    Expert Rating

    3.1 (Good)
    26 City / 33 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2019 Hyundai Veloster OVERVIEW

    After sitting out last year, Hyundai's sporty hatchback returns with aggressive new looks, enhanced technology, and a more powerful base engine. The Veloster's defining characteristic — its clever three-door layout — carries into the latest generation.

    What's New for 2019

    The 2019 Hyundai Veloster has been completely redesigned.

    Choosing Your Hyundai Veloster

    Although its basic shape hasn't changed, the Veloster displays more creases and sharper angles, along with a prominent rear spoiler. Once again, the passenger side features a full-size rear door for easy access to the rear seat and cargo area, which has grown considerably. The Veloster can handle 19.9 cubic feet of stuff, or a surprising 44.5 cubic feet with the seat folded. This makes it just as practical as some conventional hatchbacks.

    A 2.0-liter four-cylinder serves as the new base engine, delivering 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. With the standard six-speed manual transmission, the Veloster is EPA-rated at 25 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 28 combined. The optional six-speed automatic transmission bumps efficiency to 27/34/30 mpg (city/highway/combined).

    Performance fans will be more interested in the carryover 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, which pumps out 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged engine comes with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. EPA ratings are 26/33/29 mpg with the manual, and 28/34/30 mpg with the automatic.

    Engine and transmission availability vary by trim level, of which there are five:


    Priced from $19,385 (all prices include the $885 destination charge), the base Veloster 2.0 carries the 2.0-liter engine and 17-inch wheels, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, and a six-speaker infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. The six-speed automatic can be added for $1,000. There are no additional options or packages available for the Veloster on any trim level, except for a small assortment of dealer-installed accessories.

    2.0 Premium

    The $23,635 2.0 Premium model comes standard with the automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, and a large bundle of upgrades. All models get a sunroof, automatic climate control, heated front seats, a keyless ignition, proximity key entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The infotainment system gains a wireless charging pad, satellite radio, an eight-inch touchscreen, and an eight-speaker Infinity audio system.

    Turbo R-Spec

    The Veloster Turbo R-Spec, which starts at $23,785, gets the turbocharged engine, a sport-tuned suspension, summer performance tires, full LED exterior lighting, high beam assist, a unique grille and rear spoiler, dual exhaust outlets, alloy pedals, and Turbo R-Spec-badged cloth upholstery. The six-speed manual is the only transmission offered. The Turbo R-Spec carries some of the 2.0 Premium's infotainment upgrades, but is otherwise equipped like the base 2.0.


    For $26,285, the Veloster Turbo combines the turbocharged engine with all the comfort and convenience features of the 2.0 Premium. The interior receives special trim, and the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard. The Turbo model also adds Hyundai's Drive Mode Select system, exterior mirror-mounted turn signals, a perforated leather steering wheel, and power lumbar adjust for the driver's seat.

    Turbo Ultimate

    The top-of-the-line Veloster Turbo Ultimate starts at $27,535 with the turbocharged engine and the manual transmission. The seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic reverts to option status ($1,500), bringing the starting price up to $29,035. The Turbo Ultimate also adds leather seats, navigation, a head-up display, a two-tone roof, rain-sensing wipers, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control.

    CarsDirect Tip

    With the base engine, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster is more about looks than actual performance. To get both, an upgrade to a Turbo model is in order. The Turbo R-Spec is the most entertaining of the lot, but its firm suspension and lack of an automatic transmission option limit its appeal as a daily driver.
