Designers awarded 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster bright, original and unusual appearance. Walk past the car standing in the parking lot is simply impossible, so stylish and original looks four-door hatchback. Start outer appearance is logical to explain to our readers the secret location of the door 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster. On the left side, one door, the rear of the body with tailgate and on the starboard side doors for two. It turns out the four doorways.

first row doors are wide and provide a comfortable fit in the interior the driver and passenger. The door for the rear passengers, and compact size to fit in the rear seat, you must have the body of a gymnast, in order to squeeze into the narrow gap, thus it is necessary to monitor the possible contact with clothing vyshtampovki wheel arch and to protect the head from hitting the roof slope.

An even number of doors on the body of a hatchback of the original decision, but from the practical side is very doubtful opting for passengers to get on the rear seats. Let’s close our eyes to the inconvenience of landing on the back row, the potential owner estimates the appearance of his future acquisitions, and with the exterior at the Veloster a full order, from whatever side we did not look at him.

  • We indicate the dimensions of the body 2018-2019 Hyundai Velostar : 4220 mm long, 1790 mm ​​wide, 1399 mm high, 2650 mm wheelbase, ground clearance 143 mm (clearance).

The front of the car with a huge headlamps decorated with stylish segments LED daytime running lights, bumper with powerful air intake mouth, and bright diamonds protivotumanok aerodynamic skirts, grooves, troughs and spikes. Even the hood of the car looks unusual – a long with a drop-down front and original vyshtampovki.


In reviewing cars with side admire the large, swollen wheel arches courageously able to accommodate tires 215/45 R17 or 215/40 R18 alloy wheels on the 17-18 range, high window sill line is rapidly taking off in the rear, a compact side windows, edges and vyshtampovka , spikes and troughs spelled out on the side of the body. Pull-down roof merges with the stern hatch, forming enchanting back.

Amazingly stylish marker lights, the monument sports bumper with diffuser insert and original exhaust system on the center, miniature tailgate with a large area of ​​glazing and a visor spoiler.

At night, the 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster easily be mistaken for an Italian sports car costing several hundred euros, so bright it looks Korean hatchback.

  • For expressive appearance and color enamel offers bright, you can choose from eight options proposed: White Crystal (White), Sunflower (bright yellow), Green Apple (apple-green), Blue Ocean (bright blue), Vitamin C (orange) Veloster red (red), Sonic Silver (dark silver) and Phantom black (black).

For individualization body Veloster offers a wide range of accessories: plates and moldings, edging and labels, protective films and mudguards, alloy wheels with color inserts under the general body color, the salon mats and trays in the trunk.

2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster for Russian motorists is offered in three trim levels: elementary Joy auto mechanics, Fun and Hit for versions with a gun.
To sit down in the driver’s seat and front passenger seat is very comfortable thanks to the wide doors. The first row of chairs with thick padding, excellent lateral support and heated. Steering wheel with control of music is adjustable in height and depth, the instruments in deep wells harmoniously complemented screen trip computer. The front panel and center console look modern, but not amazing elegance, simple and concise.

It’s nice that even in the basic configuration is established Joy climate control, 7-inch color touch screen and audio system (CD MP3, FM AM, AUX, USB, RCA, 6 speakers). The ergonomics of the workplace enables the driver to an exemplary stay in the workplace, even for the seat belt does not have to reach – it will give “plastic hand.” Designated driver and front passenger is provided with a reserve, to the greatest version of Hit the driver’s seat equipped with electric adjustments.

To get to the back row, as we mentioned above, it is very difficult, and so can only sit passengers of small stature. The roof in the rear is so low that the heads of two passengers can not fit under the glass tailgate and roof edge is in contact with the rear seat noses. Places knee also in short supply and only the width of the interior optimum stock. In our opinion, the second row is suitable for placement of children, in the extreme case of adolescents, adult passengers ride in the back seat seems torture.

The boot capacity is 320 liters modest, down the rear seat backs its cargo capacity increases to 1015 liters. Loading height is large, porem narrow – all for the sake of chic design Veloster.

Materials finishes and build quality interior at soplatformennyh hatchback 2018-2019 Hyundai i30 and the Kia the Cee’d , but would like better, because the exterior design 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster just phenomenal, and from the salon customers expect the same effect, but, alas, not even in the maximum version Hit with a combined seat upholstery (artificial and natural leather) and inserts for aluminum.

Specifications 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster can cause dullness of a potential owner. Suspension front independent MacPherson struts on, but behind semidependent – archaic torsion beam. I am glad availability of electronic security systems (ABS, BAS, HAC, ESC and VSM) and steering with an electric amplifier. But only the 1.6-liter petrol engine with recoil force of 132, which is clearly not enough for the machine weight from 1180 to 1239 kg. For family hatchback engine power will be enough, but in front of us a car propelled by a Korean manufacturer as a sports, and for the price of 849,000 rubles want more powerful engine.

So do not expect from the 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster excellent dynamics and high maximum speed. Up to 100 mph engine mated to a 6 speed manual (6 automatic transmission) car accelerates for 10.7 (11.5) seconds, top speed 195 (190) mph. Fuel consumption on the passport of the combined cycle of 6.2 (7.0) liters. In real operating conditions fuel consumption is slightly higher and depends on driving style. In calm owners in the combined cycle fuel consumption of no more than 8-9 liters, the owners are prone to aggressive driving talking about an average fuel consumption of 10-12 liters.

Test drive 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster : car chassis by installing less compliant springs and shock absorbers, stiffer and thicker stabilizer compounds than in the suspension soplatformennyh hatchbacks – different elasticity and stiffness. Acute, excellent steering, suspension tenacious, predictable behavior on the road – the driver of the machine. That’s just payback for the tenacity of the suspension will roar when driving large pits. Auto does not like the bad asphalt surface – stiff suspension, low profile tires, but still weak insulation and the bottom of the wheel arches. Especially spoil the picture of a low-power motor on the 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster, the impression that the engine has asthma. The response to the opening of the throttle valve with a noticeable delay, in order to provide a decent dynamics, tachometer arrow must be kept on the outskirts of the red zone, but eventually the acceleration sluggish and the engine straining loud moans. It is a pity that Russia is not available with the turbocharged Veloster 1.6-liter engine producing 200 horsepower.

What is the cost to buy a new bright 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster in Russia? The price of the sale will start from 849 thousand rubles for the 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster as standard with a 6 speed manual Joy. Version 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster Fun with automatic machine 6 and richer content will cost in the price in 989 thousand rubles. For the most packed 2018-2019 Hyundai Veloster Hit with leather interior, panoramic roof, rear view camera, electric driver’s seat in the showroom authorized dealer will be asked to 1.089 million. Rubles.
