Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA - After gaining on of Kelley Blue Books 10 coolest cars, Hyundai adds a Value addition to the Veloster.

  • 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, and premium audio are just a few of many features wrapped in a modestly priced package that adds even more versatility in 2017
As one of Kelley Blue Book’s “10 Coolest Cars under $18,000” in 2016, a new Value Edition comes to the hippest small car on the market for the 2017 model year. At just $21,350 the Veloster Value Edition with a standard 6-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission delivers $950 in value savings and includes several desirable features.

2017 Hyundai Veloster Value Edition includes:
  • 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/40 R18 tires
  • Panoramic Sunroof
  • Proximity key with push button start
  • 7-inch Navigation system including Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™
  • Automatic climate control
  • Blue Link® Connected Car System
  • Blue Linpeakers, external amp and subwooferk Remote Start
  • Premium Dimension audio system, with 8 s


 “The Value Edition epitomizes our desire to provide consumers more for less,” said Mike Evanoff, Product Planning Manager. “These are amongst the most sought after options in a car, in one convenient value savings package.”

This new trim level bolsters an already solid Veloster line-up which starts at just $18,100.


FIESTY ENGINES, FRIENDLY TRANSMISSION CHOICES
Thrust comes from a 1.6-liter, Gasoline Direct Injection, Dual Overhead Cam, 16-valve, inline-4 engine, but you choose whether or not it also includes a turbocharger. 

The naturally aspirated unit produces a healthy 132 peak horsepower at 6300 rpm and 120 pound-feet of torque at 4850 rpm. Adding the twin-scroll turbo to the stainless-steel, integrated exhaust-manifold increases peak horsepower to a potent 201 at 6000 rpm and torque to 195 pound-feet at just 1750 rpm, and maintains the pull all the way through 4500. 

No matter the engine, choose between a six-speed manual or dual-clutch transmission, six-speed for naturally aspirated motors, turbos get seven speeds.



THREE DOORS AND A HATCH
Sixty-five percent of the Veloster’s structure is made from high-strength steel. This benefits everything from ride to road noise. It also makes an excellent foundation for a sport-tuned suspension. 

For even more control, the Veloster Turbo features brake-based torque vectoring to mitigate understeer and enhance its already impressive turn-on-a-dime nature. With a driver’s door, front and rear passenger doors, and capacious 15.5 cubic-feet of cargo space underneath the hatch, the Veloster offers both utility and excitement in a sharply styled package.



SAFETY
Great safety equipment come standard on every Veloster, including a NHTSA 5-star safety rating. Active safety comes from six airbags(two up front, as well as driver and passenger side and curtain airbags) along with front seatbelt pre-tensioners that hold folks tight rounding out the features. 

Passive safety comes from Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control (TC), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), as well as a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and Daytime Running Lights (DRL). That’s a lot of initials and a lot of ways to avoid an incident from ever occurring.



FOUR ON THE SHOWROOM FLOOR
Whether you choose a well-equipped standard car, opt for the Value Edition, or add forced induction to the mix with either the Veloster Turbo or R-Spec, it doesn’t matter, you receive great value. You chose style, class, and practicality. You chose cool.
