Hyundai Veloster MK1 Turbo
The first generation of the Hyundai Veloster was unveiled on January 10, 2011, at the Detroit Auto Show and in 2012, Hyundai launched the Veloster Turbo which was the performance derivative of the coupe/hatchback model.
The car is fitted with a 1.6-liter Gamma turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine producing 204 hp (150kw) at 6000 rpm and 264 Nm of torque from 1750 – 4500 rpm, paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger that when combined with the GDI fuel system, results in instantaneous power delivery. Compared to the base model, Veloster Turbo features a quicker ratio steering rack and a revised steering calibration. The car rides on Kumho Solus KH25 215/40R18 85V tires and is fitted with a McPherson strut front suspension, coil springs, gas shock absorbers and a 24 mm diameter front stabilizer. The rear suspension is a light-weight V-torsion beam, using monotube shock absorbers for ride comfort.
On the exterior, the Veloster Turbo features a larger hexagonal front grille, LED headlight accents, side skirts and a redesigned rear bumper with a more prominent diffuser, dual exhaust pipes and a set 18-inch wheels. Inside we find full leather seats with the word “Turbo” stitched into the seatbacks, supervision cluster and alloy pedals.
The model was replaced by the second generation Veloster Turbo in 2018, while Hyundai also presented a more hardcore Veloster N version for the newer model.
