A sporty hatchback like the Hyundai Veloster is designed to be both stylish and fun to drive. It provides you with agile handling, an efficient performance, and lots of fun features.

To help drivers in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre decide if this vehicle is right for you, Maguire Hyundai explores everything it has to offer in this 2020 Hyundai Veloster review.

Hyundai Veloster Specs

The Hyundai Veloster offers a sporty and efficient drive with both of its available powertrains.

The first option is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. It provides great fuel economy, too, with an EPA-estimated 27 city/34 highway MPG.* Plus, it comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, but a 6-speed automatic is also available.

The second powertrain that's offered is a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder that can produce up to 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It also delivers excellent fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG.* With this engine under the hood, you'll have a choice between the two 6-speed transmissions and a 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

Veloster Design & Dimensions

The 2020 Veloster has a streamlined design that sits low to the ground. At only 55.1 inches tall and 166.9 inches long, this hatchback is both aerodynamic and highly maneuverable. The exterior also features a sleek third door on the passenger's side for easy access to the back seats.

Inside, you'll find seating for up to four people with 89.9 cubic feet of passenger space. The front row features 38.1 inches of headroom and 42.6 inches of legroom. Passengers in the back can get comfortable, too, with 35.9 inches of headroom and 34.1 inches of legroom.

Its rounded hatchback design will also help you pack lots of cargo. There's 19.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk. If you've got more things to load, you can use the 60/40 split fold-down rear seats to make more than double the space. With the back seats folded, the Hyundai Veloster has 44.5 cubic feet of cargo room.

On top of its comfort and convenience, the interior offers amenities that complement the hatchback's sporty performance. There's a choice between cloth, cloth with leather bolsters, and leather seats. You can also add alloy pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leather-wrapped shift knob to make it feel like you're in the cockpit of a roadster.

Hyundai Veloster Infotainment System

To make your drives more convenient and enjoyable, plus keep you connected, the Hyundai Veloster comes with a user-friendly infotainment system. There's a standard 7-inch touchscreen on top of the dashboard, but an 8-inch screen is also available.

Both options let you stream music from your phone and make hands-free calls through Bluetooth®. You can also access your smartphone apps with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

For more music options and superior sound quality, both SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and HD Radio™ are available as well.
