2014 Hyundai Veloster Exterior

2014 Hyundai Veloster Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Unique three-door design
  • Turbo models add torque vectoring
  • New sport-focused Turbo R-Spec trim
One of the most unique cars in design and appearance on the road today, the sporty 2014 Hyundai Veloster offers a fun driving experience along with great value and excellent fuel economy.

For 2014, the Veloster adds a new trim level, the Turbo R-Spec, joining the Turbo which debuted last year. Think of the Turbo R-Spec as a stripped down version of the Turbo; it subtracts some of the standard features on the Turbo like heated leather seats and push-button start, for a more focused approach. R-Spec models do add a sport suspension, tightened steering, and a B&M short-shifter for the six-speed manual (the only offered transmission on the R-Spec).

Under the hood, the Veloster offers two engines. The first one is found in base models, a 138-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder shared with the Accent. It is mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The more intriguing option is found in Turbo and Turbo R-Spec models, a 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder making 195 pounds-feet of torque, with the same transmission options. Fuel economy varies between non-turbo and turbo models. With the base engine, expect 27-28/37 mpg city/highway, while Turbo models follow behind that with 24 city mpg, and 31 or 35 mpg on the highway (higher number with the manual transmission).

The four-seat Veloster is most noted for its three-door setup, which has two normally operated doors in front, and a rear suicide door on the passenger’s side for easier entry/exit for backseat occupants. A sharply angled dashboard houses a seven-inch touchscreen display that controls the audio system. Standard features include Bluetooth connectivity, Blue Link telematics, USB/iPod port, power windows and locks, and Pandora internet radio streaming through a supported smart phone. Push-button start, a navigation system, and leather upholstery are optional. Turbo models also get unique stitching and embroidered “Turbo” logos in the seats, as well as heated front seats and a premium stereo.

Newly standard for 2014 is a backup camera, which joins six airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system on every Veloster model.
