  2. This week, we test drove ‘Hot Hatch’ from Hyundai. We had so much fun with 2019 Hyundai Veloster N. Is N good enough against Honda Civic Type-R and Golf GTi? If you haven’t you have to learn how to drive manual, because it is so much fun! With 2.0L turbo and 6 speed short throw shifter, it was a blast, let's meet the Veloster N. https://youtu.be/UU0W2FO2ISw 2019 Hyundai Veloster N -2.0T: 275hp (6,000rpm) / 260lb.ft.

    2019 Hyundai Veloster

    New 3 door car is here. http://www.motortrend.com/news/2019-hyundai-veloster-priced/ Hyundai has released pricing for the 2019 Veloster, with the base model equipped with the standard six-speed manual starting at $19,385 including destination. The Veloster Turbo starts at $23,785 for the R-Spec trim, which comes only with the manual. All Veloster models now come with an independent suspension setup all around. Standard equipment on the base Veloster includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a rearview camera and two USB ports. Moving up to the Premium grade adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, heated front seats, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, a sunroof, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, blind spot warning, automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The base Veloster and Veloster Premium are powered by a 2.0-liter I-4 with 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque paired to either a six-speed manual or for an extra $1,000, a six-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings are 25/33 mpg city/highway for the stick and 27/34 mpg for the automatic. Moving up to the Veloster Turbo R-Spec gets you all the standard features from the Veloster Premium and builds on it with high beam assist and LED low beam headlights but loses the sunroof and blind spot warning. Moving up to the Turbo model with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic does give you back those features plus rear cross-traffic alert and lumbar adjustment for the driver seat. The range-topping turbo Ultimate is the only one available with a two-tone roof, full leather upholstery, a head-up display, built-in navigation, and adaptive cruise control if yo opt for the automatic. The most expensive Veloster model, the automatic-equipped Turbo Ultimate, rings in at $29,035. Turbo variants come with their own unique suspension and steering calibrations, and an active sound enhancer that pipes in engine sounds through the speakers. Manual-equipped Turbo models comes standard with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer performance tires while automatic-equipped ones make do with all-season rubber. Under the hood of the Veloster Turbo is an updated 1.6-liter turbo-four with 201 hp and 195 lb-ft, and an overboost feature that increases torque to 202 lb-ft for a short time. EPA fuel economy ratings for the Veloster Turbo are 26/33 mpg with the six-speed manual and 28/34 mpg with the automatic. Hyundai hasn’t released pricing for the range-topping Veloster N yet, which is expected to arrive before the end of 2018. Like the i30N in other markets, the Veloster N is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four with up to 275 hp and 260 lb-ft. It comes exclusively with a six-speed manual with automatic rev matching. Adaptive dampers also come standard and an optional Performance package adds an electronically controlled mechanical limited-slip differential and 19-inch alloy wheels shod in Pirelli P-Zero summer performance tires specific to Hyundai’s N cars.

  4. Hyundai has unveiled the Veloster C3 Roll Top Concept at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, adding to the unique design of the Korean coupe. According to the Hyundai, C3 stands for "Convertible 3-door". The concept features a automatically retracting canvas-top in place of the center section of the roof and a rear tailgate which flips down like a printer's tray. Hyundai has also designed a latch at the rear compartment for securing a bicycle with the tailgate opened. On the new concept, Hyundai commented, "In convertible mode with the top rolled back, the C3 is a free spirit for driving along the Pacific Coast Highway. Roll the top forward, open the tailgate, fold the rear seats and the C3 goes into recreation mode - perfect for surfing, biking or kayaking." The C3 concept has a blackened front grille, orange-coloured side mirrors, 18-inch alloy rims in different shades for the front and back wheels. The front leather seats come with red trimmings at the supportive areas. "We were inspired by the proverb 'A rolling stone gathers no moss", explained Chris Chapman, chief designer of Hyundai Design North America. "The Veloster C3 Roll Top concept offers the 'no strings attached' freedom of a roll top convertible and customizable utility that fits an everyday to a play day dual lifestyle."

    Hyundai chooses DCTs over CVTs

    When it comes to automatic transmissions, four speed auto transmissions are fast getting replaced with more advanced auto transmissions. More automakers are introducing six, seven and even eight speed automatic transmission into their vehicles nowadays. These introductions are made mainly for fuel efficiency reasons, to get more kilometres out of their fuel consumption usage. But, there are also some automakers such as Nissan, who are moving towards the usage of continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). But that is not the case for Hyundai as the Korean automaker has preferred dual clutch transmissions over continuously variable transmissions. Mike O
  6. [extract] A fabulous feature of the new Hyundai Veloster is its one-and-a-half sized sunroof, which gives your head a little breathing room in the rakishly-shaped car. However, this feature has turned out to be a nightmare for certain owners as they experienced an earth-shattering phenomenon literally. The US National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) is conducting investigations over complaints on the Veloster
  7. The Hyundai Veloster (pictured above) has just been released recently and it is one fine looking hatchback. And for those who craves for more power, there is a turbo version (pictured below). There are rumours going around that Hyundai is working on a more powerful version of the Veloster and it would put the car in the hot hatch category with the likes of the Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus ST. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo shares many parts with the normal Veloster model (for example, same suspension set-up) and some believed that Hyundai has left the Veloster Turbo in this manner to make way for more improvements. The Veloster Turbo currently delivers around 186bhp with roughly 265Nm of torque. Pretty good from a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine. If these rumours are to be true, we should expect an upgrade in suspension set-up, preferably with mechanically adjustable dampeners and independent rear suspension instead of the current V-beam rear set-up. A lower ride would make sense if the car is going to get more power. As for the engine, I am not really sure if more power could be extracted out from the current 1.6-litre turbocharged engine. One option is to feature the 2.0-litre engine from the Hyundai Genesis Coupe which is able to deliver around 274bhp and with 373Nm of torque (with premium unleaded fuel). But it is not known if this option would be financially feasible for the company. Maybe it is still possible to extract a bit more power from the current 1.6-litre powerplant. The Veloster Turbo has just reached our shores and I feel that this is the type of car local consumers would like to take a much closer look at; reasonable engine displacement size with a rather powerful engine. And a more powerful version could probably take on the continental hatchbacks that has dominated the hot hatch segment for many years. Photo credit: Net Car Show

    Should Hyundai bridge it

    The funkiest Hyundai to date, the Veloster is here in Singapore. But sad to say, the performance failed to match its good looks. Powered by a 138bhp 1.6-litre Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, the Veloster is only about 10 bhp more than the 1.6-litre MPI engine found in the Elantra. It sprints leisurely to 100km/h in a leisurely 10.3 seconds. Even a mundane looking VW Jetta 1.4-litre TSI can leave the Veloster behind. But fear not, for there is a super-hot 1.6 Turbo-GDI version of the Veloster, which is good for 201 bhp. Coupled with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, the forced-induction coupe completes the century sprint in a quick 7.5 seconds. The Veloster seemed to go from mildly spicy in the non-turbo form to extremely spicy in the turbo variant. Is there room for something in-between? I believe there is. Just like the VW Golf, there is a base 122bhp version, a mid-range 160bhp
  9. [extract] Hyundai has unveiled the European specced Veloster Turbo at Geneva. This turbocharged version of the quirky Veloster brings a little more power to the car that has all the styling of speed but saddled with only 140 horses from its normally aspirated 1.6-litre engine. With the application of a turbocharger, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo makes 183bhp and about 270Nm torque. Good for the affordable single rear door coupe to have a 0-100km/h time of 8.4seconds compared to the 9.7seconds of the 1180kg normally aspirated car. - The normally aspirated Veloster- This is actually an affordable fastback cum coupe for the masses but unfortunately for us over here, Hyundai has not even brought in the normally aspirated model pictured above. The right hand drive variant has been launched early 2011 and it is already being sold in the UK and Australia. This brings us to the problem of affordability
  10. Hyundai Motor Group has finally presented its highly anticipated Gamma 1.6 T-GDI petrol and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engines. The presentation was made during the 11th Hyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference that takes place from 19 October to 20 October at the Rolling Hills Hotel, located near the Hyundai-Kia Motors R&D Center in Korea. The 1.6-liter 4 cylinder unit uses a twin-scroll turbocharger along with an air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT to produce a maximum output of 204 hp at 6000 rpm with a peak torque of 265Nm at 1750 rpm. These figures will vary according to the market and application. The engine meets California
