Meet the Veloster

The Veloster is all-new for 2019, giving it dazzling new sheet metal that stands out from the crowd even more than ever before. The revisions for this model year preserve the Veloster's distinctive fastback roofline while offering more rear headroom. A stiff new body structure and a new rear multilink suspension give the Veloster's updated chassis more precise handling than ever, delivering performance that matches its upgraded looks. It also preserves its unique 3-door plus hatchback design, with the passenger side sporting a hidden door for easier access to the back seat while maintaining its hatchback/coupe profile. A "cascading" grille design, optional LED headlights and taillights, centre exhaust outlets, and available 18-inch alloy wheels complete the Veloster's eye-catching style. Turbocharged and normally aspirated engine choices are available again this year.

Veloster Vs. Mazda 3

We'll match up the Veloster 1.6 Turbo with 6-speed manual transmission against the Mazda that most closely competes with it, the Mazda3 Sport GT hatchback, also with a 6-speed manual transmission. Both are sporty compact hatchbacks that fall within a few hundred of each other in price, but the Veloster offers several huge advantages at these comparable trim levels. Let's start with performance:
