Cheapest Veloster Turbo in the line

Hyundai has unveiled a new high performance version of its Veloster that is aimed at tuners and performance enthusiasts on a budget. The new Veloster Turbo R-Spec will be the least expensive Veloster Turbo in the line starting at $22,110 including the $810 destination charge. The car will get some unique touches to set it apart for other Veloster Turbo models.

It will come only in 6-speed manual and will have a factory installed B&M Sport Shifter. The seats will be cloth with red leatherette bolsters. It will also get special suspension and steering tuning. "We're thrilled to add the Veloster Turbo R-Spec to our growing family of enthusiast-oriented R-Spec models", said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. "The R-Spec takes the Veloster theme of affordable performance to an entirely new level that is sure to appeal to driving enthusiasts."

The car will get red trim on the outside and will be offered in four colors. It also gets R-Spec floor mats on the inside. The car will lose some of the standard features that are offered on other Veloster turbo models including push button start, auto up windows, and more.

October's Fastest-and Slowest-Selling Cars

Nov 3 2014 11:36am CST | Source: Cars.com

An all-new Ford Mustang is a rare thing indeed and that's why it's no surprise the redesigned pony car was the fastest-selling car in the country last month. New looks and a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine have made it a much-talked about commodity to be sure. But hold the phone.

A 708-hp Hyundai Sonata? Why, Yes, Have One

Nov 3 2014 10:44am CST | Source: Car and Driver

“Reliable power, guaranteed,” says Bisimoto, a tuner based in Ontario, California, east of Los Angeles. And that’s a good thing. Wouldn’t you be slightly concerned about squeezing 708 horsepower out of a rather pedestrian four-cylinder engine? The object of manipulation, in this case, is a Hyundai 2.4-liter Theta II engine, fitted in a Sonata four-door sedan. A Turbonetics TNX 82/64 turbocharger complete with a Turbonetics wategate and blow-off valve (we can a ...

2015 Hyundai Sonata: Best Car To Buy Nominee

Nov 2 2014 6:30am CST | Source: The Car Connection

The fully redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata is a very different sedan than the radically remade 2011 model that nudged in alongside mid-size mainstays like the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Honda Accord. In fact, with the calmer design, more laid-back demeanor, and almost obsequoius look and feel, it almost feels as if Hyund ...
