Trims and Powertrains


The 2020 Veloster certainly offers variety, with five trims (2.0, 2.0 Premium, Turbo R-Spec, Turbo, and Turbo Ultimate) plus the Veloster N variation, which pushes performance capabilities to the limit. Both the 2.0 and 2.0 Premium get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission, although a six-speed automatic can be opted for; there is no stickshift option for the Premium. The six-speed manual transmission that was previously found in the Turbo Ultimate has been dropped in favor of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.


Each of the Turbo trims is configured with a turbocharged 1.0-liter four-cylinder engine providing 201 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the R-Spec has a six-speed manual, the Turbo and Ultimate both receive a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic. The Veloster N's power is produced by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that kicks up 250 or 275 horses (depending on the package) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. This motor gets paired up with a six-speed manual.



Standard Equipment


The 2.0 is generously equipped with selectable drive modes, heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, a rearview camera system, and remote keyless entry. The 2.0 Premium is upgraded to include a power moonroof, automatic climate control, heated fronts seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and proximity entry with push-button ignition.


The Turbo R-Spec gets a sport-tuned suspension, LED headlights, and sport-specific tires. The Turbo adds a power sunroof, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and heated front seats, power lumbar support for the driver's seat, an auto defogging windshield, and a perforated leather steering wheel. The Turbo Ultimate earns its name with premium amenities, including rain-sensing windshield wipers and leather seating. If you choose the Veloster N, you'll get all of the standard equipment that comes with the Turbo R-Spec. The N variant is also eligible for the Performance Package to add 25 more hp, an electronic limited-slip differential, variable exhaust system timing, and larger front and rear brakes.


Safety & Technology


All Veloster grades come with a suite of advanced driver aids. The 2.0 trim gets forward-collision warning, a blind-spot mirror, driver attention warning, and lane-keeping assist. The 2.0 Premium trim and all trims above it add a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. The last of the safety equipment comes with the Turbo Ultimate, as it includes forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control. The Veloster N incorporates the same safety equipment as the 2.0 Premium.


The communications and entertainment features on the 2.0 trim consist of a 7-inch infotainment system that includes a USB port and capability for Bluetooth hands-free, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The 2.0 Premium and Turbo R-Spec upgrade to an 8-inch display with satellite radio, voice recognition, an eight-speaker Infinity Audio system, and Blue Link services. Both the 2.0 Premium and Turbo also get a wireless smartphone charging pad. The Turbo Ultimate provides all you can ask for, with all of the above plus integrated navigation and a heads-up display. For the Veloster N, the list of amenities mirrors that of the Turbo R-Spec.
