What's New in the 2020 Hyundai Veloster?

For 2020, the Veloster carries over largely unchanged. The 6-speed manual is dropped from the Turbo Ultimate trim, while blind-spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert is standard on the Turbo R-Spec. Cargo area tie downs are added to all models. See the 2020 Hyundai Veloster models for sale near you

Which Veloster is the Best?

If you're just looking for a fun, nicely equipped coupe without a lot of power, the 2.0 Premium has the right balance of features and pricing to make it our choice. From a performance stance, we'd go with the Turbo Ultimate over the N for its standard automatic transmission and additional driver-assist features. Purists looking for the ultimate ride will find the Honda Civic Type-R or the VW Golf R, though more expensive, are more satisfying choices over the Veloster N. Find a Hyundai Veloster for sale

2020 Hyundai Veloster vs the competition

2019 Honda Civic Si Coupe -- The Civic Si has about the same horsepower as the Veloster Turbo, but it performs a bit better in the curves. However, the Civic Coupe doesn't offer advanced driver assists, nor is its warranty as long.

2019 Volkswagen GTI -- The GTI isn't as powerful as the most powerful Veloster, but it drives better than even the N trim, offers a more upscale interior and has four doors versus three.

2019 Toyota 86 -- The 86 is a proper 2-door coupe, with razor-sharp handling, but doesn't have anywhere near the same amount of power, features or versatility as the Veloster.

2019 Mini Cooper -- The Mini is a blast to drive, offers far more options and interior upgrades, as well as the John Cooper Works package. The Cooper comes with two or four doors plus offers convertible and all-wheel-drive models.

Used VW Golf R -- A 2015-2017 VW Golf R delivers nearly 300 hp, has standard all-wheel drive and some of the best sport seats in the industry.
