Howards Hyundai Veloster Turbo


Under the bonnet, a 1.6 litre GDi turbo engine delivers over 200 bhp resulting in an impressive power-to-weight ratio that doesn’t leave you wanting more. The Veloster uses a twin-scroll turbo to dramatically reduce lag and maintain responsive acceleration, hitting 0-60 in just under 9 seconds. To improve handling around corners, Hyundai have fitted firmer dampers which do provide a firm ride but keep the car planted for optimal hide speed handing. Safety wise, the brakes have been bulked up to keep the driver fully in control, reducing stopping distances and matching the engine performance. The dual exhaust screams sports car whilst the price tag offers serious value for money. However, at 24mpg for urban driving, and 34mpg on the motorway, fuel economy is something that could be improved, although for it’s competitive for it’s class and seems to be a central priority to Hyundai’s plans for 2015.  

Interior wise the bucket style seats are supportive and provide a comfortable ride, counter acting the firm suspension in place for optimised performance. Boasting some of the best interior space within its class, the Veloster is deceptively roomy. The boot can comfortably fit three suitcases, combining practicality with a powerful presence that remains aerodynamic. The rear seats can be handily split 60:40 for even more space and the 5 door accessibility, unique to the class, means you end up with a coupe combined with a hatchback and ultimately the best of both worlds. Technology wise a 7inch touchscreen sits in comfortable reach of the steering wheel, powering both the SATNAV, cabin entertainment and an integrated camera for assisted reversing.

The shape and overall appearance is streamline and sporty, with a redesigned front grille, prominent fog lights, 18inch alloys and the rear wing all adding to both design and functionality for the Veloster Turbo.

Powerful in stance, conservative on fuel, the Veloster Turbo champions modern performance that epitomises the evolution of greener turbo power.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
