Successful innovations. The new Veloster features a comprehensive exterior and interior redesign, powertrain enhancements, and a bevy of new and improved infotainment and connectivity features. Get in. Stand out. We designed the Veloster to stand out and that's exactly what it does. With vivid color options, a unique 3-door design and its long list of premium features, you're going to love looking at it as much as you love driving it. While the Turbo and Turbo R-Spec give you even greater visual impact with their distinctive front grille and bodykit designs.
When it comes to the exhaust, performance and style work hand-in-hand to provide a signature look. The Veloster has squared, chrome-tipped dual exhaust, while the Veloster Turbo distinguishes itself with centered round exhaust ports. Whenever you head off on another adventure, you'll find yourself leaving the crowd, and an impression, behind.
The Veloster Turbo further sets itself apart with its wide-mouthed grille and bodykit for a low, aggressive stance. It also features fascia-encased front fog lights and projector headlights with unique LED accents-all designed to make Veloster Turbo look like no other car on the road.
Get used to the spotlight. An aggressive front grille, flanked by distinctive LED headlight accents and standard fog lights, plus its beveled hood design gives Veloster a look that sets it apart from the competition.
Notice anything different on the passenger side of Veloster? Expressive styling and smart features like the stealth third door turn form and function into a powerful attraction. The result offers the look of a sporty coupe with the added benefit of easy access for rear-seat passengers.
The available panoramic sunroof on the Value Edition and Veloster Turbo improves your view to the top. With the touch of a finger, transform the comfortable cabin and fill it with air, energy and light.
Designed to express maximum fun. The asymmetrical design carries through to the interior, with a driver-focused interior layout and on the Turbo Ultimate, a contrasting color environment that visually separates the driving cockpit.
The Veloster's unique 3-door design with glass rear hatch and available panoramic sunroof create an impressive effect, giving Veloster a roomy and enjoyable interior. There are also split fold-down rear seatbacks to make room for the gear that makes great adventures possible.
Some people were just meant for the big screen. Access all of your information and entertainment options via Veloster's standard multimedia LCD touchscreen that measures 7 inches with rearview camera. Plus, Veloster also comes with the tech you want. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ support are standard.
Here's a must-have feature that adds comfort and convenience for both the driver and front-seat passenger. Individual controls let each person set the front-seat microclimate to their liking. There's also a helpful automatic windshield defog function that gives the driver a clearer view of the road ahead. It's available on Veloster Value Edition and Turbo with tech package.
Veloster comes complete with a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel that features audio controls, cruise control, and an integrated Bluetooth® hands-free phone system with voice recognition and phonebook transfer. The controls you access most often are right at your fingertips, so you can get the most out of every drive and keep distractions to a minimum.
Finally, an audio system that sounds great and is up to the challenge of playing along with your life. The Dimension AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 audio system* delivers plenty of power with 8 speakers-including an 8-inch subwoofer. Your audio options include streaming music via Bluetooth®-equipped mobile phones, or connecting devices like your smartphone. Standard on Veloster Value Edition, Turbo and R-Spec.
Research has shown that sunlight and fresh air are good for you. This huge, available panoramic sunroof gives you more of both compared to regular-sized sunroofs. It's a feature that you can get on Veloster Value Edition and Veloster Turbo. So, now there are more ways to drive healthy.
Turbo model sport-tuned dynamics: Veloster Turbos are fitted with a McPherson strut front suspension, coil springs, gas shock absorbers and a 24-mm diameter front stabilizer bar. The rear suspension is a lightweight independent multi-link design with a 19-mm stabilizer bar to further control body roll. The rear suspension uses gas-pressurized shock absorbers for ride comfort with excellent control. Veloster features electric power steering that adjusts assistance to changing driving conditions while improving fuel economy over a conventional steering system. When equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, available 18-inch alloy wheels are fitted with Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 summer tires.
Typically found on high-end cars, the sophisticated 6-speed EcoShift® and 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmissions (DCT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters incorporate the latest technology while delivering smooth and efficient power. You also have the option of an enthusiast-focused 6-speed manual transmission that's fun to drive and puts you in total control at all times.
At the core of the Veloster Turbo R-Spec are features that put you in touch with the road and maximize vehicle performance. The 201-hp twin-scroll turbocharged engine is at the top of a features list that includes a B&M Racing® Sport Shifter and sport-tuned suspension with higher spring rates at each wheel.
A modified front suspension, featuring gas-filled hydraulic monotube shock absorbers, delivers a sportier ride, while the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) has been tuned for increased steering response. A large front stabilizer bar reduces body roll and improves handling and control on the curves.
When the road turns twisty and you want improved performance in the corners, Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) enhances vehicle stability and safety. It's standard on Turbo and Turbo R-Spec and uses the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors to detect understeer then initiates specifically programmed braking to provide precise cornering without compromising driving dynamics.
You'll be amazed by Veloster and Value Edition's 1.6L GDI engine. It's both strong and efficient, generating up to 132 horsepower and delivering up to an EPA-estimated 35 MPG Highway.
To charge a device, simply place a compatible smartphone on the wireless-charging interface located in the center console storage, recharging without the need for cables.
When you're carrying its high-tech key, Veloster will recognize you and unlock the vehicle with the push of a button on the driver's door. Once in the driver seat, one touch of the push button start brings the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine to life.
An alphabet soup of advanced safety features. We loaded Veloster with safety inside and out. Its Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system coordinates Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), plus the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist (BA) to create an integrated active safety system to help you avoid accidents.
Even our take on safety is extreme. Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System (OCS), high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system are all standard on Veloster. It's well above the average safety standard but then again there's nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Working in tandem with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the Traction Control System (TCS) limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels. This reduces the occurrence of wheelspin and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.
One of three elements in Veloster's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, ESC slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.
Enabling the driver to maintain confident control in difficult braking situations, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps balance braking forces at each wheel of the vehicle depending on the weight of the passengers and cargo that the vehicle is carrying.
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
Brake Assist (BA) helps detect emergency braking situations and ensures the maximum braking force is immediately applied to minimize stopping distances.
Make the most of your own personal safety features: your eyes and ears. When you engage reverse gear, the standard rearview camera sends a live feed to the 7-inch touchscreen in the center console. Superimposed guides aid in backing up while available rear parking sensors sound to help you avoid obstacles on the Veloster Turbo.
