Meet the 2017 Veloster

Blue Veloster Rear

The 2017 Veloster is poised to follow in the footsteps of the 2016 version -- only better. Dubbed one of the "10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000" by Kelley Blue Book in 2016, the automaker made a Value Edition available on the hippest small vehicle on the market.

According to the automaker's product planning manager, Mike Evanoff, the 2017 Value Edition Veloster combines those options that are most popular in a convenient value package that emphasizes savings. The newest trim level gives the already value-oriented Veloster -- which starts at only $18,100 for its base model -- even more appeal to consumers.

Value Edition Veloster Performance

Hyundai Veloster Manual Transmission

The premium performance of the 2017 Value Edition Veloster rests in its 1.6-liter direct injection dual overhead cam gasoline engine that produces 132 horsepower and 120 lb-ft of torque. If you decide to turbocharge the engine by adding the twin-scroll turbo to the stainless steel exhaust manifold, you can expect to boost the Veloster's horsepower to 201 and its torque to 195 lb-ft. Regardless of which engine you choose, it can be paired with either a dual-clutch six-speed transmission or a six-speed manual.


Value Driven Using Superior Workmanship and Materials

Most of the Veloster's structure is designed of high-strength steel for a smoother ride via its sport-tuned suspension. Passengers will also appreciate that 65 percent of the car is made of steel which helps ensure a quieter ride. Its unique three-door design and generous 15.5 cubic-feet of cargo space stashed underneath its hatch are features that ensure that the Veloster offers ample room.
