Power and economy are beautifully balanced in the Veloster. It may be a hatch on the passenger side but on driver’s side it’s a sporty coupe. On Elite models the 6-speed dual clutch transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters enables you to zip through the gears. Veloster’s muscular lines are not just about looking good but also increasing aerodynamics. As the 1.6L GDi engine generates an impulsive 103 kW at 6,300 rpm, slipperiness equals fuel savings.
The suspension too is tuned for drivability, delivering greater agility, performance and fuel efficiency. All of this means you’ll find the Veloster is equally at home just purring around the city or being pushed on the open road.
Typically found on high-end cars, the sophisticated 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters incorporates the latest technology, while delivering smooth and efficient power. (Turbo 7-speed DCT models only)
The 1.6L GDi engine generates an impulsive 103 kW at 6,300 rpm. And when it comes to grunt, the Veloster Turbo is even harder to match. Its twin-scroll turbocharged engine with front-mounted intercooler, delivers all the on-demand muscle you’d expect and then some - packing in 46% more power and 60% more torque.
The front wheels are built using a McPherson strut, for improved handling and smoother driving.
In boldly declaring its aim to become the most fuel-efficient automaker on the planet, Hyundai has set a very high bar for itself. The Veloster delivers on that promise with a GDi gasoline engine and dual-clutch transmission that helps to deliver better fuel economy without compromising power and driving pleasure.
