Hyundai Veloster MK2 Turbo
Hyundai unveiled the second generation Veloster Turbo at the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
The car was fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine producing 201hp (150kw) and 265 Nm of torque. Engine tuning maximizes low- and mid-range torque, for optimum acceleration under daily driving conditions. The engine was paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) with steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters. The second generation Veloster features Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) utilizing capabilities from the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and powertrain control systems. Further, Veloster Turbo features a quicker-ratio steering rack and a revised steering calibration to match, which gives drivers precise cornering, feedback and control. The car is 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. In addition, all Veloster Turbo features Active Sound Design, which enhances intake and exhaust powertrain sound character inside the cabin for a more visceral driving experience, especially during spirited driving. Turbo models also offer three selectable driving modes, including Normal, Sport and Smart, according to driver preferences for engine, transmission and steering feel.
On the exterior, the second generation Veloster features a muscular and sporty design, combining coupe and hatchback lines, with an asymmetrical two-plus-one door configuration. At the back, we find a glass hatch and center fascia dual chrome exhaust tips. 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.
