The weird exterior is the first hint that 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo is unique. Under the hood is a 1.6 liter turbo engine, which really comes into play after hitting 6,000 rpm mark. The low speed is ideally suited for a body that is less than 3,000 pounds in weight. When it comes to the engine, the clutch system is a bit fidgety, which makes traversing through dense traffic cumbersome.
Despite the few shortcomings, the Veloster does have its merits. The unique take on hatchback design will definitely appeal to the “hipster” in you. The six speed system works fine after the initial minor hiccup. The interior is well suited for a budget friendly car, but might seem a bit barren to some. The seats are spacious and comfortable with a great radio setup to make long trips joyful.
The 2016 Hyundai Veloster is a very viable option considering the $24,000 price tag it is wearing. Opting for more expensive vehicles in the same category might seem appealing, but once you give the Veloster a try, you are definitely going to change your mind.
