2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo A/T Review

Boasting an athletic yet efficient 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-4, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo adds an additional 63 horsepower and 72 lb-ft, shaving its 0-60 time down to a quick 6.3 seconds. The turbo is also updated with a more aggressive design, including a rear spoiler and dual exhaust. Our blue tester came tricked out with the Ultimate Package, which adds a panoramic sunroof, backup warning sensors and a navigation system with rearview camera.

Warranty/Service: 5-year/60,000 mile new vehicle warranty; 10-year/100,000 powertrain warranty; 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-preforation warranty; 5-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance
