Interested buyers for Hyundai’s Veloster Turbo SE could avail of the turbocharged version of the Veloster 1+2 door coupe beginning September 24, 2012. Having a starting price of £21,995, the Veloster Turbo SE is Hyundai’s first vehicle to feature its 1.6-litre T-GDI engine with a high-compression, twin-scroll turbocharger. 

Hyundai tweaked Veloster Turbo SE’s engine to suit European driving tastes and improve driving experience by increasing its power output and low end torque. The engine provides 186PS (184bhp) of output and 195lb ft (265Nm) of torque, which is transmitted to the wheels via a standard six-speed manual gearbox with wider gear ratios. This power allows the Veloster Turbo SE to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 8.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 133 mph. Its maximum torque is between 1,500rpm and 4,500rpm.

The Veloster Turbo SE provides a more engaging and responsive drive. The Veloster Turbo SE also boasts of improved body control, thanks to firmer dampers. The exterior of the Veloster Turbo SE keeps the standard car’s unique 1+2 door layout, but boasts of visual enhancements -- front bumper, radiator grille and front fog lights -- to give it a sportier look. The rear of the Veloster Turbo SE is also endowed with a revised bumper, which includes a new fog lamp design with round twin exhausts and diffuser.

The vehicle is also fitted with a longer and wider rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light, as well as a red “Turbo” nameplate on the bottom right of the bootlid. The Veloster Turbo SE rides on 18-inch alloy wheels featuring new designs with chrome inserts. All these features are complemented by a moulded side sill, which gives the Veloster Turbo SE a low and sporty stance. 

A buyer could choose from three colour options: White Crystal (Solid) as standard, Phantom Black (Pearl) and Matt Grey finish. To get the Pearl and Matt Grey finishes, a buyer has to dish out an additional £445 and £525 respectively.  A buyer could have tilt-and-slide Panoramic sunroof fitted for just £950.
