Back in January, Hyundai revealed the 2019 Veloster at the NAIAS (Detroit Auto Show). The 2019 Veloster sports a new more aggressive look though mechanically remains largely the same but with more options, including the turbo trims.
Today we know how much the new Velosters will fetch at dealerships once they release later this year.
The 2.0 naturally aspirated equipped base model will start at $18,500 (for the manual transmission). The “Premium” trim of the 2.0 will go for $22,750.
When it comes to the 1.6 liter Turbo model things start off at $22,900 for the R-Spec manual transmission. If you’d rather have a DCT transmission with your Turbo that will cost you $25,000
Those who want the “Ultimate” trim they’ll spend $26,650 and $28,150 for the manual and DCT transmissions respectively.
For the most part the pricing seems pretty reasonable though I will admit I think the $28k for the DCT Turbo is slightly pushing it.
Missing from the announcement is any pricing info on the Veloster N which is essentially Hyundai’s answer to the Honda Civic Type R.
Though, with a DCT Turbo Veloster starting at $28k I think a $35k price tag is a safe bet for the “N” model.
I expect we’ll find out the Veloster N’s price tag closer to the end of the summer.
What do you think of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster pricing? Is Hyundai asking too much? Or do you think they’re pricing will help Hyundai take a bite out of Honda Civic’s market share?
