Hyundai has released another teaser of the 2019 Veloster, which appears to be inspired by the Lexus LIT IS. In the 20-second clip, we get a good look at the coupe’s profile before an array of LEDs on the car’s body puts on a show for us.

Aside from the theatrics, the teaser doesn’t reveal a whole lot more than what we’ve seen in previous spyshots. Visually, the car retains its asymmetrical door configuration – two doors on one side and one on the other – along with other evolutionary changes.

From the side, we can see a larger glass section compared to the outgoing model, which should help improve outward visibility. The front end also gets a big hexagonal grille up, coupled with smaller and sharper headlights.

As for the rear, the triple-element tailgate adopts a more reserved design to go along with the sleeker look of the taillights. Further down, the diffuser and centre-mounted dual exhaust tips are retained, although they have been tweaked as well.

The new Veloster is expected to be powered by the brand’s Gamma T-GDi turbocharged engines, paired with a dual-clutch automatic gearbox or six-speed manual. It is also rumoured that a high-performance version might be in the making, parked under the Hyundai’s N sub-brand, like the i30 N.
