In 2019, the Hyundai Veloster not only gained a more aggressive design, but it gained a new performance-oriented N model that turned this Korean hatchback into a legit hot hatchback. The 2020 Hyundai Veloster will continue the enhancements with updated features and a thinning of the manual transmission herd.
In 2019, the Hyundai Veloster was a blast from the past, as it offered plenty of configurations that included a six-speed manual transmission, even in the high-end Turbo Ultimate trim. This will no longer be the case, as Hyundai will drop the availability of a DIY gearbox in this trim, but it will retain the six-cog unit in the Turbo R-Spec model.
On the outside, there are no standout changes, but a careful eye will spot a few subtle updates, as the front grille, front and rear fascia accents, and side skirts will switch from flat black to gloss black.
Inside, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster will gain standard cargo tie-down hooks on all trim levels and a standard wireless charger on Turbo and Turbo Ultimate trims.
Finally, safety in the 2020 Veloster will move up a notch with its newly standard blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert on the Turbo R-Spec trim.
The 2020 Hyundai Veloster is hitting showrooms now. Starting prices range from $18,600 to $27,400, which are increases of $100 and $500, respectively.
