Quirky little car, and it's put together nice. A guest recently traded in a fully loaded black on black Veloster for a black on black RX350 F-Sport.

I like just about everything about it besides that ugly baby tooth grill and that puny little 1.6. This thing needs the 2.4 from the Sonata standard or at least the 2.0 from the Elantra sport.

Default Hyundai Veloster Turbo facelift tackles the Nurburgring [video]


Quote:
Should be introduced later this year or early next year

The facelifted Hyundai Veloster Turbo has been spied stretching its legs on the Nürburgring.

The model is heavily disguised but appears to feature the usual styling tweaks including a new front bumper and restyled headlights. The changes are less noticeable at the rear but the car will keep its aggressive diffuser and center-mounted dual exhaust system.

Power will likely be provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 201 bhp (150 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque. However, there has been speculation that the engine could be upgraded to free up a few extra ponies.

The facelifted Veloster is expected to be introduced later this year or early next year, so expect to learn more in the coming months.

Hyundai Presents Revised 2015 Veloster in Korea with 7-Speed DCT, Fake Engine Sound System

Quote:
We wouldn't call it a full-blown facelift since cosmetic revisions are mostly limited to trims and colors, but Hyundai has revealed the refreshed Veloster in Korea.

The domestic market model sports darker silver trims on the outside and gains three new exterior colors, including a matte paint, while on the inside, Hyundai added two-tone color options for the seats, door and center console trims, and seat belts, a new sports steering wheel with improved grip, plus the company's latest Blue Link telematic system.

Most notably, the 2015 Veloster receives Hyundai's new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission as a replacement for the conventional six-speed automatic, said to improve both performance and fuel economy.

Hyundai's Flex Steer system that allows drivers to select between different steering-weight modes also makes its appearance on the car.

Finally, the Koreans added an "engine sound equalizer", an electronic feature that offers the ability to both adjust the volume and select from six different engine sounds, which of course, are fake.

At this point, and aside from the 7-speed dual clutch transmission, we still don't know how many of these updates will be present on the European and North American version of the facelifted Veloster.

I completely dislike the current transmission in that car: it revs way to quickly, doesn't change fast enough and it wastes a **** ton of gas. I will be surprised if the new transmission will function properly.

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a nice car, but it isn't the best car to drive out there. I am happy that I went from the Veloster to the FR-S.

I sampled a 6MT from a trade-in with iirc the 1.6L turbo, was a peppy little car and loaded decently with amenities. Quirky thing but I would never buy one for myself.

Turbo variant gains a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission

Hyundai has introduced the 2016 Veloster at the Chicago Auto Show.

Set to go on sale in May, the updated model has a modestly revised exterior with a new hood, a dark gray grille surround and restyled 17-inch alloy wheels.

Interior changes are limited but include newly available black seats with yellow accents as well as an upgraded infotainment system with several new features including HD Radio, Siri Eyes Free integration, SiriusXM Travel Link and next-generation Blue Link telematics.

The Veloster Turbo goes a step further as it gains a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels with a machined finish.

The high-performance variant also boasts an "enhanced" electroluminescent gauge cluster, a black headliner and sportier seats with more aggressive bolstering. The Turbo R-Spec also gains red seat belts.

Hyundai has taken the wraps off the 2016 Veloster Rally Edition.

Based on the Veloster Turbo R-Spec, the Rally Edition has an exclusive Matte Blue exterior with 18-inch lightweight RAYS wheels with a black finish. The car also has special badging and "carbon-fiber-look aero accents."

Interior changes are limited but include embroidered floor mats and black leather sport seats with blue accents and "Turbo" lettering.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 201 bhp (150 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission with a B&M Racing Sport Shifter.

Speaking of performance, the Rally edition has sportier springs and dampers as well as a stiffer stabilizer bar.

Production will be limited to 1,200 units but there's no word on pricing.
