: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Hyundai's youthful hatchback, the Veloster emphasizes style and features, if not actual performance. Buyers are sure to appreciate the crafty three-door layout, which makes the Veloster a lot more practical than it looks, but they'd best look elsewhere if they want performance that matches its looks.

What's New for 2017

The heavily equipped Veloster Value Edition joins the lineup.

Choosing Your Hyundai Veloster

The Veloster certainly looks the part of a sporty two-door hatchback, but there's more to it than that. The passenger side cleverly conceals a full-size rear door that provides easy access to the rear seat and cargo area. With the seat folded, the Veloster can handle up to 34.7 cubic feet of stuff. While that's less than a conventional hatchback, it surely beats a small coupe or sedan.

The standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine produces 132 horsepower and 120 lb-ft of torque, and comes with a six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic. The Veloster is EPA-rated at 31 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving with the automatic, or 30 mpg with the manual.

A turbocharged 1.6-liter is available on the Veloster Turbo R-Spec and Turbo, and delivers 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque for dramatically improved performance. The turbocharged engine is available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic. EPA ratings slip just a bit to 29 mpg combined with the automatic, and 28 mpg with the manual.

Engine and transmission availability varies by trim level:

Hyundai Veloster


Starting at $18,100 including destination, the base Veloster carries the non-turbo engine and a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic ($1,100). Other equipment includes a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, a seven-inch touchscreen, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

Value Edition

Comes standard with the automatic transmission (with paddle shifters), plus a panoramic sunroof, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, an eight-speaker sound system, and 18-inch wheels. The Value Edition is priced at $21,350.

Hyundai Veloster

Turbo R-Spec

Gets the turbocharged engine and manual transmission, along with sport-tuned suspension and steering systems. Aerodynamic body trim and projector headlights are included in the $21,600 price. Other equipment is similar to the model, except the automatic is not available.

Hyundai Veloster


Also packs the turbocharged engine, but without the R-Spec's stiffened suspension and steering, for $22,600. A seven-speed automatic (exclusive to this trim) is optional at $1,200. The interior features leather upholstery, heated front seats, and upgraded gauges. Even though it's the top trim, the Turbo lacks some of the Value Edition's standard features (navigation, sunroof, automatic climate control). These items require the $2,700 Tech Package, which also includes rear parking sensors.

CarsDirect Tip

The new Value Edition offers an incredible load of features for the money, so long as you can live with the mild performance of the base engine. If you decide to go the turbocharged route, the well-rounded Turbo is a better choice for daily driving than the less civilized Turbo R-Spec.
