The 2018 Hyundai Veloster has finally been added to the list of upcoming vehicles for this upcoming season. The model has been awaited for a time now and an eagerly awaited update was in the books. The time has finally come and the long wait is over as we are about to get the model in just a couple of months.
This model was introduced for the fist time in 2011 and was a car which was made available in order to substitute the Tiburon coupe. The Velstoer is a car which initially managed to gain its popularity as being a perfect budge compact coupe by also having hatchback practicality and usefulness. The model has a distinctive styling known to itself, an efficient engine choice and lots of equipment that you get for the money that you pay for. But the past models were criticized for the low power it managed to produce in its base form.
The first year generation model has been around for a while now and it was high time for it to receive a mid-cycle facelift. This model is actually far of being a significant improving form the previous model but still manages to hold a pretty nice offer compared to the capabilities it has. The update manages to come off as disappointing in some case as the car which has been on the market for a long time and has been begging for an update. In some way, the model might have gotten a large offer particularly as the models in the segment it is facing include the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, so the car was bound for a better offer. Keep reading and find out more in the review.
2018 Hyundai Veloster Release date and price
The 2018 Hyundai Velsoter remains one of the more cost effective vehicles in the market. The offered equipment and more or less everything that you get with the car is enough to keep you satisfied and it is particularly so as you get to for a price of $18,000 to around $18,500. The release date of the car is scheduled for the later part of the year as we are getting an early release for this model.
The 2018 Hyundai Veloster has received a mild update to its exterior which is also the case with its Turbo version. Both were kept pretty much the same with only a handful of changes which distinguish them from each other. The changes that have happened include a new modified hood design which manages to use the faux vents that were seen on the previous model. The front end receives a slightly larger grille which is now surrounded with grey tone.
The standard wheel choices are the new 17-inch wheels. There is also an optional choice which comes in the form of 18-inch wheels which come with wrapped in 10 mm wider tires. Everything else is virtually identical as the Velsoter transfers a lot of the exterior parts from before. One thing that we are actually happy of seeing is the “Fluidic Sculpture” styling which was introduced back in 2012 and is still a part of the vehicle’s design. This Hyundai Veloster 2018 is a hatchback which will help you stand out in a crowd.
Interior Changes & Photos
More of the same is seen on the interior of the 2018 Hyundai Velsoter as they fail to introduced a greater update on the inside as well. The car has been transferred from before even on the inside and the only noticeable update are the optional black seats with yellow accents which are accompanied by the new and improved tech support for the car.
The revised infotainment system adds some new features to it which include a 7-inch color touchscreen, HD Radio, Apple Siri Eyes Free and SiriusXM with Travel Link. The next generation Blue Link system is also a fine upgrade for the users. The updated features also add a remote start feature, remote door lock/unlock, Google destination search and stolen vehicle recovery. You can also get a one year’s worth Blue Link Connected Care as it offers you SOS emergency assistance, automatic collision notification and enhanced roadside assistance.
The powertrain of the 2018 Hyundai Veloster keeps the engine intact. The model continues with its use of the 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine which is still able to produce 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque with a six-speed manual transmission. By using a EcoShift dual-clutch transmission the output can come to 132 ponies and 120 pound-feet of torque. This brings the EPA ratings to 26 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined with the manual transmission and 28 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 31 mpg combined with the automatic. The 0-60 mph acceleration is measured at more than 8 seconds.
