the new Santa Fe’s powertrains just yet, but a variety of gasoline and diesel engines should be on offer in global markets, with the oil-burners being absent in the U.S.. Additionally, the Korean brand will likely introduce a plug-in hybrid variant of the SUV.
