The Houston Hyundai Veloster might have had its update with the 2019 Hyundai Veloster, but it doesn’t mean that the 2018 version sucks big time. The new one actually received a lot of mixed reactions and its understandable because the overall design was overhauled from the ground up. No more curvy features, it’s just replaced with a more angry looking Veloster. The 2018 version wasn’t bad, it was just time to give it an update, especially with Hyundai’s new signature large grills. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t buy one today, it still is around, you just need to know look.
