This latest model might be telling us that Hyundai has finally decided to invest in performance.2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Picture
- Performance features
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo is powered by a 1.6 liter engine with dual exhaust. It has a similar suspension as the former Veloster model which is a little disappointing. The car features 201 horse power. The base model only had 138 hp and went from 0 to 60 miles in 8,5 seconds which was a disappointing performance for the Hyundai fans. The Turbo, on the other hand is a lot more impressing. The turbo engine costs $1600 and it features and intercooled twin-scroll turbo with a compression ratio of 9.5:1. It delivers 195 lb-ft of torque at 1750 rpm. For those of you who have tried out the standard Veloster, the additional 63 hp will feel as if you got rid of a tremendous load.
It is hard to put the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo into a certain category as it borrows elements from all automobile models. Its design is somehow half-couple but it also has sedan elements as well as hatchback aspects. It is a mixture between the Accent and the Elantra. Its most distinctive features are the two plus one asymmetrical doors. It also features an optional sunroof which blends well with the overall structure of the car. The main improvements include bigger front brake discs and bigger wheels which are now 18 inch. We also like the projector headlamps with Led eyeliner. The model is available with an optional, $1000 matte gray finish. This is the first matte option that Hyundai has ever offered.
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo‘s interior is just as spectacular as its exterior. It features heated leather seats which can have either gray or blue accents with the embroidered Turbo logo. The standard version is rather well equipped considering its $22,725 starting price. Optional features include the $2500 sunroof which comes with an improved navigation system and the $1000 automatic transmission. The interior has a sporty vibe. However, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is not a fully sports car but rather a mixture between various models.
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo takes the best aspects from the sedan, the coupe and the hatchback. In theory, this mixture might seem complicated but the truth is that it has been a real success. The turbo performance upgrade was just what the Veloster needed in order to be a value car.
