A small budget and a small appetite don’t mean setting small expectations. The small-car market is crowded with pricey sports cars and luxury sedans on one end and a familiar selection of “economy” cars on the other.   

But the 2019 Hyundai Veloster for sale in New Bern fills a particular void by offering a large dose of fun packed into a compact frame. Here’s a first look at the big things behind this small car.

2019 Hyundai Veloster: Thinking Big

Design

The strong roofline and wheel openings give the Hyundai Veloster an aggressive, muscular stance not typically found in its class of cars while LED daytime running lights and a rear spoiler further distinguish it from its peers. The Veloster’s trademark “hidden” third door remains, giving the car the appearance of a two-door coupe while at the same time allowing for some sneaky convenience to the rear row.

Interior

The inside of the Veloster has evolved from the 2018 model to give increased front leg room and rear headroom for drivers and passengers. And the suite of standard features — Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Bluetooth®, rearview camera, and a color touchscreen to name just a few — exceed one’s expectations at the Veloster’s price point.

Meanwhile, available features like an 8-inch touchscreen, remote starting, leather seats, wireless charging, and climate control can make you quickly forget what class of car you’re supposedly driving.

Performance

Things also got bigger under the hood for the 2019 release. The base engine is a 2.0L variety that produces up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. Three of the Veloster’s six trim levels feature a turbo engine that’s good for 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque and the Veloster comes in both manual and automatic transmission options along with an EcoShift dual clutch. And for the fast and furious crowd, the Veloster N packs 275 horsepower into its complete performance package.  

Safety

But never fear — when it comes to safety, the Veloster remains true to its “practical car” roots. A wide range of standard safety features includes everything from a Vehicle Stability Management system to tire pressure monitoring to Forward Collision-avoidance Assist and more.
