When you have the opportunity to take a first look at the 2016 Hyundai Veloster, it might probably resemble a muscle car but it’s not!
The surprise package comes from Hyundai at the most unexpected time of the year. However, such sporty and affordable cars are a gem of the find which could get easily lost if you don’t notice them. The model has been around for almost five years now, with the first one that got launched in the 2011. The body of the car is strongly based on the Hyundai Accent and has the same turbocharged engine, but varies in terms of external design.
In the 2016 Hyundai Veloster, the car manufacturer offers a brand new Rally Edition. As with many other editions, this is going to be one of the most powerful Velosters on road, because the manufacturer has integrated some new parts to make it amazingly fast. With a performance boost, the pricing gets a slight bump, but it is still affordable when compared to many other vehicles in the same class.
On the inside, the car is powered by a 1.6 liter four cylinder engine which uses direct injection technology. It is capable of delivering 138 horsepower, enough for most everyday commuters and users who don’t demand much from their vehicles. There is a force fed version of the car, also known as the Rally Edition. It delivers 201 horsepower and has 195 lb feet of torque. The car uses a six speed manual transmission system, but if you are going to expect more power from it than the Golf GTI from Volkswagen, you might be disappointed.
However, for everyone else, the features, performance and the price ratio make it an ideal combination. The 2016 Hyundai Veloster is spacious in design with considerable legroom and headroom for the passengers. If you are planning to go for it, the Rally Edition priced at a moderate $27,199 excluding delivery charges is the best option. It not only provides more power and performance for the model, but also has better handling due to the boosted engine system integrated into it.
Hyundai has confirmed that they will be selling limited editions of the Rally car in Canada, among other regions. It is proposed to be a special car that select owners have, rather than a conventional model found all over the city. The coupe does its job which is what buyers expect from any purchase they make.
