2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo SE

Hyundai UK has announced that the new Veloster Turbo SE will be available on the market starting September 24th at a starting price of £21,995 ($34,800). The model will be offered in a standard White Crysta exterior paint, but an optional Phantom Black (Pearl) and a Matte Grey finish can be ordered for £445 ($704 at the current rates) and £525 ($830 at the current rates), respectively. A tilt and slide Panoramic sunroof is also available for £950 ($1,500).

The new Veloster Turbo SE will be offered with a 1.6-liter T-GDI turbocharged engine that delivers a total of 184 HP and 195 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission, the model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 133 mph.

On the front end, the Veloster gets a new front bumper, radiator grille, and front fog lights, while the rear adds a revised bumper, a new fog lamp design, round twin exhausts, and diffuser. The car sits on a new set of standard 18-inch alloy wheels with chrome inserts. For the interior, Hyundai is offering redesigned leather seats with grey panels, Hyundai’s 7-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, and, of course, "Turbo" logos embossed on the driver’s and passenger’s seats.


I’m expecting for a Hyundai that has automatic transmission. I hope they can offer this one with options on its gearbox.

It’s performing great with the turbocharged engine it is using. The exterior is moderately furnished.

If I were to ask the panoramic sunroof gives a difference among the Hyundai models.

he price is not really that expensive. A car with a top speed of 133 mph is great for that price.

Wow, finally they set a date for the Veloster Turbo SE launching on the market. September 24 will be the busiest day of them.

The exterior paint selection gives cool options for finishing. The 8-seconds sprints is good, but Hyundai should make it faster for it’s a coupe.
