Yet it could be that you that crazy gimmick of two doors on one side and one on the other after a while tired and only bother you, but we want to hear from the Veloster owners among you.
For this story, it is important that the Veloster is now equipped with an engine that does more justice to his appearance. The regular 1.6 petrol engine has thanks to a twin-scroll turbocharger with 46 hp gained, which brings the total up to 186. The tension went up a little stockier, from 167 to 270 Newton meters. Look, now we’re talking . Now you at least a perfectly acceptable 8.4 seconds to 100 km / h, instead of somewhat sneue 9.8 of ordinary Veloster. The Turbo looks a lot thicker straight out: fierce-looking spoiler material, a different front and rear bumpers, exhausts in a thick diffuser and 18 inch wheels – nice. In addition, the Turbo only in some eccentric colors: gray and matmetallic matmetallic eggplant, and pearl white. And it was not exactly a car for shy types.
Steering, brakes, chassis: it’s all a bit sharper for the Turbo. It feels indeed slightly firmer, slightly more focused, and yet it is not the Veloster become what we had hoped. This is due in large part to the motor. He picks up nicely – that torque’ll figure it out, but you can not tell from the power. If you had claimed that he produced 150 horsepower, we also believed. He sounds raw and uninspired, and it only gets worse as you get higher in the rev chases him. There you are soon done with it, also because it all feels not very fast and you rarely get the idea that the Veloster is fun in itself has.
The damping of the suspension is pretty hard, but the suspension exactly what to week, allowing you (with some exaggeration) and bouncing on the sloping curve continues. Few companies have in recent years as well as Hyundai busy, but the Veloster is still a thing to happen to him really fun.
