Hyundai introduces the unique hot-hatch Veloster Turbo

The hot-hatch segment of the car industry has long been dominated by Europeans but Hyundai has decided to give it a try with the new Veloster. The Veloster has three doors, a driver side door and two passenger side doors.

The outside of the Veloster is sporty and from the front you can tell instantly it is a Hyundai with its noticeable big hexagonal grille. From the rear though Hyundai may be the last thing that comes to mind, but together with the slopping roofline the car is a head-turner and really stands out. There are two centrally located large exhaust pipes that are accented by a rear diffuser. As expected the Veloster is aggressive and loud in its appearance but also in its overall nature, which is appealing to Hyundai Arizona drivers.

Inside the cabin is modern, clean, and upscale. Leather seats with Turbo stitched onto them, sunroof, and contrasting interior color all come standard. There is also a standard 7-inch LCD touchscreen infotainment system, and an available 115V outlet for power, plus connections for video or flash drive, and even an Xbox 360 hook up, that together make this car fun and modern.

Under the hood the Veloster Turbo comes standard with a six-speed manual 1.6-liter Twin-scroll turbocharged intercooled inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque, the same power as the much less fuel efficent 2.0-liter turbo found in the Volkswagen Golf. There is also an available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC and paddle shifters to Veloster Phoenix consumers. The Veloster weighs less than most cars in its class, which gives it a better power-to-weight ratio and has an EPA fuel efficiency of 27/38 or 31 combined. The Veloster features front suspension gas-charged hydraulic shock absorbers that deliver a responsive and sporty ride. The Motor Driven Power Steering that comes standard automatically improves steering response and allows the car to handle the road with ease. The rear stabilizing bars help improve control on curves.

Overall the Veloster is a slick, modern, sporty car that is unique and fun to drive. Head to your Phoenix Hyundai dealer for a test drive today!
