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.

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as 100,000 miles on their odometers, they’re ...

Rumormill: Facelifted Hyundai Veloster to get new 7-speed DCT, Flex Steer

Oct 29 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Since spotting one testing earlier this year (pictured above), we know that a refreshed version is on the way eventually, but that car keeps a lot of its secrets hidden under camouflage. New rumors from ...
