New 2016 Hyundai Veloster at Patrick Hyundai for Chicago, IL
If your ideal car is one that is small, fuel-efficient and offers great value, a compact hatchback could be the way to go. There are many cars in this class that meet those requirements, and the new 3-door Hyundai Veloster stands out from the pack in the crowded compact segment. Expressive styling and smart features like the stealth third door turn form and function into a powerful attraction. The result offers the look of a sporty coupe with the added benefit of easy access for rear-seat passengers. The 2016 Veloster Turbo model now offers a performance-oriented 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT), a new machined-finish turbo-exclusive wheel design, a sportier seat design, and more. Also for 2016, all Veloster models offer a revised hood appearance without vent accents, a dark gray grille surround, 10mm-wider tires fitted to all 18-inch wheels, and new audio/navigation system functions.
Under the Veloster's Hood
The Veloster's powertrains carry over for 2016. Regular models still use the 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine; it makes 138 horsepower with the six-speed manual transmission and 132 hp with the six-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Veloster Turbo is again powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 201 horsepower. New for this engine is an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission with paddle shifters, the six-speed manual is standard on all models. Estimated fuel economy on the standard 1.6-liter engine averages at 30 mpg combined with the manual transmission (27 city/35 highway).
Design of Hyundai Veloster
When it comes to the exhaust, performance and style work hand-in-hand to provide a signature look. The Veloster's unique 3-door design gives it a style, feel, and look like no other vehicle in its class. Access all of your information and entertainment options via Veloster's standard multimedia LCD touchscreen that measures 7 inches with rearview backup camera. When you're carrying its high-tech key, Veloster will recognize you and unlock the vehicle with the push of a button on the driver's door, once you are in the driver's seat, it then allows you to start with just the push of a button. Use your smartphone connection for Destination Search powered by Google™ and added functionality including remote start, stop and climate control, plus additional multimedia capabilities including Pandora®. With video games being an important element of entertainment, Hyundai integrated an RCA cable and an available 115-volt power outlet in Veloster to support gaming consoles for ultimate gaming sessions or to watch videos on the seven-inch multimedia touchscreen when the vehicle is parked.
A three-door layout sets the 2016 Hyundai Veloster apart from other compact hatchbacks. While the single driver-side door creates a coupe-like appearance, the two smaller passenger-side doors provide added convenience for loading people or parcels. The 2016 Veloster offers the next-generation of Hyundai Blue Link®, with enhanced safety, service and infotainment telematics. Blue Link brings seamless connectivity directly into the car with technology like remote start, destination search powered by Google®, stolen vehicle recovery and more. Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System, high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management system are all standard on Veloster.
