Turbo Power Helps Iconoclast Make The Cut



The standard Hyundai Veloster has always reminded us of that talented freshman in high school who has everything going for him but simply lacks the strength his first year out to make the coveted varsity team.

The Veloster certainly has the looks, with unique asymmetrical four-door hatchback styling and a motorcycle-inspired interior. It also has the content, arriving with a long list of standard equipment, reasonably priced options and an impressive standard warranty. What's kept the Veloster on the JV roster, however, is what it lacks under the hood.

But things have changed between model years. The Veloster, like the scrawny kid who lifts weights all summer, has arrived for its sophomore season with a freshly toned physique and much-needed brawn. Is the new muscle enough to be competitive? How will it match up against the other players? Most important, is it enough to make the final cut?

The standard Veloster, introduced at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, debuted with a direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder rated at 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. It's a respectable output for a naturally aspirated engine (86.25 hp per liter), but its 0-60 sprint in just over eight seconds certainly didn't match its sporty appearance. Enthusiasts held their collective breath for the expected turbocharged model.

It has an impressive output of 125.63 hp per liter, eye-for-eye with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.

We didn't have to wait long. In January of this year, Hyundai upped the ante when it introduced its Veloster Turbo at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. Under the hood of the front-wheel-drive four-door hatchback is a slightly modified version of the same direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder, now with its intake boosted to 19 psi. The new rating works out to 201 horsepower and 194 pound-feet of torque – an impressive output of 125.63 hp per liter (eye-for-eye with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport).

While the standard Veloster is offered with a traditional six-speed manual or a six-speed "DCT" dual-clutch automatic (Hyundai calls it "EcoShift" as it is tuned for fuel economy), the Veloster Turbo arrives with a choice of a traditional six-speed manual or a traditional torque converter six-speed automatic (Hyundai calls it "Shiftronic" – it arrives with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters). All Velosters remain front-wheel drive.

Before we dive into driving impressions, let's talk pricing.

The new Veloster Turbo will start at $21,950 (plus $775 destination). That represents a $2,500 premium over a similar naturally aspirated Veloster. The manual gearbox is standard fit, with the automatic adding $1,000 to the price. Opt for the Ultimate Package (bundling a navigation system with rearview camera, panoramic sunroof, automatic headlights, backup sensors and a 115-volt power outlet) and it will cost you an additional $2,500. Completely loaded, with automatic and destination included, the Veloster Turbo will set you back $26,225.

Completely loaded with automatic and destination included, the Veloster Turbo will set you back $26,225.

One of the biggest cool factors about the Veloster Turbo is its available matte gray paint seen here. It's a $1,000 option, and be warned – it's not like any other finish. You may like the looks, but Hyundai advises that you never take it through a car wash (even a touchless wash) and that you only use certain types of cloths and towels while wiping it down. To make sure owners have the right materials for handling this special paint, Hyundai will supply a car care kit and owner's guide to any customer who checks the matte option box. As we learned in the product presentation, this paint certainly isn't for everyone.

But there is much more to the Veloster Turbo than just a whirling Borg-Warner turbine integrated into the exhaust header. The premium model arrives with a unique front and rear fascia, complete with a ground effects package and fog lights. Both the intake and exhaust note have been tuned for sportier sound and the steering rack has been recalibrated to better please the enthusiast. The headlights are upgraded to a projector-beam type, and LEDs are used in the headlight cluster and taillights (Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager of product planning, credits Autoblog's own Zach Bowman with planting the LED taillight "seed" during one of our podcasts). Lastly, the side mirrors receive turn signal indicators and the standard wheels are bumped up to 18-inch alloys.

Inside the turbo-exclusive cabin (graphite black with blue accents), passengers will find upgraded heated leather sport seats, an electroluminescent gauge cluster and the obligatory "Turbo" graphics in the headliner. Add up what you get for your $2,500 and the Veloster Turbo is a bargain over the standard model.

We spent a good part of a day with the Veloster Turbo, zooming across the low Los Angeles basin before heading up – yes, up – to the Mt. Baldy ski resort at 6,500 feet above sea level. The roads were a good mix of mundane freeway and challenging mountain canyons, just the way we like it. Best of all, we were pleased to spend time with both transmissions.

Approach it from any angle, and the Veloster Turbo does an excellent job of setting the tone. Walk up to it from the rear, and the twin cannons exiting in the middle of the back fascia proclaim their intent. From the front, the sinister-looking grille with its flanking round fog lamps appears just as angry. The side sills, slightly more aggressive than the standard model, are more subtle but obvious once pointed out. The interior continues the theme, with its sport buckets and darker tones. All of the turbo's enhancements over the standard model are well integrated – nothing looks tacky or aftermarket (we wish we could say this industry-wide).

The term "brisk" is more appropriate than "breakneck" when describing its escape velocity.

First on our plate was the six-speed manual, as we assumed the turbocharged three-pedal Hyundai would be our favorite of the two. Acceleration from a standstill was good, but there was a small bit of lag as the little four built boost. Drop the clutch and it will peel the tread off its tires, but once they hook up, the term "brisk" is more appropriate than "breakneck" when describing the Hyundai's escape velocity. The gearbox is fantastic (it is configured with wider ratios when compared to the standard model) and shifts are a pleasure, but it just doesn't feel as strong as its 195 foot-pounds would lead many to believe (we had a 180-pound adult in the front passenger seat of the 2,800 pound Veloster Turbo, so maybe that affected things?).

The turbocharged engine felt much stronger than its naturally aspirated counterpart, no question about it. Keep it out of the taller gears and above 2,500 rpm, and it playfully scoots around town. On the highway, the turbocharger makes merging and passing much more comfortable, and the added thrust means there is less of a need to drop out of sixth for maneuvering. Best of all was the long trek up the road to Mt. Baldy, when the pressurized engine ignored our altitude and pulled as if the air wasn't getting thinner. We do like turbochargers.

Hyundai fits the Veloster Turbo with larger front rotors, but the suspension remains the same.

Hyundai fits its Veloster Turbo with larger front rotors, always welcomed, but the suspension remains the same. Most automakers automatically bump up ride stiffness when a "TURBO" badge goes on the rear, but Hyundai's engineering team felt the standard damping and spring rates were near-perfect. We defend their decision, as we gently tossed the slightly longer (167.3 inches) and wider (71.1 inches) turbo around tight mountain corners without worry of kissing steel guardrails. Body roll is minimal, with tire grip being the limiting cornering factor. The retuned electric steering with a quicker ratio isn't going to rumble in your hands the old-school way, but it is precise and nicely weighted. The sport bucket seats are attractive and supportive, delivering plenty of bolster and back support for your author's six-foot, two-inch 190-pound frame. We never found ourselves sliding out of the seats (don't look for grab handles, as the Veloster, like most new cars, doesn't have them due to packaging restrictions with side curtain airbags).

We swapped vehicles at the summit, and jumped behind the wheel of the traditional six-speed automatic (PRND+/-). It didn't take long for us to realize that the turbocharged engine is a good mate to the automatic. No, make that the ideal mate.

The 6MT model will deliver 26 mpg city and 38 mpg highway on regular unleaded fuel.

Automatic transmissions are ideally suited for turbocharged engines as they don't lose as much boost between shifts (in layman's terms, everyone's head doesn't go back-and-forth with each gear change like it does in a manual), so they are often quicker than a 6MT rowed by a human in terms of acceleration. To make acceleration even quicker, Hyundai has specified narrower gear ratios in the slushbox than they are on the DCT so the engine stays even tighter within its powerband during gear changes. Despite tipping the scales 88 pounds heavier than its manual sibling, the combination of sustained boost and more ideal ratios means the automatic feels livelier, more responsive and overall quicker than the standard gearbox. Forget about the paddle shifters or manual mode, as the slushbox transmission does a commendable job simply left in... Drive.

It is important to remember that the Veloster Turbo is every bit as much about sipping fuel as it is about performance. While there are others in this segment that are ultimately quicker and deliver more sport, none can replicate Hyundai's efficiency. According to early estimates, the Veloster Turbo 6MT will deliver 26 mpg city and 38 mpg highway on regular unleaded fuel. As MC Hammer would bellow (and Hyundai is justified to parrot), "You can't touch this."

For the enthusiasts expecting a GTI-killer, keep searching. For those who try to compare this to a Subaru WRX, you are at the wrong party.

It's safe to say that we enjoy the Veloster Turbo much more than its naturally aspirated sibling, but don't expect a genuine pocket rocket. While it is unquestionably fun to drive, this car never lets you forget that it is chasing fuel economy, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Aside from the very usable power, which doesn't seem to incur much of a penalty at the pump, we like its more aggressive and unique styling both inside and out. And, thanks to a bump in standard equipment, the reasonable price premium is very easy to swallow.

For the enthusiasts expecting a Volkswagen GTI killer, keep searching. For those who try to compare this to a Subaru WRX, you are at the wrong party. But for the consumer looking for a nicely weighted balance of sport and economy in a very stylish package, the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo just may be the slickest ride.

It appears the kid has earned his varsity letter.

      So... This slots in better with, say, a Civic Si than it does a Focus ST? I'm not saying that's a bad thing; this seems to be a reasonably fun car to drive, with enough power to be entertaining, while still putting up fuel economy numbers that will make the thrifty enthusiast smile. The fact that it runs on regular unleaded is even better. I'm kind of stuck between this, a Focus ST, or a Golf TDI as my next car.

        hello coopwrx, please see my comment below, the backseats are usable, done more than enough miles in a Veloster to know what the backseats are like. I think you ought to **** off and all. Do you own one of these cars? Didn't think so, don't just base you're opinions on the lies of other people. Don't comment on a car like this unless you have actually seen one in person, then drive one, and compare your opinion to it then to what it is now. Even i thought it was **** (past tense) before I saw one, was looking at buying a FORD FIESTA, but quickly changed my mind after i saw the Veloster.

        Almost all the back seats are unuseable on 2 door cars. The Porche 911 has ridiculously tiny rear seats. They actually touch the backs of the front seats most of the time. Its basically a 2 seater with a 4 seat layout, this goes for the Veloster and the 911 and like I said most all of the 2 door 4 seaters.

          BULLSHIT you really can talk a lot of **** cant you. I have a Veloster, the back seats in mine are fine, me and my friends use it all the time and have never had any problems with the leg room in the back, went for a drive for the UK to Hungry in it. 5500 miles each way, took it up to 120mph and kept it there pretty much the whole way, think my average speed was about 113mph. Got it up to just shy of 140mph at one point. Don't talk about a car you don't know, or you don't own. I drive mine on a daily basis. Usually have mates in the back. Never had a complaint about the leg room, or to little room anywhere in the car, if I had to pick a fault with the car, it would be with the shaped seats. I own the Veloster Sport - leather seat version. They can get a bit uncomfortable after about 4 or 5 hours worth of driving. And the leather dash and steering wheel can get quite hot in the sun. So I stop for a break every 3 or 4 hours and park in the shade. Problems solved.

        Well this car is not geared as being a "family hauler". If anything this car is geared more towards people typically declaring independence from families, and wanting something flashy that stands out from the typical Corollas, Civics, and Sentras out on the road. In other words "individuality"

      Bought my new Velositer on June 2, 2012. I specifically purchased the car for it's size and gas milage. The Veloster is a great little car, it get's me where I need to go and back, in style, every time! Great features and very comfortable to drive. If the situation calls for more power, I switch off the eco button and accelerate. The power delivers. (I drive I 95 highway in Delaware/PA every day.) If you want a stylish little car with fantastic up-graded features, at an affofadable price piont, for use as an every day commuter car, purchase the Veloster! I do not reccomend purchasing the Veloster if you want race it against any of the the classic muscle cars, It does not have that kind of horse power, that's how the Veloster delivers on the great gas mileage! (I'm averaging 46.7miles per gallon on the highway......Love it!

      I wish people would stop writing this is a car for young singles........I'm 50, married, with teenagers, and I love this car! When I was 17 years old and in my Senior year of high school (1980) I purchased my first car, right off the show-room floor. It was a two seater (no back seat) Black and Silver 1980 Datsun 280zx, with chrome, spoke, American Racing Wheels with a v-6 engine; a TRUE SPORTS CAR! We older people have one advantage over the younger generation, we have a lot more experience in purchasing cars. At 50, I have owned 14 different makes & models of cars since 1980! Therefore, I feel I am qualified to say I know what is and what is not a sports car! The Veloster is a "sporty" car for all ages! With the Veloster's (almost not visible) passenger back door, it allows the kids to hop in too! It can even fit a car seat, but it's not my first choice for hauling infants! It really is a great car for everyone! Even my 75 year old mother who just purchased a new $88,000 XJL Jaguare with all the bells and whistles, loves the Veloster! She always chooses to take the Volester over the Jag when going to the beach, it gets better gas mileage and has the comforts of her top of the line luxury car! Nav system, great sound system, leather heated seats, sunroof, blue link system (built in phone system) Back up cam system, the list goes on.....Plus it's much easier to find a parking space for a little car verses a big car!

        I considered a normal Veloster before I got a CR-Z, but the 6MT CR-Z was the (slightly) faster car then but gets significantly better real world gas mileage. I do like this turbo model, but I don't like how Hyundai fudges with their numbers to look good on comparison sheets, while not stacking up in practice. I think if this turbo was out when I got my car though I'd have a real hard decision!

          How exactly does Hyundai fudge numbers created by United States government testing by the EPA that is out of their control? Let me guess, Kim Jung Il is not really dead, he's actually just infiltrating the feds. *facepalm* BTW, on fueleconomy.gov, the "user submissions" on fuel economy for the Veloster is 40mpg, which is above what the EPA testing shows for combined fuel economy.

        So are you saying that if I my partner isn't employed and I worked for Hyundai, they wouldn't extend him benefits if we were in a domestic partnership? Where did you hear this anyhow?

          Correct. It is on the HRC business equality index (also on gaywheels.com, do a google search). Hyundai, Kia, Porsche and Suzuki are the automakers that still do not offer LGBT benefits. Every other automaker has some form of equality policy. Ford, Toyota and (believe it or not) Chrysler scored perfect 100s this year on the equality index.

          You know, people that scream and whine about the whole LGBT thing really irritate me and make me ashamed of being gay myself. I hate to be associated with most as all they do is whine and moan about every possible thing in life. I guess stereotypes are there for a reason.

      This car looks like a compilation of all of Hyundai's worst design ideas.
