Test Drive Review of the New 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo 1

When Hyundai introduced the Veloster in 2011, the quirky pretty looking three-door hatch picked up a decent sale that went higher with every new edition and now, the 2019 Veloster is considered one of the best picks as a convenient little car, because of its reliability, and the latest tech features.

The First Look

At the showroom of Selma Hyundai dealer the 2019 Hyundai Veloster was right there to steal our attention with its glamorous look. The first glance made its own way to our mind, and it was not late when we found ourselves, arranging for the first test drive.

Looking at it with all our critical mind, we found the 2019 Veloster receiving all the revisions that was right in every proportion to give it a muscular appearance and even sportier. A lower roof is newly introduced that made it look more modern and stylish.

The cascading front grille looks good from every angle, while a new set of LED head and taillights, all standing on the high 18-inch wheels with a rear diffuser bring about the right looks that can allure anyone to keep looking at the Veloster for some more time.

The Comfort Inside

Getting inside the 2019 Veloster will make your mind bend more towards driving it home. The interior skin as well as the upholstery are of materials that gives the premium feel with the comfort they gain. The dashboard design is new too with the touchscreen placed right at the center in line with the rest of the controls. This generation of the Hyundai Veloster is equipped with a HUD head-up display and the option for wireless charging to keep you stay connected.

Engine Options and Driving Impressions

The Turbo Tech trim that we drove was equipped with the 1.6L, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that got continued from its previous generation of Veloster and you can find the same in the new Elantra Sport and the Kona. The engine raised a horsepower of 201 and a torque of 195 lb. -ft, in combination with the newly improved manual gearbox. To be honest the combination did a good job on the road. The stick shift was smooth in its movement and precise in its reaction. The acceleration too was smooth without giving any sudden throb to the vehicle.

We came to know later from the experts of the Selma Hyundai, that the entry-level engine is now upgraded from a 1.6L block to a 2.0L engine that in turn gained 9 units more horsepower to rule on the bumpy roads. Both the engine options however are made available with a six-speed manual transmission, while the 2.0L engine alone is also been offered an option to be driven with a six-speed automatic transmission. The turbo trim on the other hand got a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to match its engine power.

Overall, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster did impress us with the basic qualities anyone would look into, when the brand is as trusted as Hyundai.
