After a massive promotion campaign, the US subdivision of Hyundai has officially introduced the new generation of the Veloster hatchback. The debut took place at the Detroit Auto Show. The model retained its unique feature in the segment: a driver's door and two for the passenger on the other side.

Fresh design has been a collaborative effort between Hyundai designers in Seoul, South Korea and the American design center in Irvine, California. Veloster combines the design appeal of a sports coupe with the versatility of an additional rear passenger doors, a two plus one asymmetric configuration for easier access to the rear seats.


The engine range is composed of two gasoline engines, one of which is naturally aspirated, and another turbo. The first unit has four cylinders, a displacement of 2.0 liters and is based on the Atkinson cycle. It produces 149 hp and 180 Nm of torque, coupled to a mechanical or automatic gearbox, both six-speed.

The second turbo unit also has four cylinders, but a displacement of 1.6 liters. It produces 203 hp and 264 Nm of torque. The standard gearbox is six-speed, and is optionally a seven-speed DCT with two clutches. In the second case there are paddles behind the wheel for switching gears.

Other features available for the Veloster include: traction vector control system (standard on all), sensors connected to ESC to transmit front-wheel braking force to the front wheels, ramp/slope assistant, Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires, head-up display, automatic braking system (standard), among many others.

Production of the new Hyundai Veloster will start in South Korea in March. Sales will begin in the second quarter.
