Hyundai Veloster Overview

The sporty Veloster hatchback has three doors, with the right-side rear door improving access to the tight rear seat. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine delivers adequate power, and the precise manual shifter has low effort throws. A dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual and a conventional six-speed manual are available. Handling is responsive and secure. While the ride is quite stiff, it isn't punishing. Despite the split rear window, visibility to the rear is decent. A more powerful 201-hp turbo four and six-speed automatic are available. Reliability of both non-turbo and turbo is below average.
