Hyundai Veloster Turbo Review (Video)
Hyundai Veloster Turbo 2013 (Model Year) review – with video!
Most automakers have a following of customers that will buy their vehicles regardless, but in order to attract new buyers, they must rely on word of mouth, as well as positive reviews from the automotive media.
One of the biggest names in the car business is Drive Magazine, and they recently had the chance to review the Hyundai Veloster Turbo 2013 (Model Year).

Here is a brief look at what Drive Magazine thought of the car: What seemed to impress them most was power provided by the 1.6L turbo (T-GDI) engine that cranks out a ton of power and torque that you don’t often see in a car of this size and style.
What sets the Veloster Turbo apart from other turbos is the way in which they deliver that power.
Hyundai does that by delivering a progressive jolt of power that gets the job done without pushing the car to its limits too soon.
The sporty feel of the Velsoter is apparent as soon as you slip the car in to sixth gear and feel that smooth surge, but it definitely seems to perform at its peak when driving in fifth.
Shifting gears is smooth and the clutch feels good, although the general feeling is that it could use a little more weight. All of the power is sent to the front wheels, with the Kumho tires providing great grip, even in the slickest of conditions.
The steering performs well, especially at higher speeds and when cornering, although it is a little less responsive when traveling at a slower pace.
The suspension is great to, and for a smaller vehicle sporting this much power, is surprisingly quiet, with a rather pleasing hum radiating from under the bonnet.
The exterior of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo is as impressive as what is under the hood. It sports a broad, blacked out grille that forces a large amount of cold air into the intake.
The body has a 360 degree lower extension kit, which gives the appearance that the car is very low to the ground. The 18-inch alloy wheels twin exhaust pipes add to the overall sporty design and the huge sunroof adds a very nice finishing touch.
The interior is just as stylish as the outside with very comfortable part-leather sports chairs.
For an additional touch of style, “Turbo” is embroidered across the top of the seats. While most sports models have seats that can leave you numb on extended rides, the Veloster seats are comfy enough to leave your butt feeling good on a long ride.
The base model will come with a nice standard features package, but there will also be an upgrade that will include a Dimension stereo system, touchscreen media system, and reversing camera.
There may be even more features added to the list of options when the Veloster Turbo becomes available this year.
With all of the combines, the all-new Hyundai Veloster Turbo 2013 (Model Year) should prove to be a hot with existing customers, as well as those who are looking for a fantastic sporty hatchback at an incredible price.
