Mid-engine Hyundai Veloster photographed during testsAugust 20, 2019
The mid-engine sports version of the Veloster passes the required road tests. Appearance of the novelty, despite
Hyundai began road tests of the “charged” Hyundai Veloster with an average engine location. Spy shots from the last race appeared in foreign automotive media. In these photographs, camouflage does not prevent us from making out the similarities between the novelty and the Veloster N TCR race car. Among the differences, one can note a horizontally elongated air intake instead of several smaller ones, as well as small rear-view mirrors located on the supports, which are attached to the door panels. On the rear side windows, the manufacturer has provided special ventilation openings, which are the best evidence of the average location of the motor.
One more clue is given to us by the front of the car, where the sticker with the warning “Only gasoline!” Was placed. Here, apparently, the filling neck is hidden, and the tank itself is located in the engine compartment.
Recall that work on the mid-engined Hyundai Veloster has been underway since 2016. The test sample seen by photospies is not much like the first prototype. Initially, the model was equipped with a two-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric supercharger and a 295 hp output. There is no more detailed information about this model and the company’s plans for it.
