The new Hyundai Veloster Turbo has made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year. With a starting price of $24, 775, it’s the most expensive Veloster model available, $1, 175 less than the four-door Mini Cooper S and $1, 640 more than the Volkswagen GTI.
To begin with, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, with 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, which is available between 1, 750 and 4, 500 rpm. The engine, however is not powerful enough despite coming with a substantial torque. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is slower than other vehicles like the Fiat 500 Abarth.
Furthermore, there are many complains received on this car about its fuel economy. This Rally Edition only manages to come in under the EPA-estimated 25 mpg city rating at 24 miles per gallon. It increases the measurably on less than 22 mpg Senior Editor Mieresma.
According to Hyundai, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo has more aggressive dampers, springs nad sway bars that the racier R-Spec model. But, the Rally Edition is a mono-spec item, what you see is what you get, which, damages its value if proposition. Even so, it doesn’t mean that this car is that bad, but it seems like there are far greater options of cars that you can choose other than this one.
