Typically found on high-end cars, the sophisticated 6-speed EcoShift® and 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmissions (DCT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters incorporate the latest technology while delivering smooth and efficient power. You also have the option of an enthusiast-focused 6-speed manual transmission that’s fun to drive and puts you in total control at all times.
You’ll be amazed by Veloster and Value Edition’s 1.6L GDI engine. It’s both strong and efficient, generating up to 132 horsepower and delivering up to an EPA-estimated 35 MPG Highway.
A modified front suspension, featuring gas-filled hydraulic monotube shock absorbers, delivers a sportier ride, while the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) has been tuned for increased steering response. A large front stabilizer bar reduces body roll and improves handling and control on the curves.
When the road turns twisty and you want improved performance in the corners, Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) enhances vehicle stability and safety. It’s standard on Turbo and uses the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors to detect understeer then initiates specifically programmed braking to provide precise cornering without compromising driving dynamics.
Some people were just meant for the big screen. Access all of your information and entertainment options via Veloster’s standard multimedia LCD touchscreen that measures 7 inches with rearview camera.
Newly designed seats for the Turbo and Rally Edition feature larger bolsters with Turbo embossing. Contrast stitching for the Turbo and Rally Edition accent the seats, head rests, door armrests, center armrest and steering wheel. All-new black seats with yellow inserts and yellow accent stitching are available on non-turbo Velosters depending on the exterior color selected.
Finally, an audio system that sounds great and is up to the challenge of playing along with your life. The Dimension AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 audio system* delivers plenty of power with 8 speakers—including an 8-inch subwoofer. Your audio options include streaming music via Bluetooth®-equipped mobile phones, or connecting devices like your smartphone. Standard on Veloster Value Edition, Turbo and R-Spec.
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 in the driver seat, one touch of the push button start brings the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine to life.
Even our take on safety is extreme. Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System (OCS), high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system are all standard on Veloster. It‘s well above the average safety standard but then again there’s nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Make the most of your own personal safety features: your eyes and ears. When you engage reverse gear, the standard rearview camera sends a live feed to the 7-inch touchscreen in the center console. Superimposed guides aid in backing up while available warning sensors sound to help you avoid obstacles.
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
Enabling the driver to maintain confident control in difficult braking situations, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps balance braking forces at each wheel of the vehicle depending on the weight of the passengers and cargo that the vehicle is carrying.
