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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Hyundai Veloster

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - January 10, 2020
  • 2020 Veloster available; 2019s sold out
  • Cash: Up to $2,000 bonus cash
  • Finance: From 2.9% APR + $500 cash
  • Lease: From $179 per month for 36 months

Hyundai’s sporty compact hatchback:

Following a one-year hiatus, the current-generation Hyundai Veloster rolls out for its second year. The changes for this year include the manual transmission is no longer available on the Turbo Ultimate trim level. Gloss black exterior trim replaces the previous flat back. The other changes involve equipment offerings.

The current offers are in place through February 3, 2020. There is always a chance we'll see an update ahead of time, so please check back.

Retail bonus cash offers:

Choose the 2020 Veloster and you'll find $1,500 retail bonus cash for the standard model. If you prefer the Veloster N, you'll receive $500.

Hyundai also kicks in $500 in finance bonus cash, bringing your potential savings to $2,000 ($1,000 for the Veloster N).

Competitive financing is available:

Customers can purchase a 2020 Veloster and finance one through Hyundai Motor Finance. Here, Hyundai offers 2.9-percent APR financing for up to 60 months or 3.9-percent APR financing for 72 months.

Hyundai sweetens this deal with $500 in finance cash, funds you'll apply to your down payment.

Lease offers for your consideration:

Hyundai offers two lease deals with the 2020 Veloster. Lease a base model with the manual transmission and you’ll pay $179 for 36 months. With $2,299 down, your effective monthly cost is $243. This is a fair offer for the current model.

You can also lease a Veloster N, paying $419 per month for 36 months with $2,299 down. Your effective monthly cost comes in at $483, which is nearly double that of the base model. This isn’t a good offer, but we're not surprised.

Hyundai allows 10,000 miles per year for leases and charges a $400 disposition fee at lease end.

Now in its second year after being all new for the 2019 model year, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster only gets minor changes. The six-speed manual transmission is no longer an option on the Turbo Ultimate trim. Both the Turbo and Turbo Ultimate trims get wireless charging as part of their standard equipment. Lastly, the Turbo R-Spec gets rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring as standard.

These changes are exactly revolutionary, and they don’t do much to improve the Veloster’s recipe, but the little hatchback doesn’t need much. It’s still as quirky as ever, standing out on the market thanks to its three-door design, its Veloster N guise that's a rip to drive, and it being an excellent value proposition when you consider its standard equipment.

Choosing Your Hyundai Veloster

Hyundai offers the Veloster in six trims: 2.0, 2.0 Premium, Turbo R-Spec, Turbo, N, and Turbo Ultimate. Pricing starts at $19,520 including destination for the base 2.0 and goes up to $29,070 for the Turbo Ultimate.

Engine Choices

Every Hyundai Veloster is offered with a four-cylinder engine, though three different versions are available. While the Veloster N's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is the clear choice if you want performance, it’s the 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder that'll be the happy medium for the majority of consumers.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L 4-Cylinder147 hp132 lb-ft30 mpg
1.6L Turbo 4-Cylinder201 hp195 lb-ft30 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder250 hp260 lb-ft25 mpg

Front-wheel drive is standard throughout the range, while all-wheel drive isn't available. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the 2.0, Turbo R-Spec, and Veloster N. A six-speed automatic is standard on the 2.0 Premium, and available for $1,000 on the 2.0. Turbo and Turbo Ultimate models come with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Velosters can seat up to four in a 2+2 layout. With the sloping roofline and short wheelbase, cargo capacity isn’t exactly stellar in the hatchback. With the rear seats in place, the Veloster has 19.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the seats down and that opens up to 44.5 cubic feet.

Those numbers trail the Volkswagen Golf and the sporty Golf GTI, which offer 22.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats and a total of 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

Safety Features

For an affordable hatchback, the Veloster comes with a good list of standard safety features. Forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, and automatic emergency braking are standard.

Moving up to the 2.0 Premium brings blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. If you want more features, you have to go all the way to the range-topping Turbo Ultimate trim to get forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control as standard.

Connectivity

A 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a 3.5-inch display in the instrument cluster are standard. Higher trims come with an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, voice recognition, Hyundai’s Blue Link system, wireless charging, and a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display.

Extra standard connectivity features that are only found on the Turbo Ultimate include a head-up display, Hyundai Blue Link Guidance, an HD radio, and navigation. These features are all standard on the trim.

2.0 - From $19,520

Automatic LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, and 17-inch wheels are standard on the Veloster 2.0. The interior features a six-way adjustable driver’s seat and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

2.0 Premium - From $23,720

The 2.0 Premium comes with 18-inch wheels and a sunroof. The most noticeable differences are on the inside, as the trim comes with heated front seats, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, automatic temperature control, and remote keyless entry with push-button start.

Turbo R-Spec - From $24,070

The Turbo R-Spec is the most affordable trim to come with the turbocharged engine. Performance wise, it comes with stickier Michelin tires. Other extra standard features include LED taillights, unique cloth upholstery, and alloy pedals.

Turbo - From $26,370

The Veloster Turbo comes with power-adjustable lumbar support, an auto-defogging windshield, and a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

N - From $28,320

As the sportiest model in the family, the N comes with a rev-matching feature, torque vectoring control, drive mode select, sport-tuned steering, high-performance summer tires, adaptive suspension, and a more aggressive body kit. The interior has bespoke sport seats.

Buyers can increase the N's abilities with the $2,100 Performance Package. It adds 19-inch wheels, a variable exhaust system, a limited-slip differential, Pirelli performance tires, and larger brakes. Power is also increased to 275 hp.

Turbo Ultimate - From $29,070

Over the Turbo trim, the range-topping Turbo Ultimate brings a two-tone roof and leather upholstery, on top of the aforementioned safety and connectivity features.

CarsDirect Tip

Fun, affordable, and well equipped, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster is more than just an entry-level compact vehicle. With the stylish exterior, not going with the turbocharged engine seems like a crime, especially as it gets the same fuel economy as the non-turbo base motor.
