Hello everyone,,



No matter how you look at it, the Hyundai Veloster is an odd duck. With the vehicle's weird door configuration and styling that kind of looks like a modernized Honda CRX, the model is certainly unlike anything else on the road today. Since spotting one testing earlier this year (pictured above), we know that a refreshed version is on the way eventually, but that car keeps a lot of its secrets hidden under camouflage. New rumors from The Korean Car Blog suggest that the Veloster might receive a few mechanical changes to go along with the updated skin.

Among the biggest rumored tweaks is that the turbocharged model is receiving a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox as a replacement for its current, conventional six-speed auto. Another potential change for the naturally aspirated version is Hyundai's Flex Steer system that offers selectable weighting for the electric power steering.

Styling obviously isn't being left alone for the update. The mule testing earlier this year appears to show a new grille and altered bumpers underneath its concealment. The latest rumors suggest that's exactly the case with the possibility of a front end closer in design to the current Genesis, along with HID headlights and a modified hood design to remove the faux heat extractors.

Inside, noise levels are rumored to be lower, and buyers might benefit from improved trim, an updated infotainment system and possibly new seats for the Turbo.

Autoblog spoke to Hyundai spokesperson Jim Trainor about the changes for the facelift, and he simply told us, "We don't comment on future products."

It shouldn't be too long before the validity of all of this is proven, though. The refreshed Veloster is rumored to debut at an auto show in the US early next year, perhaps in Detroit or Chicago. Hopefully, Hyundai doesn't do anything to take away the model's bizarre spirit.Facelifted Hyundai Veloster to get new 7-speed DCT, Flex Steer originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 15:44:00 EST.

I bought a 2019 Velositer Turbo Ultimate as my new "grocery getter". The car is a blast to drive and highly improved over the outgoing model. It far more than a facelift writhing a new. Rear suspension and a larger body. The DCT transmission is pretty neat and the interior appointments are very nice especially at the. Price point of the car. Great little car.

I actually really like what they did to the 19, wonder why they're redesigning it already with it being the US Launch piece for the N Series

This is not a redesigned model. There will not be a refreshed model until 3-4 years from when the car released in Korea. The only thing that we know as of now is that the Veloster N will get an 8-Speed DCT for the 2020 MY. Please look carefully at everything and see if other outlets are posting it. I no such way would Hyundai refresh a model after one year of it being out. Also that picture that’s Posted above is of the first gen model and not the current gen.
