U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut

  U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut American customers will have a choice of a 1.6 turbo and a 2.0 naturally aspirated engines.The automaker is not revealing a lot of details about the U.S.-spec model, but we know from before it will be offered with two four-cylinder gasoline engines, mated to both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The entry-level variant will be powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated unit with 147 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 132 pound feet (179 Newton-meters) of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. In this version, the Kona will need 10 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill and will hit a top speed of 120 mph (193 kph).

Hyundai created the first Veloster by taking the bones of its familiar and conventional Accent compact car and whipping up a hatchback that, at first glance, looked as if it had a conventional five- door layout. This all-new 2019 model promises more performance while still keeping the funk factor high.

2019 Hyundai Veloster© Manufacturer 2019 Hyundai Veloster Hyundai created the first Veloster by taking the bones of its familiar and conventional Accent compact car and whipping up a hatchback that, at first glance, looked as if it had a conventional five-door layout. Of course, that was only if onlookers were on the passenger side, which sported two portals. On the driver’s side, they’d think it was a three-door, as there was just one door there. Even now, more than six years after that car went on sale in the United States, this layout is still weird. Unfortunately, the funkiness and fun promised by the oddball door design didn’t carry over to the driving experience, as even the hottest versions proved to be lukewarm. This all-new 2019 model promises more performance while still keeping the funk factor high.

Unlike the production model, this one's covered in LEDs, but we can still make out some solid details hidden under all that flashy stuff.

A Little Sportier in Real Life

While it now shares its architecture with the new Elantra GT hatchback, the 2019 Veloster skips that car’s twist-beam rear axle in favor of an independent multilink setup; both use struts up front. For Veloster duty, Hyundai thickened the front anti-roll bar by 1 mm, to 24 mm, and added a 19-mm bar at the rear. Brake-activated pseudo torque vectoring is now standard on the base Veloster, while the Turbo receives a retuned and quicker steering rack, plus optional 18-inch Michelin Pilot Sport 4 performance tires.

At the low end, a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four replaces a 1.6-liter unit; this port-injected engine makes 147 horsepower (up 15) at 6200 rpm and 132 lb-ft of torque (up 12) at 4500 rpm. The optional direct-injection turbo 1.6-liter, with 201 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 195 lb-ft between 1500 and 4500 rpm, is a carryover piece save for an overboost function that briefly uncorks 202 lb-ft when mashing the gas pedal to the floor. As manual-transmission fans, we’re happy the Veloster continues to offer a standard six-speed stick on both base and Turbo trims. A six-speed regular automatic replaces the six-speed dual-clutch automatic on the 2.0-liter cars, while the Turbo uses the same seven-speed DCT as before. Driver-selectable modes that alter the throttle, transmission, and steering settings are now included.

If you tell your car to check the weather and turn on the lights at the same time, it'll do both instead of scratching its head like so many other AI helpers.

More Coupe, Less Cartoon

Visually, the new Veloster’s front and side profiles are cleaner than before, and the 2019 model also has a more pronounced grille, a lower roofline, and, optionally, LED headlights and a contrasting black roof panel. Everything on the exterior is a couple of notches straighter and squarer than before, especially the chunkier rear quarter-panels and a rear bumper that seems poised to swallow the liftgate. The central-mounted exhaust, rendered using two chrome pipes on Turbo models or a single trapezoid on base cars, is mostly the same—jutting from beneath a swath of trim—although the Turbo R-Spec now has a diffuser-esque lower fascia. The taillights start on the liftgate and run between the outsides of the meager rear glass and the hefty C-pillars and up to the rear spoiler; the Veloster still won’t be renowned for great rearward visibility.

Inside, the center stack’s thicker and steeper right edge provides a visual separation of driver from passenger, Infinity replaces Dimension as the brand for the uplevel audio system, and a larger, 8.0-inch touchscreen controls Hyundai’s latest Blue Link apps. A head-up display placed on the cowl, like those in Mazda vehicles, is now optional, along with Qi wireless-device charging. Where before the Veloster offered zero active driver assists, the 2019 model brings standard forward-collision alert and automated emergency braking. Lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, and a driver-attention monitor are optional. Turbo buyers can also spec adaptive cruise control.

Hyundai also revealed the long-awaited Veloster N, which will pack up to 275 horses and 260 lb-ft when it goes on sale later this year as a competitor as a competitor to hot compacts such as the Honda Civic Si and Type R and the Volkswagen Golf GTI and R. While it’s impossible to tell from this static reveal whether the new Veloster will be a solid basis for the new N division, the fact that the model is getting a second act—one that includes a high-performance variant—proves that Hyundai still knows how to be daring once in a while.
