Longmont Loveland - 2019 Hyundai Veloster OVERVIEW

Exterior

Standard on the 2019 Veloster are a rear wiper and spoiler, projector headlights with automatic on/off switching ability, and 17-inch alloy wheels. On the 2.0 Premium, the 17-inch wheels give way to 18-inch ones. In accordance with its racing-style personality, the R-Spec has a distinctive grille and rear spoiler. Also, the halogen bulbs for the exterior lighting are replaced by brighter and longer-lasting LEDs. On the Turbo and Turbo Ultimate, the exterior mirrors get turn-signal indicators.

Mechanical

The new Hyundai ride uses a MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension for absorbing turbulence caused by driving on less-than-smooth surfaces. If you go with one of the Turbo variants, the suspension is tuned to be firmer and more exciting on the road. On each wheel is a disc brake to ensure that stopping distances are short.

Powertrainn

New for the 2019 model year is the Nu, which is a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine that generates up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. To increase fuel efficiency and lower emissions, the Nu adopts the Atkinson Cycle. Only the Turbo R-Spec is powered by the Gamma GDI engine, which is a 1.6-liter I4 that supplies 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque and is connected to a dual centered mounted exhaust system. While most trims offer you the choice between a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic transmission, the former is standard on the R-Spec. Plus, the Turbo trim standard alone with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC® gear control, and it joins the 2.0 Premium in also having paddle shifters installed on the steering wheel. The automatic and dual-clutch gearboxes are accompanied by a Driver Mode Select system to change driving feel and function via powertrain adjustments.

For safety in the event of a car crash, this 2019 Hyundai coupe comes with dual front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and dual roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Also standard on the car are anti-lock braking to prevent wheel lock-up during abrupt stops, brake assist for additional stopping force when needed, electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of stopping power, LED daytime running lights for increasing conspicuity, and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines for reverse-driving guidance.
