The Hyundai Veloster Turbo will be powered by a 1.6-litre GDI engine with a high-compression, twin-scroll turbocharger.
The new 1.6-litre T-GDI unit generates 186 ps and 270 Nm of torque which will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 8.4 seconds (manual) compared to the 9.7 seconds (manual) of the normally-aspirated Veloster.
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission – developed in-house by Hyundai – featuring a wider gear ratio spread to handle the additional torque output than the normally-aspirated Veloster.
The Veloster Turbo is fitted with a quicker-ratio steering rack and a revised steering calibration to match, which provide for precise cornering, feedback and control. The front and rear suspension set-ups have been tuned to match the expectations of European drivers.
The trapezoidal centre exhaust tailpipes of the normally-aspirated Veloster have been replaced with two larger free-flowing circular pipes, allowing for a more robust sound.
The Veloster Turbo will come with Hyundai’s Five Year Triple Care assurance – a combination of a five-year unlimited warranty, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.
