Hyundai finalizes the preparations of what will be the second generation of its Veloster model, a car that was launched on the market in 2011 and that returns with an idea similar to the one used at that time: a compact body and coupe with asymmetric configuration of the doors . In the absence of its presentation, we will have to settle for this colorful Hyundai video in South Korea and some camouflaged photos of the vehicle.
According to Carscoops , the model will be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show and will have similar dimensions to those of the previous Veloster. According to the same information, the Korean designers have placed more emphasis on the elimination of some of the most peculiar elementsthat the car had.
The new Veloster includes a larger front grille with a more aggressive design and straight lines than the previous one, incorporating LED lights and new vertical air intakes under the headlights. In the rear, we still have the coupé characteristic fall of the model and a few steps wide rear wheel .
In the mechanical section, the sources cited say that the model will use two turbocharged petrol engines of 1.4 and 1.6 liters along with a dual-clutch automatic transmission and 7 speeds (the 1.6 would also have 6-ratio manual), although It remains to be seen if these engines will reach our country or if an unpublished diesel version will also be included.
On the other hand, it is expected to include three different driving modes , including a Sport mode with better acceleration and faster changes.
The same sources affirm that the model counts in the South Korean market with elements like Head-Up Display , adaptive cruise control, emergency braking system , automatic change of short and long lights or rail maintenance system among others. To know all the final details we must wait for the North American fair, since it will be among the novelties of the Detroit Show .
