Automotive Editor -

Hyundai's economical hatchback with youthful style, the Veloster is known for its unique three-door layout and generous load of standard features. While it's more about appearing sporty than objective performance, the Veloster can be optioned into a feisty contender in the hot compact segment.

What's New for 2016

The Veloster receives a new hood and grille, plus numerous updates to the available navigation system. Turbo models can now get a seven-speed automated manual transmission. A new Rally Edition takes aim at the tuner set.

Choosing Your Hyundai Veloster

At first glance, the Veloster looks like any other two-door hatchback with sporty aspirations. But look closely at the passenger side and you'll see a legitimate front-hinged rear door that permits hassle-free access to the backseat and cargo area. The Veloster offers more room in back for people and things than you would get in a coupe of similar size, though it's not to be confused with utility-oriented hatchbacks.

The standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine produces 138 horsepower when paired with the standard six-speed manual transmission, or 132 horsepower with the optional six-speed automated manual transmission known as DCT. Models with the DCT deliver about 31 mpg in combined driving.

The engine of choice for performance fans is a turbocharged version of the 1.6-liter, which delivers 201 horsepower and comes with either the manual transmission or a new seven-speed automated manual.

The Veloster is available in four trim levels:

Base

Carries the standard engine and a high level of equipment, including a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and satellite and Internet radio. The optional Style package adds a panoramic sunroof, an eight-speaker LG Dimension sound system, 18-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and chrome and piano-black interior accents. Models so equipped are eligible for the Technology package with a navigation system, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, automatic climate control, keyless ignition, and a household-style power outlet.

Turbo R-Spec

Receives the turbocharged engine and six-speed manual transmission, plus performance upgrades such as sport-tuned steering and suspension systems, and a torque-vectoring feature that automatically applies the brakes for improved handling around curves. The contents of the Style package come standard, along with an aerodynamic body kit, a sport shifter, fog lamps, LED taillights, and a novel feature that pumps engine roar through the audio speakers. Seat are covered in premium vinyl. Note that neither the automated transmission nor options packages are offered.

Turbo

A more civilized version of the R-Spec with an available seven-speed automated manual transmission and not-so-firm suspension and steering tuning. Leather upholstery comes standard, along with heated front seats with additional driver adjustments, keyless ignition, and unique styling elements. The Ultimate package tops off the Turbo with navigation, a panoramic sunroof, automatic headlamps, automatic climate control, and the household-style power outlet.

Rally Edition

Like the R-Spec, but with even firmer suspension tuning and 18-inch wheels. You also get a racing shifter and special badging and trim. The Rally is finished in exclusive Matte Blue paint.

CarsDirect Tip

Although the base model certainly looks sporty, it offers only average performance. If you want moves to match the Veloster's style, upgrading to a turbocharged model is practically mandatory. Be aware that the new Rally Edition is limited to 1,200 units, so don't dawdle if you have your heart set on one.
