You’ll be amazed by Veloster’s 1.6L GDI engine. It’s both strong and efficient, generating up to 138 horsepower* and delivering up to an EPA-estimated 36 MPG Highway.
Paired with the automatic transmission, the Active ECO System makes a difference. Extensive computer modeling and powertrain performance mapping was used to modify engine and transmission control for fuel efficiency.* The result is up to an EPA-estimated 36 MPG Highway.
Typically found on high-end cars, the sophisticated 6-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)* with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters incorporates the latest technology while delivering smooth and efficient power. You also have the option of a peppy 6-speed manual transmission that’s fun to drive and puts you in total control at all times.
A modified front suspension, featuring gas-filled hydraulic monotube shock absorbers, delivers a sportier ride, while the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) has been tuned for increased steering response. Large front and rear stabilizer bars reduce body roll and improve handling and control on the curves.
When the road turns twisty and you want improved performance in the corners, Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) enhances vehicle stability and safety. It’s standard on Turbo and uses the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors to detect understeer then initiates specifically programmed braking to provide precise cornering without compromising driving dynamics.
Notice anything different on the passenger side of Veloster? Expressive styling and smart features like the stealth third door turn form and function into a powerful attraction. The result offers the look of a sporty coupe with the added benefit of easy access for rear-seat passengers.
A dozen duffels? Several snowboards? A mountain bike? The Veloster's convenient hatch and split fold-down rear seats give you versatility and space for whatever kind of gear you want to carry. So load up, head out and have fun.
The Veloster Turbo further sets itself apart with its wide-mouthed grille and bodykit for a low, aggressive stance. It also features fascia-encased front fog lights and projector headlights with unique LED accents.
Choose from a portfolio of vinyl designs created specifically for Veloster. And the best part about it, your Hyundai Graphics carry the same 3-year/36,000-mile warranty as your vehicle.
Finally, an audio system that sounds great and is up to the challenge of playing along with your life. The 450-watt Dimension AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 audio system* delivers plenty of power with 8 speakers—including an 8-inch subwoofer. Your audio options include streaming music via Bluetooth®-equipped mobile phones, playing compact discs or connecting devices like your iPod®.
Check out the sport bucket seats and you’ll notice the substantial cushioning and purpose-built side bolsters. Comfortable for the long haul, these bucket seats hold you tight through the corners and are always supportive.
Veloster comes complete with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, cruise control, and an integrated Bluetooth hands-free phone system with voice recognition and phonebook transfer. The controls you access most often are right at your fingertips, so you can get the most out of every drive and keep distractions to a minimum.
Some people were just meant for the big screen. Access all of your information and entertainment options via Veloster’s standard multimedia LCD touchscreen that measures 7 inches with rearview camera. Oh, did we mention that it’s an extra-cost option on Honda CR-Z?
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
Even our take on safety is extreme. Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System (OCS), high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system are all standard on Veloster. It‘s well above the average safety standard but then again there’s nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Working in tandem with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the Traction Control System (TCS) limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels. This reduces the occurrence of wheelspin and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.
Take every turn with added confidence. Available on Veloster Turbo and Turbo R-Spec, this simple yet sophisticated feature continuously monitors driving conditions and controls torque and braking force in conjunction with Electronic Stability Control (ESC). It works in real-time, in the background to enhance safety while cornering.
