Hyundai has unveiled its all-new Veloster and Veloster Turbo models at the North American International Auto Show. The fresh design was a collaborative effort of Hyundai designers from Seoul, South Korea and the U.S. design centre in Irvine, California. The new Veloster features a comprehensive exterior and interior redesign, powertrain enhancements, and a bevy of new and improved infotainment and connectivity features. The 2019 Veloster begins production in March 2018 in Ulsan, Korea, with Australian market availability in the second half of 2018.

“Our new 2019 Veloster represents an even more compelling offering for young and young-at-heart automotive enthusiasts with more expressive design, involving dynamics and cutting-edge infotainment features,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning at Hyundai Motor America. “When combined with Hyundai’s outstanding value and efficiency, the new Veloster is sure to attract a progressive new group of enthusiast buyers.”

ALL-NEW DESIGN

The Veloster merges the design appeal of a sport coupe with the versatility of an additional passenger side rear door in an asymmetrical two-plus-one configuration for easier rear-seat access. From the front, available LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights flank a striking new grille design. Functional air curtains add both a visual design cue and an active aerodynamic function. Hyundai’s signature cascade grille shape has morphed into a strong, three-dimensional design that sets the sport coupe apart.

Much of the redesign is derived from enhanced proportions and volume; the new shape clearly conveys focused dynamic performance, even standing still. Its stance is more muscular, with higher-volume fenders and wheel arches for a more planted appearance. The cowl point and A-pillar are further rearward and now connect the hood line and belt line into an integrated, powerful gesture. Available 18-inch alloy wheels aggressively fill the wheelhouse openings. Further, the roofline has been lowered for a unique profile and a distinctive coupe-inspired essence. The fender line is also more coupe-like, and the rear now has a more aggressive integrated diffuser design. Available LED taillights help complete the rear view with a high-tech appearance.

Also available is a full darkened roof treatment for a high-contrast performance appearance. Veloster’s dynamic rear design has a distinctive glass hatch and center-fascia chrome exhaust tips, with a single outlet for the 2.0 litre model and dual-outlets for the Turbo model.

The asymmetrical design carries through to the interior, with a driver-focused layout and on the Turbo model, a contrasting colour environment that visually separates the driving cockpit. Each trim level has unique colours, materials, and accents, further differentiating each model with varying hues and textures.

2.0 LITRE ENGINE

The Veloster 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine uses the Atkinson-cycle for superior efficiency and lower emissions.

The 2.0 litre engine delivers a peak output of 110kW at 6,200 rpm (estimated) and maximum torque of 179Nm at 4,500 rpm (estimated). The Nu 2.0-litre also features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing, an electronic throttle control, variable induction and innovative anti-friction coatings. The engine is coupled to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission. Three driver-selectable modes include Normal, Sport, and Smart, according to changing driver preferences.

1.6 LITRE TURBOCHARGED ENGINE

The 1.6 litre turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine produces 150kW at 6,000 rpm (estimated) and 264Nm. of torque from 1,500-4,500 rpm (estimated). In addition, there is an over-boost function that raises peak torque output to 274Nm under maximum acceleration. Engine tuning maximises low- and mid-range torque, for optimum acceleration under daily driving conditions.

Veloster Turbo is paired with either a standard six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT). Both transmissions were developed in-house by Hyundai. The Veloster Turbo seven-speed dual-clutch transmission features steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters and SHIFTRONIC® transmission gear control. In addition, all Veloster Turbo models feature Active Sound Design, which enhances intake and exhaust powertrain sound character inside the cabin for a more visceral driving experience, especially during spirited driving. Turbo models also offer three selectable driving modes, including Normal, Sport and Smart, according to driver preferences for engine, transmission and steering feel.

TORQUE VECTORING CONTROL

All Veloster models offer Torque Vectoring Control (TVC). This active cornering feature utilising capabilities from the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and powertrain control systems, allows Veloster to improve dynamic cornering during more enthusiastic driving. TVC uses wheel-speed sensors coupled with ESC algorithms to apply precise braking force to the inside front wheel during spirited cornering. This active braking redirects power to the outside front wheel in the turn, reducing wheelspin for enhanced cornering grip and corner-exit acceleration. Overall, this provides Veloster drivers with an incremental margin of cornering precision during enthusiastic driving.

Furthermore, Veloster Turbo features a quicker-ratio steering rack and revised steering calibration to match.

DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT)

Hyundai’s EcoShift DCT takes the benefits of a manual transmission, such as low fuel consumption, and blends these with automatic transmission benefits, such as high comfort levels and driving ease. In addition, the DCT enables direct connection for high efficiency and uninterrupted torque transfer during shifts. The DCT also incorporates Hyundai’s Hillstart Assist Control (HAC), designed to minimise rolling backwards on steep ascents.

TURBO MODEL SPORT-TUNED DYNAMICS

Veloster Turbo models are fitted with a McPherson strut front suspension, coil springs, gas shock absorbers and front stabiliser bar. The rear suspension is a lightweight independent multi-link design with a stabiliser bar to further control body roll. The rear suspension uses gas-pressurised shock absorbers for ride comfort with excellent control. Veloster features electric power steering that adjusts assistance to changing driving conditions while improving fuel economy over a conventional steering system. 18-inch alloy wheels are available with Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 tyres.

ADVANCED STANDARD SAFETY

Veloster offers advanced active safety features, including standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), which uses the car’s front-facing camera to detect an imminent collision and avoid impact or minimise damage by braking autonomously. Three additional systems also utilise the front-view camera to boost safety and convenience: Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), High Beam Assist (HBA) for the available LED headlights, and Driver Attention Warning (DAW).

By sensing road markings, LKA helps to prevent accidental lane departure by helping to steer the vehicle as required. HBA automatically controls the high beam headlights by dimming and illuminating them automatically as needed with approaching traffic, while the Driver Attention Warning system monitors a spectrum of driver-related characteristics to detect driver fatigue or careless driving.

Veloster radar systems also assist with the available Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) to detect approaching vehicles from the rear that may be obscured from view and alert the driver of their presence during lane changes. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collison Warning (RCCW) detects when another vehicle may have entered the car’s rearward path, such as when backing out of a parking spot, and provides a driver alert. Veloster Turbo also offers available Smart Cruise Control for additional driver convenience.

All Veloster models feature a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines for superior parking visibility. Velosters have an exceptional level of standard safety features highlighted by a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, which optimally manages ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS).

VSM works to control two effects. The first is when a driver accelerates or brakes on a split-mu surface (slippery on one side, dry pavement on the other) and the vehicle wants to pull in one direction. VSM detects this condition and sends a signal to the MDPS to apply steering assist to counter this force. VSM counters the pull and automatically provides counter steering. VSM reacts the same way during sudden lane changes or fast cornering.

All Veloster models feature six airbags—including dual front, front seat-mounted side-impact, and front and rear side curtain airbags. Velosters also features a state-of-the-art braking package. The package includes four-wheel disc brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake Assist, which provides maximum braking force when a panic stop is detected, and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), to automatically adjust the braking force to front and rear axles based on vehicle loading conditions.

ADVANCED INFOTAINMENT AND CONNECTIVITY

Veloster offers a full suite of sophisticated technologies paired with user-friendly functionality to keep passengers informed and entertained. The premium infotainment system offers various advanced connectivity features, including Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. Also available are SiriusXM® Radio, HD Radio and next-generation Blue Link® LTE-powered connectivity. The standard seven-inch color LCD display includes AM/FM/MP3 touchscreen audio, auxiliary input jacks, and Rear View Monitor. The available floating-design eight-inch touchscreen navigation display includes next-generation Blue Link, traffic flow and incident data via HD radio, and Infinity® premium audio with eight speakers, including a subwoofer and Clari-Fi ™ music-restoration technology. Smartphone integration is also included in the premium system.

A Heads-Up Display system is available, projecting a virtual image onto the transparent panel mounted behind the instrument panel and helping the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road. With a generous projected-image size and outstanding luminance, the Heads-Up Display ensures both excellent day- and night-time visibility. Information projected includes speed, navigation instructions, cruise control, Lane Departure Warning and audio system information. When in Sport mode, the system projects more driver-focused information including RPM, KPH and transmission gear. Deployed vertically by a simple touch of a button beside the steering wheel, the display disappears into the dashboard when not in use.

Customers expect to be connected to their electronics at all times, so Veloster comes standard with a multifunction seven-inch touchscreen display. Veloster audio/navigation systems also offer:

  • Available Qi wireless-charging capability
  • Available eight-inch display audio or audio/navigation system
  • Multi-touch screen with menu swipe function
  • Available HD Radio® capability
  • “Eyes Free” Apple Siri® integration for iPhone
  • Navigation map and music split-screen display function
  • Navigation map with enhanced junction-view lane guidance

Veloster Turbo features standard Infinity Premium audio with eight speakers, including a subwoofer, passive radiator and external amplifier. A SiriusXM® Satellite Radio interface is integrated into the head unit and features channel logos and data services.

Veloster also offers available smartphone wireless charging. To charge a device, simply place a compatible smartphone on the wireless-charging interface located in the center console storage, recharging without the need for cables. The system indicates when the phone has fully charged, reminds occupants to remove their phone when exiting the vehicle, and detects when a foreign object is in the recharging area that could interfere with charging. The system is fully compliant with WPC’s Qi standard for ease of use.

Hyundai has unveiled its high performance Veloster N model at the North American International Motor Show.

Hyundai’s high performance N line-up was developed to make the driver’s heart beat faster whenever they’re behind the wheel. Instead of focusing on outright performance numbers, Hyundai chose to emphasise the N driver’s heartbeats per minute (BPM), rather than revs per minute (RPM). With fun-to-drive character as a top priority, Veloster N has been developed to deliver thrilling cornering ability coupled with everyday sports car drivability and race track capability.

Veloster N was born in Namyang, Hyundai’s global R&D centre, and was thoroughly honed at its Nurburgring-based testing centre in Germany. The Veloster N begins production in September 2018 in Ulsan, Korea.

“Veloster N takes Hyundai to a new level of purchase consideration for true driving enthusiasts,” said Albert Biermann, president and head of Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division, Hyundai Motor Group. “The Veloster N is another example of Hyundai Motor's capabilities, creating an exciting sports car with thrilling dynamics combined with a compelling affordability equation as key to the N high-performance concept.”

The Veloster N offers a comprehensive degree of exterior, interior and mechanical differentiation even beyond the 2019 Veloster Turbo models.

N EXTERIOR DIFFERENTIATION

From the outside, Veloster N provides an exclusive N-design front fascia and grille with dedicated front air ducts for enhanced brake cooling.

In profile, exclusive N-design rocker side sills and available lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels with a machined-finish dual-spoke star design clearly differentiate the N model from other Veloster variants. Tyres are of the ultra-high performance category, with standard 225/40R18 Michelin Pilot SuperSport for the 18-inch wheel design and exclusive-compound 235/35R19 Pirelli P-Zero for the 19-inch alloy wheel.

The rear of the Veloster N sports a larger N-design rear spoiler, rear fascia design with integrated diffuser, and performance-diameter, high-flow dual exhaust.

N INTERIOR DESIGN

On the inside, Veloster N offers exclusive N-design front cloth sport seats with performance-focused bolstering, N-design steering wheel, shift knob, N-logo door sill plates, and N-design instrument cluster. Interior details are accented by an N performance blue accent theme. As engine speed approaches redline, the N-design centre cluster displays a progressive sequential shift indicator, alerting the driver of an impending shift point for maximum acceleration.

N POWERTRAIN

The 2.0 litre direct-injected turbocharged engine delivers 202kW at 6,000 rpm (estimated) and up to 353Nm of torque from 1,450-4,700 rpm (estimated) for responsive, thrilling performance at every RPM range. The turbo system intercooler is isolated from the condenser and radiator for even more efficient cooling of the intake charge. The system also benefits from a two-stage induction system for maximum output at all rpm ranges.

The engine compression ratio is 9.5:1, high for a turbocharged engine.

The high performance engine is backed up by a close-ratio, short-throw six-speed manual transmission with downshift rev-matching capability. The transmission uses carbon-coated synchro rings and gear material reinforcement for smoother operation and lower overall shift force coupled with a positive engagement feel.

The Veloster N clutch also utilises a double-layer facing clutch disc design for increased burst strength and torque capability. In addition, the powertrain sports a multi-mode, high-flow active sport exhaust system with a variable exhaust actuator. In N mode, this system yields an exhilarating engine over-run exhaust crackle during spirited-driving upshifts and rev-matched downshifts.

N SUSPENSION GEOMETRY AND TUNING

Generous torque from the turbocharged powertrain is smoothly and efficiently driven to the tarmac by an N Power Sense Axle design.

Veloster N’s Power Sense axle geometry features a zero-scrub radius for more precise steering, quicker response, and a direct on-centre feel, with increased steering linearity. The geometry is further optimised for linear torque build up and corner-exit precision. Roll angle is also decreased due to a shorter roll-moment arm, resulting in enhanced grip.

The motor-driven power steering system is rack-mounted and secured at three locations for reduced flex and more direct handling, especially during high-performance driving. For even greater body rigidity and suspension precision under high dynamic cornering loads, a specially designed, unobtrusive rear strut brace reinforces the rear multi-link suspension mounting points.

Unique suspension tuning is derived from a multi-mode electronically-controlled suspension with a track-focused N mode available. The suspension uses a load transfer control system that reduces dive during braking, enhances roll control during cornering and reduces rear suspension compression under hard acceleration.

Outstanding cornering is further achieved via an available electronic torque-vectoring N Corner-Carving Limited-slip Differential. The N Corner Carving Differential improves launch performance, reduces acceleration slip understeer and increases maximum cornering speed via precise torque-vectoring.

Veloster N offers a wide range of driver tuning preference via its N Grin Control System drive mode selection system. Modes include Normal, Sport, N, Eco and N Custom, differentiating engine throttle response, engine speed rev-matching, exhaust note, active differential tuning, suspension damping rates, steering feel and yaw-control characteristics.

N Custom mode allows comprehensive driving character preferences via uniquely customisable settings for each tunable driving attribute.

N BRAKING

Veloster N available braking offers oversized 13.6-inch performance rotors on the front axle and 12.4-inch rotors on the rear, for confident, heat-dissipating braking performance coupled with a firm pedal feel.

Hyundai Motor Company Australia has announced the rationalisation of the Veloster range, with the aim of further improving its value-for-money appeal. Effective immediately, Veloster will be reduced from four model grades to two high specification versions – the normally-aspirated Veloster, priced from $29,590, and the Veloster SR Turbo, priced from $30,650.

Still selling strongly in its sixth year on the Australian market, the striking three-door Hyundai Veloster coupe is expected to maintain its impressive market share as this latest model line change takes effect. The entry Veloster, powered by a normally-aspirated 1.6-litre four cylinder direct-injection engine rated at 103kW and 167Nm, combines two previous model grades into one.

Compared to the previous entry model, it gains leather-appointed seats, electric driver’s seat, Proximity Smart Key with Push Button Start, climate control, panoramic glass sunroof, electric folding mirrors and many other desirable items (see diagram below). While it loses the satellite navigation system, CD player, premium audio system and steering-wheel mounted phone controls of the previous Veloster +, it gains Apple CarPlay and Google Now (Android) voice activation.

It is a similar story for Veloster SR Turbo. Powered by a turbocharged version of Veloster’s 1.6-litre engine, rated at 150kW and 265Nm, the SR now represents even better value than ever. The previous model’s strong value story is retained thanks to the addition of the Apple Carplay, panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control and electrically folding and heated side mirrors.

“These cars are superbly appointed,” said Hyundai Motor Company Australia Director of Marketing, Oliver Mann. “We have concentrated on the features our customers have told us they like the most. Keeping popular, high-value items such as the panoramic sunroof and leather-appointed upholstery has led to a sharper overall package for both Veloster models. Veloster is more than just a brilliant, unique, and surprisingly practical design – it is without doubt the best-value, best-equipped car in its class, now more than ever.”

Hyundai’s three-door Veloster coupe-hatch has been substantially upgraded. Veloster Series II also now offers a 7-speed double-clutch transmission on SR Turbo variants. Veloster Series II brings outstanding new features, new looks, both inside and out, together with new exterior colours, including a striking matte-blue finish. Veloster Series II’s now four-tier range also introduces a new entry level, sub-$30,000 Veloster SR Turbo. Veloster Series II’s performance-oriented ride, handling and steering have been further refined by Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s highly respected local chassis development team. The result is a better Veloster that also delivers even greater value.

Veloster Series II introduces wider tyres (now 225/40 R18, up from 215/40 R18), significant spring and stabiliser bar changes, and new Hydraulic Rebound Stops (HRS) in the front dampers. Veloster Series II’s Australian-focused ride, handling and steering was fine-tuned after exhaustive testing by Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s vastly experienced and well-respected chassis development team, led by the General Manager Product Engineering, Hee Loong Wong, aka 'Wongy'. The tuning process evaluated over 49 separate suspension combinations of springs, sway bars and bespoke built dampers. The team’s systematic testing procedures – conducted both on-road and via extensive computer modelling – also benefitted from recent experience gained during local chassis development of the VelosterRaptor concept and Elantra Series II. “The bigger tyres on Veloster Series II meant we needed to address the subtle increase in the car’s unsprung weight,” Hee Loong Wong said.

“We reduced the front stabiliser bar diameter across the Veloster Series II range to allow for more independent front-wheel movement. In the naturally aspirated Veloster and Veloster +, the bar was reduced from 24mm to 21mm. In Veloster SR Turbo and SR Turbo +, it was reduced from 24mm to 22mm. “We were able to use a smaller-diameter stabiliser bar in the naturally aspirated Veloster and Veloster + because that engine is marginally lighter than the Turbo, with subsequent lower impact loads and reduced roll tendency.” The lighter engine in the naturally aspirated Veloster and Veloster + also enabled the chassis development team to reduce the front spring rate from 2.6 to 2.5. The smaller front stabiliser bars also deliver greater initial roll response for sharper turn-in and increased droop on the unladen inner inside front wheel, for better drive out of corners. In Veloster Series II SR Turbo and SR Turbo + the team compensated for the resulting increase in mid-corner roll caused by its smaller stabiliser bar by increasing the front spring rate from 2.6 to 2.7 and finessing the low-speed damper characteristics. Additionally, this enhanced front agility – with sharper turn-in and more aggressive drive out of corners – gives the car a more ‘playful’ character, allowing the rear to be more actively involved during high-speed cornering.

Rear spring rates and torsion beam specification were unchanged, although new dampers were specified to match Veloster Series II’s new front-rear balance.  Importantly, Veloster Series II also switches from the previous Veloster’s 16-bit MDPS (Motor Driven Power Steering) system to Hyundai’s latest-tech 32-bit system. Additionally, Veloster Series II SR Turbo + also adopts Hyundai’s driver-adjustable three-mode Flex Steer system. “We’re extremely happy with the results and believe its retuned suspension together with the new MDPS system have transformed Veloster Series II’s ride, handling and responsiveness,” Wong said. “Veloster Series I was good but we believe Series II is even better.”

Suspension tuning facts:

  • 49 separate suspension combinations evaluated
  • 29 front dampers built and tested
  • 30 rear dampers built and tested
  • 2 front sway bars tested
  • 2 front spring options tested
  • 2 rear spring options tested

Subtle but effective changes add even more to the Veloster’s uniquely dynamic appeal. Veloster Series II’s Fluidic Sculpture styling has been enhanced via a distinctive grey grille surround (on both SR Turbo variants) and new-style 18-inch alloy wheels. Adding new sophistication and sportiness to Veloster Series II’s side profile, the new alloys are available in two dynamic styles. Both are shod with sporty 225/40 R18 tyres.

Veloster Series II’s major upgrades further strengthen Veloster’s already-benchmark interior equipment list.

Standout new features include:

  • Heated and ventilated front seats (SR Turbo +)
  • New electroluminescent sports type instrument cluster (SR Turbo variants)
  • Coloured seatbelts (SR Turbo and SR Turbo +, from April 2015 production)
  • Colour-stitched steering wheels (SR Turbo variants)
  • Blue-highlighted, leather-appointed trim (SR Turbo variants with Blue Sprinter matte paint)

Veloster Series II is powered by Hyundai’s direct-injection 1.6-litre Gamma engine, in naturally aspirated or turbocharged form. The Gamma engine boasts Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing, electronic throttle control, roller timing chain, variable induction and innovative anti-friction coatings. Power and torque figures for both engine types are unchanged. The naturally-aspirated engine offers 103kW at 6300rpm and 167Nm at 4850rpm. In Veloster Series II, SR Turbo and SR Turbo + power and torque are 150kW at 6000rpm and 265Nm at 1750-4500rpm respectively. Both naturally aspirated and turbocharged Veloster Series II variants are available with a sporty six-speed manual gearbox. Naturally aspirated Veloster and Veloster + variants also come with Hyundai’s six-speed double-clutch transmission (DCT) with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

New for Veloster Series II and exclusive to the SR Turbo range is the addition of the smooth shifting 7-speed DCT, also with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The all-new 7-speed DCT offers even sportier performance with quick changes and improved fuel economy (now 7.1L/100km, down from 7.6L/100km).
