Finally, the real story on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo pricing is here. $22,725 (including the $775 destination fee). A 6-speed automatic is another $1,000.
With 201 horsepower and 38 mpg highway, the Veloster Turbo has the Mini Cooper S and Fiat 500 Abarth beat on paper in those two areas, but faces a significant battle when it comes to outright driving enjoyment. The base Veloster isn’t the most engaging car, and the Mini Cooper S and 500 Abarth seem to have that part of the equation nailed down, as well as having whatever prestige one can get from owning a European car.
We’ll be driving the Veloster Turbo in a couple weeks, and definitive answers will be available as soon as the embargo lifts.
