Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo

Hyundai carmaker through its Australian branch has revealed its Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo. The model has a starting price established at AUD $31.990 for the versions equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission and at AUD $33.990 for the ones equipped with the 6-speed automatic unit. The hot hatchback is powered by a 1.6-liter Gramma, 4-cylinder, twin-scroll turbocharged T-GDI engine capable of developing 210 horsepower and 265 Nm of torque. In comparison with the standard Veloster and the Veloster +, this new SR Turbo provides 46% more peak power and 60% more maximum torque thanks to the new engine.

In terms of fuel consumption, the variant quipped with the manual transmission will consume 6.8 liters / 100 km and the ones equipped with the automatic one, 7.6 liter / 100 km. The ones concerned about pollution should know that the CO2 emission level reaches 163 g/km when it comes to the units that send the power to the wheels through the manual transmission and reaches 181 g/km when we talk about the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo equipped with the automatic transmission. The model has a tuned suspension and steering and it transfers the output to the road through 18-inch alloy wheels covered in 215/40 R18 tires.

In terms of equipment, the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo comes as standard with a 7-inch LCD touch screen display, Vehicle Stability Management with Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System and for extra safety, it is equipped with six airbags. This list of elements that improve the ride does not end here. The new model available for the Australian customers also features a rearview camera, push button start with proximity start key, daytime running lights and last, but not least, an automatic climate control air conditioning system.
