While we are waiting for the new second-generation Veloster to hit the market, rumors about novelties for the second production year have been circulating around already. This interesting coupe or, more precisely, Kkammback originally came in 2010. Eight years later, the company has prepared a complete redesign, which brings a lot of novelties in all aspects. The second-generation model is about to hit the market pretty soon and latest reports suggest interesting novelties for the 2020 Hyundai Veloster, which will represent the second production year, as well. It looks like we are about to see a completely new body style in the offer.
Considering that the 2020 Hyundai Veloster will represent the second production year of the new second-generation model, it would be irrational to expect bigger novelties. The familiar Kammback is coming with a completely new styling, which adopts the brand’s newest design language, which brings a much sharper approach. All these changes make the new model much better looking. Still, that’s not all. The 2020 Hyundai Veloster is about to come with one big novelty. We are about to see a completely new, the Veloster convertible. So far, this model was available only as a “Kammback”. So, it will be quite interesting to see how the new roadster will look like. Expect a soft, fabric material, though some reports even suggest a Targa roof which, to be honest, doesn’t sound very likely.
This is the aspect where we won’t see changes, despite the new version. Both body styles will feature the same interior layout, though the convertible will be a little bit tighter, which seems natural. Other than that, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster will continue with the same cabin design, which seems good, though there are some areas that feature pretty cheap plastic and other low-quality materials. This is one of the weakest points of the Veloster, especially if we consider that this segment includes models like Honda Civic, which offers spectacular interior quality for the class. When comparing these two models, the Civic is superior in all aspects.
There will be three engines in the offer for 2020 Hyundai Veloster. Base models will continue with a reliable but older-generation 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four, which is good for about 147 horsepower. Higher trims come with a modern, 2.0-liter turbo inline-four with 201 horsepower. This engine seems like a perfect measure, thanks to a good balance between power and overall efficiency. Still, we must say that most rivals actually feature better mpg ratings. Finally, there is a performance, N model to come, with 275 horsepower.
2020 Hyundai Veloster Release Date and Price
Considering the new convertible version, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster could come a little bit earlier. Still, we are pretty sure that the company will stick to the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, the “Komeback “goes between $18,500 and $28,000. The new convertible should fit in this range as well.
