An Introductory Note on the 2020 Hyundai Veloster
Bringing together the best of both the worlds of comfortable coupe and practical hatchback, the 2020 model year of Hyundai Veloster now Opens a New Window. If you ask if it is a standout in its class in true sense, we will say “yes, of course.” Our opinion was supported by all the consumers and sellers we met at the Petaluma Hyundai dealership showroom, where a huge crowd gathered around the 2020 Hyundai Veloster model.
What Has Changed for 2020?
For the year 2020, Hyundai has mostly carried on the basic structure of the 2019 lineup. So the 2020 edition of the Hyundai Veloster has remained more or less the same except for the 6-speed manual transmission that got stricken off from the Turbo Ultimate trim and safety features like blind-spot collision warning along with rear cross-traffic alert made standard on the models that are installed with Turbo R-Spec.
Framed and designed as a unique looking car with a three-passenger door, Hyundai calling it 2+1, Opening a New Window wears an earnest sporty look with 2-door opening from the driver’s side, while an elongated door with side glass is there to attain increased visibility.
Cabin Layout and Comfort Features
As you peep at the passenger section, the entire story changes as versatility meets practicality. Equipped with an additional door to make easy access to the rear seat, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster takes care of every passenger from every age group.
If you choose the low-slung coupe version of the 2020 Hyundai Veloster, you’ll find its cabin practically designed to meet all the aspects of accommodating people. Allowing plenty of room at the front side, you get a reasonably wide rear seat. Leaving 19.9 cu ft. of space only for the cargo, the 2020 Hyundai Veloster stands at par with the first benchers in this segment.
Powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the 2020 lineup of Hyundai Veloster offers varied trim packages that sees models starting with simple features and then climbing up steadily towards a sporty travel companion especially with the R-Spec package added to its base trim.
The R-Spec trim will further provide the vehicle with a host of advanced safety features that will now consist of rear cross-traffic detection and blind-spot monitoring as standard. Other niceties included in most of its trims are a nice sunroof, leather upholstered cabin with heated seats, a latest heads-up display for the infotainment section and rain-sensing wipers to help the driver find the road during bad weather conditions.
If you are one among those spirited drivers who can’t do without a manual transmission, Hyundai will allow that in your Veloster if you agree to install the N Performance package that will enhance the performance level of your 2020 Veloster model by adding bigger sized brakes as well as wheels, an adjustable exhaust, an electronically-controlled limited-slip differential and extra 25 units of extra horsepower to its standard one.
There are many more goodies packed inside the 2020 lineup of Hyundai Veloster lineup which you can explore by taking a test drive at a reputable showroom like that of the Petaluma Hyundai dealer.
