Which Veloster does Edmunds recommend?

If you're looking at the Veloster, we're assuming you're exploring the sportier end of the hatchback spectrum. For that role, we recommend the R-Spec due to its turbocharged engine, sport-tuned suspension and standard summer performance tires. All are standout features in the class.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is fully redesigned. Hyundai made a variety of subtle changes to improve it compared to the first-generation Veloster, yet the car's signature design element continues to be its unique door configuration. Instead of being just another compact two-door hatchback, the Veloster has a single driver-side door and two passenger-side doors. That extra door makes carrying a third, or even fourth, passenger a piece of cake because there's no need for the contortions a typical passenger must go through in order to get into the rear seat of a coupe.

Power from either of the two available engines won't win any horsepower awards, but the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (201 hp, 195 lb-ft) is plenty sporty for this lightweight, sub-3,000-pound car. The new base engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, produces 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. It's enough to get the Veloster moving, but that's about it. Both engines come with a six-speed manual as standard. The base engine is available with a six-speed automatic, while the turbo engine can be paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

On the technology side, the new Veloster is better equipped. All versions get lane keeping assist, forward collision mitigation, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment. Some optional equipment on higher-trim vehicles include an 8-inch infotainment display, an Infinity eight-speaker audio system, automatic climate control, and wireless charging pad.

Overall, the 2019 Veloster fills a niche as a sporty and usable hatchback with good in-car technology and usability. Compared to the last Veloster, it's a more cohesive and comfortable car that performs better. Other compact hatchbacks, such as the Honda Civic and the Kia Forte5, feature more interior volume with similar levels of handling. But nothing else on the road offers the Veloster's unique three-door configuration.

2019 Hyundai Veloster configurations

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a three-door hatchback that seats four people. It is available in five trims. The base 2.0 model is well-equipped on tech features, while the next-up 2.0 Premium adds some luxury features. Both are powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four (147 hp, 132 lb-ft). The next three trims are powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four (201 hp, 195 lb-ft). The Turbo R-Spec adds performance features while keeping it simple. The Turbo adds safety and luxury features, while the Turbo Ultimate combines the best from both and adds even more luxury amenities.

The 2.0 model is the only Veloster variant that rides on 17-inch wheels. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but it can be optioned with a six-speed automatic. Since the 2.0 is the base car, all its features are standard on every other variant. These features include safety features such as a forward collision mitigation system, lane keeping assist and a rearview camera. The 7-inch infotainment system features standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Bluetooth, two USB ports and a six-speaker sound system.

Premium models add 18-inch wheels and come with the six-speed automatic transmission as standard. Also standard is additional safety equipment such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. In addition, standard luxury equipment includes a sunroof, automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a proximity entry system with push-button start. The infotainment system gets a boost as well thanks to an 8-inch display, Hyundai's Blue Link connected services, a standard wireless charging pad, and an eight-speaker Infinity audio system with satellite radio.

The Turbo R-Spec is our favorite of the line. It has the turbocharged engine, a standard six-speed manual transmission (the automatic isn't offered here), summer performance tires and a sport-tuned suspension. R-Spec equipment includes much of what you get with the 2.0 with bits of Premium intermixed throughout, such as the infotainment system, Blue Link connectivity, and the proximity entry system and push-button start. R-Spec specific items include LED headlights with high-beam assist, LED taillights and its own cloth seat design.

For the Veloster Turbo, Hyundai essentially takes the Premium and adds the turbocharged engine, the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and special interior trim. The Turbo Ultimate reverts back to a standard six-speed manual transmission, with the dual-clutch transmission as an option. It also comes with some luxury equipment, such as leather seating surfaces, a head-up display and a built-in navigation system. Also included is additional safety equipment encompassing a forward collision mitigation system that features pedestrian detection, automatic wipers, and adaptive cruise control for automatic transmission-equipped cars.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our first drive of the Hyundai Veloster R-Spec (turbo 1.6L inline-4 | 6-speed manual | FWD).

Driving

The Veloster's turbo engine is respectably strong, and the manual transmission works well. The automatic can occasionally be sluggish to downshift. In R-Spec trim, the Veloster feels responsive and connected around turns. This is a hatchback that no longer just looks quick; it's genuinely athletic.

Comfort

The seats and ergonomics are generally good for this class of car. We like the changes Hyundai made to the suspension, in particular, the independent rear suspension. The ride comfort of this car has improved.

Interior

Fit and finish is good for the class, and contrasting fabric and trim in the Turbo Ultimate and the R-Spec spice things up. The high level of standard in-car tech is easy to access and use.

Utility

With its funky three-door arrangement, the Veloster makes curbside passenger and cargo loading easy. Just make sure to duck since it's still essentially a low-roof coupe. The large hatch opening is deep but narrow. The rear seats fold down for even more space.

Technology

The optional Blue Link communications system allows owners to set speed alerts, check maintenance timing, lock and unlock doors, and even contact authorities in case of an accident, all through your smartphone. Standard smartphone connectivity is just about best-in-class.

Exactly what I wanted
Ron Fox,10/15/2018
This car gets left out of a lot of interesting comparisons for some reason. Maybe it's because Hyundai hasn't had the reputation like some of the other manufacturers, or because the third door puts it in between a sedan and a coupe. It doesn't matter, this is a really great car that I'm guessing most people won't find. I chose it over the Mazda 3 because for the same price, it had far more options, was more efficient and had way more pop on the throttle. I also felt that the interior quality was much higher particularly at the the joints and seams of the trim. The warranty was also out of this world. Actual driving usage puts this car much higher than EPA estimate MPG ratings. I routinely get 39mpg in mixed traffic on normal driving mode. Smart (eco) sees even higher efficiency numbers at the expense of acceleration. Sport mode is just a blast. I do not fully understand how to drive this car with the paddle shifters, however. This car is my commuter and provides great comfort for me (a larger guy) and enough room to comfortably fit (and access) a child seat in the back for morning school drop off. All of the doors shut with a very solid, sealing, "thunk" akin to german car manufacture and quality. The Inifinity stereo system is perfect in this car with a high degree of clarity across multiple genres of music and audio indications. Blind spot monitoring is far less spastic than other cars I've driven, maybe 10 -15' zone of interest rather than 40'. I think the thing that you're not going to see in a lot of these reviews is the fact that this car has absolute soul. When you sit in the driver seat, you feel in total control - completely connected to the car. You're in a cockpit designed to give the driver everything you need. Some of it is modern convenience. The rest of it is feel. I love the red accents, from the bottom air scoop in the front of the car to the seat trim, to the steering wheel. The leather is high quality, firm to the touch. The plastic (which gets highly criticized in reviews) on the door panels is hard and firm - it does not bend when you push it even in the broad areas. The DCT with the turbo provide instantaneous power when passing on a highway. I find myself still waiting for the downshift and still being surprised when it just happens without the delay. Android auto on the 8" touchscreen is great - you can actually split screen the thing to look at two things at once. The rear visibility is probably the worst thing about the car - on the highway it's not an issue, but backing out of my driveway, I feel like I can't see much. The backup camera does a great job of providing a broad field of view however, I'm just not used to it yet. Otherwise, I wish it had a built in garage door opener.
Awsome CAR FOR EVERYTHING
Jazmin Vasquez,10/02/2018
Great technology included, is very comfty, great storage. Smart car , love how easy and fun it is.
Get the hatch while it's hot!
Chris Holt,10/06/2018
Coming from a couple of Ford Focus models, first a Titanium then an ST. The Veloster turbo is a step down in power, but a very well tuned suspension and superior electronics, safety features, entertainment and nav system more than make up for a few missing ponies. Don't get me wrong, the Veloster still has enough power to be fun, but the ST was a beast. Steering is great, especially in sport mode and it holds corners very well. Sound system is excellent as is the nav. Driver information abounds and lane assist is actually really good, subtle corrections that seem more like a banked road than any sort of computerized assistance.
Love this 2.0 premium

2019 Hyundai Veloster videos

JONATHAN ELFALAN: All right, guys. Guess what I'm doing today. [MUSIC PLAYING] We're out here in beautiful Sacramento, California, at Thunderhill Raceway. And that is a 2019 a Hyundai Veloster N. It's what we call a hot hatch. What's a hot hatch? Well, it's the high-performance version of an economy hatchback. Makes sense? Hot hatch. So we love hot hatches because they blend the convenience and utility of a daily driver, but they have the speed and performance of a car that you can take to a racetrack, just like this one, bum around on a weekend and have a ton of fun. And lucky me, I get to do a little bit of that today. Now, the Veloster N, it's got some serious competition in this segment. For one, there's the Honda Civic Type R that not only makes 306 horsepower, but it's probably the best handling front-drive car that I've ever driven. Now, a little more upmarket, we have the Ford Focus RS as well as the Volkswagen Golf R. Both of which make a ton of horsepower and come standard with all-wheel drive. So what we're here to find out today is if this Veloster N can even be considered legitimate competition with that group. So we're going to answer that question for you today. But before we do, do us a favor and hit Subscribe. It's how we know that you want to keep seeing these videos that we're making. And if you want to read more about the Hyundai Veloster N, you can check out our first drive on edmunds.com. [MUSIC PLAYING] All right. So here we are driving the Hyundai Veloster N for the first time. Pretty excited to really sort this thing out. We're on a back road in northern California. It's a little rough. We're starting out in Normal mode, so all the normal settings. We have the suspension. It's a little softer. It's an adaptive suspension, so that it kind of changes with respect to the conditions. So if the road's bumpy, it might soften up a bit. When you drive faster, it might firm up a bit. The suspension feels pretty good. Compared to the base Veloster, it is a little bit stiffer, even if that base Veloster has a fixed suspension. If you are looking for a performance car that you can drive every day, so far, I don't see this being an issue, like the Ford Focus RS, which was way too stiff in any setting you put it. So we're going to go ahead and switch to a slightly sportier mode. So now we're in Sport mode. Just a little bit stiffer, and I'm getting a little bit more vertical movement. But beyond that, we have the N mode, which is essentially the most aggressive setting. Oh, man. Yeah, that's-- that's pretty stiff. I don't think I would be driving this in-- oh, man. I don't think I would be driving this in N mode on any public road with any sort of bumps in it. It's pretty stiff. So let's go ahead and switch that back to Normal mode. OK, so there's also an Eco mode. It doesn't really alter a lot of the suspension settings. It's primarily meant for fuel saving. So if you're driving just around town, or you're on a long trip, and you want to save some fuel, Eco mode is good for that because it just softens the profile of the accelerator. It's not quite as touchy. But with that said, you can still get on it. So you're not losing-- you're not losing any of that peak power. It's still there. You just have to dig a little deeper into the throttle. And there's a fifth mode called Custom, where you can mix and match all the systems. So if I want the most aggressive engine setting but the softest suspension setting, I can customize all of that. So the Veloster N, for now, only comes with a manual transmission. There are talks about bringing an automatic a couple of years out, but they haven't released any details about that. So the clutch in this car has been upgraded. It's got a stronger friction material, and the gearbox has also been reinforced. That can sometimes, when you're dealing with performance cars, cause the friction zone to be a little tricky. It might be hard to manage. That's not the case here. This clutch is really easy to modulate. And, yeah, I could totally see being able to drive this in traffic if I had to. We're on the optional, 19-inch Pirelli summer tires. The noise is manageable. It's not-- it's not a luxury car. So it doesn't have your luxury car levels of sound insulation. So if you don't want to deal with the level of road noise that may be present, it's got a pretty good stereo system. It's an Infinity system. It does a really good job of drowning out all that road noise. So you won't even notice it. I really like these seats. They've got slightly more aggressive bolstering because we have higher cornering loads because of the higher level of performance. And I could probably see myself being fairly comfortable in these seats for a while. Big thumbs up for seat comfort. Oh look, a sedan. So easy. Oh, look a coupe. So one thing that immediately separates the Veloster from all the other hatches has to be its three-door configuration. It's a coupe on the left and a sedan on the right. So as a driver, as you're walking up, you get the illusion of this very sleek and sporty two-door. But as a passenger getting in from the curb side, you have easier access to the rear seat. So you don't have to crawl through this small and uncomfortably narrow space. I guess it kind of works. Now, as far as differences between the Veloster N and the regular car, the gloss black grill with the N badge, as well as a slightly different spoiler, which if you didn't have the car side-by-side would be a little hard to make out. But by far the most distinctive change here has to be the red accents here that are red on every single color except red, where they're black. I'm not a huge fan of these red accents, but I can see why Hyundai went with them. They're very distinctive and make the car almost instantly noticeable. We also have these 19-inch wheels, which are optional but included in the Performance package, which, among other things, includes that nice 25-horsepower bump. As we come around to the rear here, we have the dual-element wing, which Hyundai says is functional. So it actually increases downforce at speed. We've got high-flow dual exhaust and very large exhaust tips that enter out on either side instead of the center like the base car. Red stripe detail again carries through the rear end. And I don't mind it here because you have the tail lights, which kind of match. So one of the best benefits of a hot hatch is the hatch. Compared to a regular sedan, you have a lot more space. You can lay the seats down flat if you have longer cargo to hold. Compared to other hatchbacks in this group, the Veloster doesn't have quite as much space. It's right around 20 cubic feet, whereas most others are anywhere from like 23 to 26. And it's because the Veloster has this rakish roofline that it gives up some of that volume. But hey, it looks good. So the cabin of the Veloster N isn't that much different from the standard car. It looks pretty similar kind of right on the surface level. There are some key differences. First off, you have the dual drive mode buttons here. You got one on the left that allows you to toggle through all the street modes, so Eco, Normal, and Sport. And then you've got one on the right with a race flag, which allows you to call up the most aggressive settings, the N settings, as well as anything that you may have programmed into the Custom setting. Some of the other key differences here, you have some N logos kind of throughout the cabin. You also have a blue-colored seat belt and some contrast stitching, which is a very nice touch. As far as overall cabin quality goes, I think the Veloster's cabin looks nice, but it's only when you start to put hands on surfaces that you begin to realize where Hyundai had to pull out a little bit of the cost. The dash, the door uppers, everything here is pretty much hard plastic. Again, if you're not touching it, it looks fine. It doesn't bother me. And I realize that's some of the trade-off that you have to make in order to get all that performance that's underneath the hood. As far as infotainment systems go, it's the same system. Touchscreen, very easy to use. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto are also included as standard on all these models. And as far as device integration, we have two convenient USB ports up here. We also have a 12-volt at 180 watts, your typical car charger, as well as an auxiliary input. As far as backseat space go, it's actually not that bad. I'm about 5' 9", so not especially tall, and I have a pretty good amount of knee clearance-- I'd say about a fifth's worth in between my knees and the hard seatback here. So if you're a long-legged person, and your knees are going to be touching, there's not a whole lot of, I guess, extra give here because it's a hard seatback. Now, in terms of headroom, the Veloster has a really cool silhouette. And so you're not going to have the type of headroom that you would normally have in a much more traditionally shaped hatch. As far as passengers go, this is a true four-seater. You're not going to squeeze five people back here, because right in the middle, you have a hard, plastic cup holder and bin space. So two cup holders here, a little space for phones and stuff. We're also missing a center armrest here, so your passengers, although they have decent amount of space, there's not a whole lot of extra comfort back here. [MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: All right! JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah. Sounds awesome. All right, now we're getting after it. Here we are, first hot lap in the Veloster N. Let's see what this thing has. [TIRES SQUEELING] [CHUCKLES] [ENGINE REVVING] Oh, yeah. Good corner exit power. Getting hard on the brakes here. You've got a more aggressive track pad here that's available as an accessory and feels good. Good brake feel. This car, through the sweepers, this car just stays nice and flat. It's really planted. I'm stuck behind a little bit of traffic. [TIRES SQUEELING] [TIRES SQUEELING] Yeah, very, very nicely controlled here. [TIRES SQUEELING] [LAUGHS] Oh, that-- I just saw a wheel lift in front of me. That's awesome. We're not even-- I don't feel like we're even going that crazy. We're still maybe about 80% of the speed. But already the wheels lifting, which is an indication that we have really good body stiffness. Hyundai has put extra effort into putting more welds, more reinforcements to make sure that this body is as stiff as it can be. And it's showing right here. Oh, man. The shift light is also very helpful. So every time we go for an up shift-- [POP] You hear that? That's a little bit of backfire on the overrun, and that's part of the design. It really adds to the character, the sporty character of this car. So every time you lift the throttle, every time you're going for an upshift, it's really that pop and crackle that's just so satisfying. You just want to keep doing it. They were trying for maximum peak power. They wanted a very flexible power band, which means that the engine makes power over a wide range in RPM. And I could feel that. Like on that last quarter, I was maybe a gear too high. Again, I'm trying to work out how the gears are on this track. But it was able-- it had the torque from a low RPM that really just sort of pulled me out of the corner. I think I was supposed to be at a cool-down lap. SPEAKER 1: Oh, yeah? [LAUGHS] JONATHAN ELFALAN: I think I was too excited. Oh, man we're going in already. Woo! That was fun. So we just got off the track in the Veloster N, and that was our first time out in the car on this track. And from what I can say, oh, my god. This car is amazing. We only had about four laps, which was not enough. I'm really looking forward to getting a little bit more track time. So let's see if I can sneak in right here. All right. So here is a lap around the autocross. [ENGINE REVVING] [TIRES SQUEELING] [POP] [TIRES SQUEELING] [POP] [TIRES SQUEELING] Little bumpy here. So far, so good. [TIRES SQUEELING] [ENGINE REVVING] Little bit of understeer. I know. I mean, pretty tight. [ENGINE REVVING] [TIRES SQUEELING] [ENGINE REVVING] [TIRES SQUEELING] [TIRES SQUEELING] Woo! Well, that was fun. All right, so now that we've had some seat time in the Veloster and out at the track, here at the auto cross and out of the street, we can say that it is a phenomenal handling car. It's comfortable enough that you could drive it daily. And it may not be the fastest car, but it's not trying to be, and it's got plenty of speed for you to enjoy and have fun with every day. So Hyundai hasn't yet released final pricing, but they're estimating it to start at around $28,000, $30,000 if you want the Performance package, which is a heck of a lot of car for 30k. The Veloster's closest competition at this price is the Honda Civic Type R at $36,000. Now, I'm not saying that that's not worth it. But I kind of like the styling of the Veloster a little more. It's a little more understated, not as "look at me" like the Honda Civic. So don't get me wrong. The Honda Civic Type R is still an incredible value. But if you're someone looking for maximum bang for the buck, then the Veloster N is going to be hard to beat. I had a blast here today. Thanks for watching. We'll see you next time. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Hyundai Veloster vs. the competition

2019 Hyundai Veloster

2018 Fiat 500

2018 Fiat 500

Hyundai Veloster vs. Fiat 500

Compared to the Fiat 500 Abarth, the Hyundai's larger footprint and better suspension allow it to ride smoother on the street, without compromising handling for when the road gets twisty. Its slightly larger engine produces over 40 more horsepower, while getting nearly identical fuel economy. The Veloster is also a lot bigger and easier to live with on the inside.

Compare Hyundai Veloster & Fiat 500 features

Hyundai Veloster vs. Mini Hardtop 2-Door

The Mini Cooper S may make more torque, but the Veloster's 1.6-liter turbocharged engine makes more horsepower. And if usability is a priority, the Veloster beats the Cooper's interior volume and rear-seat space. The Mini does offer more customizability, options and accessories, but it's also more expensive.

Compare Hyundai Veloster & Mini Hardtop 2-Door features

Hyundai Veloster vs. Ford Fiesta

The Veloster R-Spec and Fiesta ST are close competitors. They make similar amounts of power and have identical fuel economy, although the Veloster weighs about 100 more pounds. Thanks to the Fiesta's true four-door platform, rear-seat passengers do get more room, although the Veloster still wins out on overall cargo space.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Hyundai Veloster?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
