Hyundai has already shown official images of the Veloster with strange camouflage, now it is showing some formalized teaser photos. Between the two sets of images, few secrets remain regarding the redesigned 2019 Veloster, which is clearly an evolutionary spin on the current one.
Since the original Veloster launched in 2011, Hyundai design has clearly matured quite significantly. So perhaps it comes as little shock that Hyundai appears to be painting the all-new Veloster with a brush of maturity in terms of design. The somewhat quirky front clip of the first-generation car has been swapped out with a more aggressive look, centered on a larger grille that looks similar to the i30 and Kona.
The side panels have also been cleaned up, but retain the wedge-like shape that has made Veloster sort of an icon on the market.
Around back the new Veloster appears sleeker than today’s, but retains the same overall shape and center exhaust outlets.
So far Hyundai has not officially announced any specifications for the 2019 Veloster, but we’re expecting the current Veloster Turbo’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder to become the new base engine. Later on a Veloster N model could launch with a higher-output version of Hyundai’s turbocharged 2.0-liter.
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster will officially bow at next week’s Detroit Auto Show, where all remaining details will come into light.
