Months of speculation have been brought to an end after leaked footage of the 2018 Hyundai Veloster surfaced.

The 2018 Veloster is expected to be revealed later this month at the Detroit Motor show and is sure to be equally as unique as previous generations but with a bit more bite expected.

The new Veloster has undergone a significant amount of change from its previous siblings including the updated ‘cascading grille’, new bumpers and a sleeker LED headlight design.

 

The new design was seen in footage recently leaked from a Hyundai shoot and some snapshots made their way into the spotlight. Despite the low-quality stills salvaged from the video, along with a teaser produced by Hyundai in a recent ad, we can see some exciting new elements of the 2018/19 Veloster.

Despite the design being somewhat revealed, we’re still left guessing as to the chosen power plant for the new Veloster. Hyundai has said that it will either be propelled by a 1.4L or 1.6L turbocharged engine with ‘over-boost’ for the higher-spec models or a 2L naturally aspirated engine taken from the current model Elantra for the standard Veloster.

If this wasn’t exciting enough news for you, we have one more thing for you – the new addition to the range, the Veloster N.

 

Rumoured to make its first appearance late 2018, it is thought to be sporting the same 200+ kilowatt 2.0L turbocharged engine from the performance orientated i30 N released in 2017.

 

With more than enough power to rival its competition, the Golf GTI, it’s a force to be reckoned with and has us very excited for what’s to come.
