Hyundai Previews New Veloster With Energetic Teaser

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.
