The base spec Veloster comes with the less-powerful 2.0-litre petrol engine and six-speed manual gearbox, with the six-speed auto costing $2300 extra. It also has cloth-trimmed sports seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen and six-speaker audio system.
Spending more on the Veloster Turbo brings the much more powerful turbocharged and and dual-clutch gearbox if you opt for an auto. In addition, it has bigger front brake discs, more effective headlights, very long-lasting LED taillights, and cloth/leather appointed seats. And it rides more firmly, on suspension that has been tuned for sportier driving.
The infotainment system gains a bigger 8.0-inch screen, satellite navigation, digital radio (DAB+) and eight-speaker Infinity premium audio system.
You also gain more Hyundai SmartSense features including higher-speed autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist protection, high-beam assist, rear-cross traffic warning. The duel-clutch auto version also has adaptive cruise control.
Other extras include paddle shifters on the steering wheel for the dual-clutch auto versions, digital performance gauges, auto-folding door mirrors, auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
The Turbo also brings you sporty visual touches that include a body kit, different wheels, and interior highlights and contrasts.
The most expensive Veloster, the Turbo Premium adds rain-sensing windscreen wipers, leather-appointed seats, heated and ventilate front seats, wireless phone charger, head-up display that shows your speed and other driving information in the windscreen, and electric sunroof.
