Power & Performance
Looking for a hot hatch that comes at a great price? The Veloster is your model. With its precise steering, sporty handling, and world-class braking, this Hyundai hatchback is the total package. When you’re flying around turns, you can also fully appreciate the Veloster’s controlled body roll.
The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is pretty quick, getting you up to speed with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The optional turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine takes performance up a notch, with 201 horses and 195 pound-feet of torque.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but shoppers can also choose between two automatic transmissions. The optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is tuned for an especially sporty performance, but it also includes paddle shifters for manual gear selection.
The performance-based R-Spec model is especially quick, supplying the power you request without any hesitation. This trim model also includes performance tires and a six-speed manual transmission, optimizing your on-road precision.
