2.0 Premium 3dr Hatchback
2021 Hyundai Veloster

2021 Veloster Photos
The 2021 Hyundai Veloster hatchback features expressive shapes, strong dynamics and a punchy powertrain, at a good price. It's all about fun. And for 2021 it gets more fun, with a new 8-speed dual-clutch automatic on Veloster N versions.

With no rear passenger door on the driver's side, but one on the sidewalk side, it's called a three-door, not counting the hatch.

The cabin contains budget materials assembled in clean shapes, with a standard touchscreen having smartphone compatibility.

It's powered by three different 4-cylinder engines, two of them turbocharged. The base engine is a 2.0-liter inline-4 making 147 horsepower, while an available 1.6-liter turbo-4 makes 201 hp and can do six-second 0-60 mph sprints. Finally there is a 250-hp turbo-4 in the Veloster N. If that's still not enough, you can get it with 275 hp.

Available transmissions include a 6-speed manual or 6-, 7-, or 8-speed automatic transmissions.

Every Veloster holds its own on curvy roads with good steering and a competent ride, but Veloster Turbo and Veloster N models are superb.

Technically the Veloster seats four, but not in reality; the rear seat is cramped and not for adults. Behind the second row there's nearly 20 cubic feet of cargo space, which grows to more than 45 with the seats folded.

A Veloster with the base engine and automatic transmission rates 27 mpg city, 34 highway, 30 combined; the 6-speed manual brings the mileage down by 2 mpg.

The 1.6-liter turbo-4 nets 26/33/29 mpg with a manual transmission, 28/34/30 mpg when equipped with an automatic.

Even the powerful Veloster N gets good mileage; with a manual transmission the Veloster N rates 22/29/25 mpg.

The IIHS called the 2020 Veloster a Top Safety Pick last year. Automatic emergency braking and active lane control are standard.
