Exclusive: Hyundai Veloster Facelift Details

by Oct 28, 2014All News, Hyundai, Spy Shots2 comments

Recently we heard some rumors regarding some of the many changes the Hyundai Veloster facelift will receive.

For a rumor, we feel this info is really accurate in either one or more points we mention below, to start with we were giving February 2015 for beginning production (the car will debut during the 2015 Detroit AutoShow or 2015 Chicago AutoShow).

Now here it comes the most details information of this rumor:

  • Turbo model will receive a new colour trim for interior and orange trim would be one of those.
  • Front bumper grill will have a silver trim instead of the body color. For this we are thinking they are refering to the 2.0 Fluidic Design grill.
  • Turbo will have a new 7 speed DCT transmission. This transmission was initially shown at the 2014 Paris autoshow married with the Gamma 1.4-litre T-GDI, engine given to the concept model i30 CNG.
  • Improvement on driving comfort, NVH and Ride & Handling as well. We will also find the now common “Flex Steer” on the Veloster.
  • Tires specs will change, we now find a slightly wider 225/40R.
  • HID headlamps will be included.
  • Interestingly, the hood garnish will now be deleted. I’m sure a lot of people will be glad and others mad they didnt make it functional.
  • Sporty buckets seats will be for Turbo model.

This is the most current information we have so far for the facelift Veloster, we know the Veloster didn’t do so well in other countries and for some the Veloster has disappear, hopefully this new changes will raise the Veloster sales and bring it back to the other markets in the year 2017, with the second generation model.

    The reason that the Veloster has faltered is simple. Hyundai designed it to be a cheap, mediocre car. One has to remember that the Veloster’s underpinnings were made from scavenged parts off the previous gen Accent and we all know that was a real World beater NOT!

    I test drove the Veloster a few years back having bought into all the hype and cheerleading by then North American, Hyundai CEO, John Krafick (he was quite the Hyundai salesman!) and was really disappointed by the car’s lackluster steering and hobbled suspension. The Veloster in the very beginning could have been so much better packaged and priced than the half-baked, warmed over pug that couldn’t do much of anything right. Not fuel efficent. Check. Shoddy steering and handling. Check. Under performing engines and anemic turbo. Check. Over priced. Check.

    Hopefully, Velsoter version 2.0 addresses all of the above issues mentioned afflicting the current model and get ready for this…and Hyundai leads a segment for once! Is it possible for Hyundai? Can Hyundai finally decide that they can lead a segment rather than merely be “competitive” much like the new Sonata. Here’s hoping that the second gen Veloster is much, much more than that.

    If the info is true than the powertrain is the same as Sonata ECO…So I guess Hyundai/Kia will put this in many of their lineup.
