Hyundai Veloster 2020 pricing and spec confirmed: Stylish i30 alternative lands this month

Better late than never, the new Hyundai Veloster is finally set to reach Australian dealerships this month.

Hyundai Australia has released pricing and specification for its long-delayed Veloster four-door hatchback, which was first revealed at last year’s Detroit motor show in January.

The second-generation version of the quirky Veloster retains the signature single driver’s side-, two passenger-side- and hatchback-door layout, with pricing kicking off from $29,490 before on-road costs when it enters showrooms later this month.

The Veloster range will consist of three variants – the base Veloster, more potent Veloster Turbo and top-shelf Veloster Turbo Premium – with the former powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making 110kW of power and 180Nm of torque, and the latter two underpinned by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four cylinder making 150kW and 265Nm.

Both will be available with a six-speed manual transmission and the choice of an automatic – a six-speed torque converter in the 2.0 litre and a seven-speed dual-clutch unit in the Turbo.

The range starts at $29,490 for the manual Veloster, with the auto adding $2300 to the price. The manual Turbo kicks off at $35,490, while the Premium grade is priced at $38,990. The automatic option on turbocharged Velosters will set buyers back another $3000.

Standard equipment for the Veloster includes 18-inch alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, cruise control, climate control air-conditioning, reversing camera, sports seats, leather-appointed steering wheel and gear selector, a six-speaker sound system, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay.

Stepping up to the Turbo brings unique 18-inch alloys, Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rubber, a larger 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen, satellite navigation, digital radio, LED head- and tail-lights, and a partial leather interior trim.

The Premium gets its own dark metallic/machined rims, sunroof, leather upholstery, heated steering wheel, head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, and a wireless smartphone charging pad. It also gets the option of a two-tone roof in Phantom Black for an additional $1000.

Safety is covered by six-airbags, forward collision warning, driver attention warning and lane-keeping assist for the base car, but the Turbo adds active cruise control, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning with inter-urban and pedestrian detection (on the auto only).
