The front end of 2017 Hyundai Veloster will look sleeker with a refreshed hexagonal grille and narrow headlights. Two things will catch your attention in the rear end of the car. These include graphic tail lights and stylish diffuser vents. The major highlights on the sides include 18-inch shiny-alloy wheels and sculpted skirts.

Most of the interior components are expected to be sophisticated and sporty. We may see adjustable seats and a steering wheel with a better grip and a host of controls. If you have driven the outgoing Veloster, you can have a clue of how the center console will look like. There are no major changes on the infotainment system and navigation unit. These parts will only get more control buttons and switches.
