Hyundai Veloster Turbo Gets Torque Vectoring Control System
The incredibly sporty Hyundai Veloster coupe is getting some upgrades in convenience, safety, and performance for the 2014 model year.
The 138-horsepower base model, as well as the 201-horsepower Veloster Turbo, features cutting edge powertrain technologies such as direct injection and turbo.
This makes the Veloster line all the more appealing to a younger crowd who value fuel economy, low emissions, and great performance.
The performance of the Veloster in the marketplace is a sure sign of its success.
All variants have been brisk sellers, with supplies tight, especially in the more potent Turbo model.
The performance of the Veloster lineup has led to higher transaction prices and the residual value of the vehicle remaining strong.
RE-MIX Limited Edition Sold Out
The Veloster RE-MIX, the first limited edition from the family, is close to sold out. Sales of that model represent roughly 10% of total Veloster sales during the period it was available.
The success of the RE-MIX has prompted Hyundai to deliver a number of new special edition Velosters.
The next performance model is slated to make an appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Satandard Features On 2014 Veloster
Daytime running lights are now found on standard Veloster models. Also included are a rearview camera and a driver’s blind spot mirror, which are actually both now commonly found on the majority of compacts.
The 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo also features a new active sound design system that delivers the sound of the engine through the speakers.
This delivers sounds from the powertrain that sound especially cool when the car is being driven in a spirited manner.
Also included in the Turbo model is a Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) system.
The system collects data from wheel speed sensors which is then applied to the brakes on the inside wheel with the goal of simulating a limited slip diff.
