Top Gear review of the Hyundai Veloster Turbo

 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

When the Hyundai Veloster was new, all everyone talked about was the doors. The strange and imaginative arrangement - two on the kerb side, one on the road side - raised the profile of both the Veloster and Hyundai as a whole. It also had the useful side effect of distracting attention from the car's relatively humdrum mechanical spec.

But now the Veloster comes with a turbo. So, however handy they might be for dropping the kids off at school, let's put the doors aside and look at it as budget sports coupe. The addition of a quick-responding twin-scroll blower to the direct-injection engine takes the power up to 186bhp and the torque to 195lb ft. To go with it, the wheels are up to 18-inchers, and the suspension is firmed, the steering re-geared and re-weighted, and brakes made more stout. What you'd expect.
