Hyundai Veloster Turbo SE Priced At £21,995


Hyundai has announced that the Veloster Turbo SE will be available from September 24 priced at £21,995. The Veloster Turbo SE is powered by a 184bhp 1.6-litre T-GDI engine and mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission featuring wider gear ratios.

Acceleration from 0-62mph comes in 8.4sec and top speed is 133mph.

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “The Veloster has quickly established itself as a fun car and a unique proposition. Now the the Veloster Turbo SE brings an extra helping of dynamism, excitement and emotional appeal to our refreshed model line-up. Its overall package is genuinely strong against other competitors such as the VW Scirocco 1.4TSI and the Astra GTC 1.6i 16v VVT Turbo”.

The Veloster Turbo SE is the first vehicle to feature Hyundai’s 1.6-litre T-GDI engine with a high-compression, twin-scroll turbocharger. To best suit European driving tastes and enhance driver enjoyment, power output has been boosted and low end torque increased.

Veloster Turbo SE features a new front bumper, radiator grille, side sills and front fog lights. At the rear you can see a revised bumper, which includes a new fog lamp design plus round twin exhausts and diffuser. There is also a longer and wider rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light, as well as a red “Turbo” nameplate on the bottom right of the bootlid.

All this rides on new 18-inch alloy wheel designs with chrome inserts.
