What You Will Like

The Veloster lands somewhere between compacts and hot hatches such as the Mazda3 and the larger Volkswagen Golf, MINI Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle. The Veloster stands out by offering cavernous interior space for both cargo and passengers. Efficiency too, will attract buyers, particularly with the sprightly 1.6L turbo, which manages sub-6 second 0-60 mph acceleration times as well as excellent fuel economy, achieving over 30 mpg on the highway in Turbo trim.

What's New For 2019

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster moves into its first new generation since its introduction. Most everything has been updated and revised providing an aggressive twist on exterior styling. The waterfall front grille is larger and bolder, the headlights are sleeker and better accent the re-worked front fascia. LED running lights are now standard as well as a larger rear diffuser and raked rear roofline to add a more pronounced shape to the back end of the vehicle. The interior is updated around trim-specific color and material schemes and includes an optional 8-inch touchscreen-based infotainment system. A multi-link independent rear suspension replaces the outgoing model's torsion beam setup, promoting sporty and responsive handling.


  • Basic Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 10 Years / 100,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is no sporty-hatch carbon copy. Unlike any compact car on the road, the asymmetrical Veloster boasts two doors on the passenger side, but only the front door on the driver’s side.

Introduced as a 2012 model, the Veloster skipped the 2018 model year. The returned version is nearly identical in form, but slightly bigger. The 2.0-liter base engine is more powerful this time around, gaining 15 horsepower. LED headlights and taillights have been added. Hyundai also has launched a new Veloster N edition, with higher power and a manual gearbox.

In addition to the new N model, Velosters come in five trim levels: 2.0 (base model), 2.0 Premium, turbocharged R-Spec, Turbo, and Turbo Ultimate.

Hyundai has largely carried over the Veloster’s two standard powertrains, but added power to one of them. The base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is now rated at 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, versus 132 hp and 120 pound-feet in the 2017 model.

The 1.6-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine is a total carryover, again issuing 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Those figures match every other Hyundai vehicle that offers the turbo-4 engine.

Both engines mate with a standard 6-speed manual gearbox. A 6-speed automatic transmission is optional for the base engine, but the turbo-4 is offered with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Drive modes toggle between Normal, to Sport, and Smart on automatic-transmission versions, but only Normal and Sport on manual-shift models. These modes alter steering heft, throttle progression, and shift timing.

In the new Veloster N, the 2.0-liter turbo-4 develops 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet, paired only with a 6-speed manual transmission. An electronically-controlled suspension is installed, with multiple track-tuned driving modes.

Neither of the two rating agencies has crash-tested the current Veloster yet. Every 2019 Veloster gets forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, plus active lane control.

Upper models are equipped with blind-spot monitors, but the base model relies on blind-spot mirrors. Adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection are in the Ultimate Turbo.


Prices do not include $920 destination charge.

2.0 Base ($18,500 with manual, $19,500 with 6-speed automatic) includes the 2.0-liter engine, cruise control, Bluetooth, 7.0-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, capability, 17-inch alloy wheels, and automatic emergency braking.

2.0 Premium ($22,750) comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, blind-spot monitors, keyless ignition, wireless smartphone charging, an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, Infinity 8-speaker audio, a sunroof, heated front seats, paddle shifters, and cloth/synthetic leather upholstery.

Turbo R-Spec manual ($22,900) holds the 1.6-liter turbo-4 and 6-speed manual gearbox. Standard are Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires on 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, sport-tuned suspension/steering and exhaust, and alloy pedals.

Turbo DCT ($25,400) gets the 1.6-liter turbo and dual-clutch transmission, as well as heated front seats, sunroof, blind-spot monitors, leather/cloth upholstery, and automatic climate control.

Turbo Ultimate ($26,650 with manual, $28,150 with dual-clutch) includes the 1.6-liter turbo, leather upholstery, black roof, navigation, wireless smartphone charging, a head-up display, and pedestrian detection for its automatic emergency braking.

Turbo N 2.0 manual ($26,900) upgrades to a 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder, with 6-speed manual shift. Standard features include 18-inch wheels, cloth sport seats with blue stitching, sport instrument cluster, and electronic suspension. A $2,100 Performance Package adds a limited-slip differential and 19-inch Pirelli tires.


Defiantly offbeat in its original form, the reworked Veloster has been expertly refined, for a more cohesive appearance. Yet its unique shape and configuration remain, topped by a sporty roofline.

Designers have done a good job blending the prominent grille, deep front fascia, and slimmed-down headlights to correlate with the other Hyundai models. Windshield pillars were pushed rearward, stretching out the hood. Wheel arches boast flagrant flares.

A new diffuser flanks the center-positioned exhaust pipes: one for standard models, but twin pipes for the Veloster Turbo. A contrasting roof is available for the Turbo. The new Veloster N earns some distinct styling touches including specific front/rear fascias and side air dams.


Inspired by the recently-launched Kona crossover, the Veloster’s cabin is highlighted by a big touchscreen above the center stack. Piano black trim and hard plastic elements, while abundant, are neatly executed.

Though seemingly clever, the audacious door configuration doesn’t add much utility. Interior space has barely changed, but quality of materials reaches well past the prior Veloster.

Front seats have better padding now, with much thicker upper-back bolstering. Base models get cloth seats, but some Turbos feature a grippy cloth/leather combination.

Two medium-size adults fit in back, at least for occasional jaunts. All told, reaching the Veloster’s back seat isn’t much easier than entering a similar-size two-door hatchback or coupe. Once there, a 6-foot passenger can expect to slouch a bit, splaying knees outward to fit.

Although the cabin remains rather narrow, headroom in sunroof-equipped models is just sufficient enough to keep tall occupants’ heads from touching the roof. Power seats are no longer offered.

Climate and audio controls are logically arranged. Working with a well-executed infotainment system, either a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen sits above the attractive center stack.

Cargo space totals 19.9 cubic feet behind the rear seat. Liftover is high, but the hatch release is cleverly mounted in the rear wiper’s housing.

Driving Impressions

A stiffened body structure has improved Veloster handling capabilities. A new multi-link suspension helps make it more predicable. Quick steering isn’t quite as precise as some drivers might desire, but it’s generally fine, apart from exhibiting some on-center wander.

Ride quality is on the firm side, short on compliance. Mid-corner bumps and pavement flaws no longer upset the Veloster’s equilibrium. Even Turbo models, if wearing all-season tires, ride softly enough to ensure adequate comfort. Still, some skittering is likely when traversing swift, tight corners.

The base engine has not yet been test-driven, but the 201-horsepower Turbo promises a sizable helping of joy. Energetic and responsive, the turbo-4s feel strong and quick, helped by vehicle weight of less than 3,000 pounds. In manual-gearbox Turbos, the shift level yields a satisfying snick as it moves between ratios. Hyundai’s dual-clutch transmission shifts cleanly at mid-range speeds, but can become touchy at urban speeds.

Turbos get amplified, synthetic engine sounds pumped into the cabin, but this feature can be toned down or shut off. Otherwise, thicker door panels and more sound deadening help keep unwanted noise under control.

Ready to invite comparison with Honda’s striking Civic Type R, the new 275-horsepower Veloster N boasts a firmer suspension, limited-slip front differential, and special steering tuning.

Fuel economy is reasonably good. With manual shift, base-engine versions are EPA-rated at 25/33 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. The 6-speed automatic raises the estimate to 27/34/30 mpg. The manual-shift Veloster Turbo is EPA-rated at 26/33 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined, and 28/34/30 mpg with the dual-clutch transmission.


Not only is the 2019 Hyundai Veloster better looking, it’s a lot more refined for a higher-quality feel. Handling has improved, but the door configuration seems like more of a gimmick than a practical necessity. More than before, the sporty Veloster is a compelling rival to various performance-ready models from Honda and Volkswagen.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
