2017 Hyundai Veloster Release Date & Price
Meanwhile as Hyundai plans when its unusual three-door hatchback will go for sale, rumors within the confines of the industry allege its release will most likely take place sometime in the fall of 2017. The base model’s price should be expected at around the current model’s MSRP of $18,000 – a reasonable price indeed especially considering the features available.
Release Date: the fall of 2017
Anyone smitten by a decently dimensioned car with great fuel economy ratings, and great value for the money should probably shop within the compact hatchback market. True, the number of cars offered here is dizzying, however, what makes the 2017 Hyundai Veloster a standout is its combination of all the aforementioned features plus a reasonable price. Again, its distinctive styling and decent functionality are a plus.
As can be seen, the 2017 Hyundai Veloster has lots to offer. How’s life aboard? You ask. Once you pass through the third door that is located on the passenger side and which offers easier ingress or you sit on the driver’s seat behind the wheel, you’ll definitely notice the value proposition we’ve been mentioning here. Standard features are awash inside and some of which are typically optional on other vehicles in this class.
Under the hood of the 2017 Hyundai Veloster are two engines. The four-cylinder 1.6L engine comes under the hood of the base model and is credited for offering 132 horsepower and 120 lbs. ft. of torque. Springing for the 2017 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Rally Edition, and the Turbo Spec gets you a potent 201 horsepower – generating 1.6L four-cylinder engine that comes hitched to a six-speed manual transmission system.
There’re some gripes, though, that should probably get you thinking in the meantime as you decide whether you’d like a test drive or not. The bae engine is rather painstakingly slow. There’s a flurry of impacts into the cabin particularly in the sportier states of tune while cruising on rough surfaces, and the handling isn’t that inspiring.
But while the Hyundai Veloster 2017 meets the basic requirements of a compact hatchback, the segment isn’t without alternatives – better or equaling for that matter. Some of these include the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Mazda 3, and Ford Fiesta.
