December 27th, 2016 by

The Hyundai Veloster is one of the most unique, affordable cars on the road. Whether you’re looking at the 3-door hatchback or the coupe, you’re sure to get noticed when you’re behind the wheel of the Veloster. Within the Veloster trimline, you have a few options that will make the experience behind the wheel even more exciting. Although the base trim is the most affordable, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is worth a closer look if you’re seeking more performance and interior amenities.

In terms of pure performance, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo shares an engine with the Veloster Turbo R-Spec and Rally Edition. That 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is rated for 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. The Veloster Turbo, however, is the only trim with both a six-speed manual transmission and seven-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission available. Despite the increased power, the 2016 Hyundai Veloster near Denver, CO is rated for 29 combined mpg with the Dual Clutch Transmission. Also on the performance front, the Veloster Turbo suspension and steering are less aggressively tuned than the Turbo Rally Edition, making your drive a little smoother.

In terms of style, the Veloster Turbo has a few unique characteristics, including special wheel designs and integrated turn signals, among others. The Veloster Turbo also features keyless ignition, heated front seats, and leather upholstery. Additionally, the Veloster Turbo has an available Tech package, which adds a number of conveniences like a navigation system, Hyundai Blue Link, and rear parking sensors.

If you’re considering the Veloster, the Turbo trim is arguably the most impressive model available, depending on your preferences. With performance enhancements, more equipment and technology, and some unique styling, the Veloster Turbo is sure to turn heads.
