2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo | from US$21,950.00 | www.hyundai.com
still getting use to the unusual three-door Hyundai Veloster introduced last year? yeah. though it has a decidedly sleek form but its three-door configuration is anything but normal and its 1.6 naturally aspirated petrol unit’s performance is fairly regular at best. so for the racer in you, you probably want to opt for the new higher spec Hyundai Veloster Turbo, coming to you this Summer (in the U.S, naturally). the Veloster Turbo is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline direct injection (T-GDI) engine, which unleashes a healthy 201 horsepower (150 kW) and 264 Nm of torque (195 lb-ft). aesthetically, it sports a significantly larger and bolder hexagonal front grille, projection headlights with LED accents, sculpted side skirts, a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser vents, LED taillights and it will be available in an awesome Matte Gray paint. in short, this Veloster Turbo is no push-over on the road. some of the key features of this up-spec Veloster includes sport-tuned engine intake, one-piece stainless steel exhaust manifold and twin-scroll turbocharger housing for improved durability, electrically controlled waste-gate for precise boost control, sports-tuned steering with quicker ratio steering rack, and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 215/40R 18 85V Kumho Solus rubbers. in the interior, standard equipment includes electroluminescent gauge cluster, leather seats with driver-side lumbar support, front heated sport seats, Turbo model-only standard Graphite Black interior with blue accents and headliner graphics, race-inspired push-button start, alloy pedals and a pair of TFT screens. the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo will be available with a price tag of $21,950 for the manual version and for $1,000 more, you will snag yourself the automatic model. roll past the jump for a few more look. trust us, it will be worth the look cos’ this baby definitely looks ten times better than the original Veloster.
