Hyundai Motor Argentina confirmed that the New Veloster will arrive in the country in three versions: 2.0 6AT, 1.6 Turbo Sport 6MT y 1.6 Turbo Ultimate 7DCT. In this way, it will offer a range of possibilities targeting different types of audience. Its commercialization will begin in November.
The New Veloster maintains as its main distinctive its asymmetry, with one door on the driver's side and two on the passenger side (1 + 2), being the only car in the world with the sportiness of a coupe and the practicality of a hatchback.
In addition, it presents a complete exterior and interior redesign and features powertrain enhancements, a host of new connectivity and entertainment features, and incorporates multilink rear suspension on all versions.
The new Veloster offers the latest technology applied to security. The torsional stiffness of the structure increased 28% with 121 meters of adhesives. The electronic stability control, ABS, disc brakes on all four wheels, 6 airbags, hill start aid, among others, stand out.
All Veloster models come with the torque vectoring control (TVC) that uses speed sensors coupled to Stability Control to apply precise braking force during hard cornering.
This active braking redirects power into the turn to the front wheel, reducing its camber to improve cornering grip and exit acceleration. On the other hand, the steering assistance was improved, achieving a more precise and direct response.
It has two motorization options. The 2.0 Atkinson with 16 valves, 149 horsepower and 18.3 Kgm of torque, replaces the previous 1.6 adding more power and torque. It is associated with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
On the other hand, the 1.6 Turbo is a 204 horsepower direct injection engine, 27.0 Kgm of torque and an overboost function (achieving 28.0 Kgm of torque). It is associated with two transmission versions: 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
