A Hatchback with Flare: The 2019 Hyundai Veloster
Performance, hatchback, and affordability are three qualities that typically do not go together in the auto world. However, the Hyundai brand is bucking the trend with its new 2019 Hyundai Veloster, a performance hatchback that won’t break the bank. If you’re looking for new Hyundai cars near Champaign, IL, that fit the profile of a compact hatchback with some flare, head over to our Hyundai dealership near Bloomington, IL, and see this new model for yourself.
Available in five trims, the Hyundai Veloster gives you options when it comes to driving features and capability. The two bottom trims come standard with a new 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine capable of putting out 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. This is paired with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. The higher Hyundai Veloster Turbo trims, however, come with an upgraded turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower. All trims come standard with front-wheel drive and either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels. Although it is a compact car, it provides 109.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the back row of seats folded, giving you the versatility you expect from a hatchback. Explore this flexibility in person with your local Hyundai dealers in Normal, IL.
Safety and Special Features
Although the Hyundai Veloster is a one-of-a-kind vehicle, it maintains the focus on safety that’s become synonymous with the Hyundai brand. Cutting-edge safety features like forward-collision avoidance system, lane-keep assistance, and driver-attention warning come standard. Higher trims come with advanced features like rear cross-traffic alert with pedestrian detection.
When it comes to entertainment and tech features, the Hyundai Veloster is a standout. All trims come with either a seven-inch or eight-inch touchscreen display, and the highest Hyundai Veloster Turbo Ultimate trim also features navigation. The Bluetooth® hands-free phone system comes standard, as does Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. SiriusXM® radio and HD radio are available on higher trims, and you can play your music through the available Infinity premium audio system, which includes eight speakers and a subwoofer.
