Turbo R Spec. Battery had dead cell and once replaced reliable. Power builds as turbo spools up, slight turbo lag. Low end torque makes for easy use of manual transmission. Fuel economy disappointing @ 25 mpg avg overall. Shifter is the best feature of the car, short precise throws, a real pleasure. No turbo ID on exterior so not a cop magnet. Relaxed @ >80+ mph. Car is fast, not quick. Factory incentives and dealer discounts make it an incredible bargain right now (January 2017).

All the new bells and whistles when it comes to updated technology! It does have the Hyundia Blue Link system to start and warm your car from your cell phone but if you buy manual transmission, it will not start the car. Makes sense since the clutch has to be depressed to start. This car accelerates so fast you you want realize the speed at times! The Tech package gives you leather seats and sunroof which is so simple to use! I look forward to driving each day!

Veloster an "odd duck," in a good way

I have named my new Veloster "Daffy" because it is an "odd duck" of a car. I mean that positively, though. It is a 3 door, 4 passenger sports car, which is a bit quirky. It has a 1.6 litre engine, a bit more than a lawnmower but with decent pep, largely due to its turbo boost. Gas mileage so far (a little over 500 miles) has been what I expected - 26 mpg city, 35 mpg hwy (one long trip). Comfort is okay, though it is a bit awkward to get in and out of the back seat from the driver's side. Entrance and exit to and from the driver's seat is somewhat tight for this 73 year old driver. So far I am pleased with the purchase. time will tell how reliable it is.
