Anyone who’s had the privilege of sitting behind the wheel of the Veloster knows that it’s a blast to drive – it’s nimble, light, and sporty enough to put a smile on your face. The one thing that’s been missing from the Veloster has been raw power. While 138hp is plenty to get you around town, not to mention reward you with up to 40mpg on the highway, many enthusiasts have been begging for more – and they’ll soon be granted their wish.
Introducing the 2013 Veloster Turbo. It’s the same winning formula, but with a kick – and that kick comes from a new turbocharged engine producing 201 horsepower (45% more than the standard Veloster) and 196 lb-ft of torque. This catapults the Veloster Turbo into the “sport compact” class, among the likes of the Golf GTI, Mini Cooper S, and Honda Civic Si.
We’ll bring you more information about the Veloster Turbo as it becomes available. Until then, be sure to check out our dealership’s website and our blog for other information on the Hyundai line-up, or stop by our showroom for a test drive of the 2012 Veloster.
