This week's review car is the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. The non-turbo Veloster makes 138 hp. The Turbo makes 201—a healthy boost (pun intended). Our review model is mated to the six-speed automatic, but power is still quite good. There is some turbo lag, but the car is much more entertaining compared to the normally aspirated 1.6-liter mill, which is also found in the Accent and Kia Rio.
I really like the car's looks, and love, love, love the twin tail pipes. It's a sharp little number. I'm, not sure I dig the dark chrome inserts in the 19" wheels, but so be it. Handling is good, and the car feels tossable in the corners. It also has a great stereo and the interior looks really neat. Is it worth the $26,320? We'll find out. Stay tuned.
