2016 Hyundai Veloster introduced in Chicago image

The 2016 Hyundai Veloster has been officially presented to the public during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, in a premiere, as the model in question will be offered for sale starting from this May.

After officially pulling the wraps off the Elantra GT and the Veloster Rally Edition at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, time has come for Hyundai to introduce the 2016 Veloster too, during the same automotive event. The vehicle has received a slightly revised exterior design, with the dark gray grille surround, the new hood, the 17-inch alloy wheels and several other tweaks which should put some distance between it and the current versions.

“All Velosters feature six airbags—including dual front, front seat-mounted side-impact, and front and rear side curtain airbags. Velosters also features a state-of-the-art braking package. The package includes four-wheel disc brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake Assist, which provides maximum braking force when a panic stop is detected, and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), to automatically adjust the braking force to front and rear axles based on vehicle loading conditions”, says the carmaker.

Besides these, the 2016 Hyundai Veloster is also bringing the 10 mm wider tire width on the 18-inch alloy wheels (optional), the next-gen Blue Link telematics, the SiriusXM Travel Link with a 90-day trial, the Eyes Free Apple Siri integration, the HD Radio capability, the black bolster seats with yellow inserts, the 7-inch touch screen audio / navigation system functions and much more. It seems that no performance modifications have been made to the updated Veloster so we are expecting the same engine lineup under its hood. The model will go on sale this May but no pricing details have been announced so far.
