For 2019, the Veloster has been completely redesigned, riding on a similarly sized wheelbase, but with a wider body, more power and more features. Along with the carryover trims is a new, high-performance N model that's designed to take on the likes of the Honda Civic Type R and the Volkswagen Golf R.

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 available 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
