2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/veloster/2013/?id=32972 When the Hyundai Veloster was released in 2011 many enthusiasts were excited to see a fantastic looking and affordable sport compact car that would give the other hot hatchbacks in the segment a run for their money. The let down came when the hood was opened to reveal a 138 horsepower 1.6 liter naturally aspirated engine that was more suited for fuel efficiency rather that for performance. Well now you can have your cake with the release of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo! The base price on the turbo model is $21,950. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo is powered by a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine based on the standard Veloster Gamma GDi engine. The turbo motor has a lower compression ratio at 9.5:1 to handle the added Boost pressure. The gasoline direct injection (GDi) motor also sports Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT). Power output for the turbo engine is 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque which puts the Veloster turbo right in the middle of the sport compact car pack. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual but there is also is 6-speed automatic version with paddle shifters. The manual is the more fuel efficient transmission at 26 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. On the outside the Hyundai Veloster turbo model is distinguishes itself from the regular model in a few ways. For started, the Veloster turbo has a huge wide-mouth front grille opening to let in vast amounts of cool air. There is also a lower lip spoiler on the turbo model. Another cool feature found on the turbo-only model are the LED lights front and back. The front projector headlights sport LED daytime running light accents which are normally reserved for high end luxury vehicles. The wheels on the Hyundai Veloster turbo are 18-inch alloy units that combine both a matte and chrome finish. The limited edition matte gray pain job will set you back an additional $800, but the finished result is well worth it. The standard non-turbo Veloster features squared Exhaust tips while the turbo model has rounded ones. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo can be considered one of the hottest new hatchbacks on the market. Not only does the Veloster turbo have over 200 horsepower, but this car can get up to 38 MPG on the highway. The 2013 Veloster turbo looks great and comes packed with tons of standard features.

2017 Hyundai Kona
NEW Hyundai Subcompact Crossover 2018. Hyundai picked Kona as the name of its new SUV after the Kona district on the Big Island of Hawaii, revealing in a way the funky character of the new model. The new Hyundai Kona also claims that it will offer best-in-class interior space along with an attractive design, which is sort of obligatory in the segment. With rivals like the Nissan Juke, the Renault Captur and the Opel Mokka X coming in mind, we understand why Hyundai would opt for a visually strong model in this class. The test car remains under pretty heavy wraps, keeping its general styling off the radar for now. Only the front end gives away its arrangement, with a set of slim LEDs mounted on each corner of the bonnet and a set of headlights resting underneath them. As for the cabin we showed you in an earlier scoop, it follows the latest Hyundai design language we saw in models like the i30 and the Ioniq, featuring a tablet-like infotainment screen. The new Hyundai Kona will be most likely based on the i20 platform, using a mix of parts from both the i20 and the i30, including some of the latter’s engines. Hyundai is planning to reveal the new Kona this summer or at latest during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
