High-Performance Veloster Turbo Arrives In New Zealand

Hyundai Motors New Zealand has announced the arrival of its all-new Veloster Turbo in showrooms.

Powered by the all-new 1.6-litre turbo engine, the Veloster Turbo delivers 262Nm of torque, an increase of 60 per cent, with maximum power increasing nearly 50 per cent to 150kW.

The new model has the option of a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

Other enhancements include 300mm ventilated front disc brakes, 20mm larger than on naturally aspirated models, a recalibrated suspension package, a quicker rack (2.78 turns lock to lock) and revised motor-driven power steering.

Hyundai General Manager Andy Sinclair says all the extra power brings braun to beauty, which New Zealanders will love.

To set it apart, the Veloster Turbo has an aggressive new front grille, round front fog lamps, 18” alloy wheels with chrome inserts, side skirts, a rear diffuser, rear spoiler and twin circular exhaust outlets.

Standard features include sports bucket seats fitted with a blend of leather and leatherette, a 7” LCD touch screen, reversing camera and a panoramic glass sunroof.

The Veloster Turbo is available in six colours, including a matte finish called Young Gun, a pearl-effect Phantom Black, Veloster Red, Battleship Grey and Storm Trooper White.

Both the Veloster 6-speed manual or automatic models are priced at $49,990 and available for test drives from one of Hyundai’s 23 dealerships nationwide.
