Although it is a little bit late, we keep reviewing the 2017 Hyundai Veloster in order to fill your curiosity. Basically, the Hyundai Veloster comes with sophisticated styling and design. However, many reviewers rated the car from average to low ratings. Let’s check the reasons below.
Many car enthusiasts love that the 2017 Hyundai Veloster has a cohesive design as a pure sports car. In addition, R-Spec leads us to Turbo’s potential performance. In addition, the Blue Link comes as standard in the lineup.
However, the people hate the engine performance because it can be so slow. Moreover, the driving can be wavy for some reasons.
The 2017 Hyundai Veloster combines the four-door design in a hatchback body. This is very unusual for a four-door car seriously. Hyundai always surprises us every day with its daily experiments, including this new Volester. A mashup model of hatchback and four-door design really relaxes our eyes. You can feel a coupe but also hatchback at the same time. This also happens inside the Volester. The materials are perfect with overwhelming shapes. Hyundai also takes some engine options from the Accent and Elantra.
Under the Hood
The first engine of new Volester is a 1.6 L inline-4 engine. It delivers 138 horsepower with both manual and automatic transmissions. Meanwhile, the Volester Turbo boasts engine with twin-scroll turbocharging. It does tune up 201 horsepower with 6-speed manual or 7-speed paddle-shifted dual-clutch engine. The performance is sluggish by the way. It just reaches 0-60 mph in seven seconds. For the non-turbo Volester is able to clock 31 mpg.
We have to say that the 2017 Hyundai Veloster is really successful in term of exterior. The manufacturers can’t always win to combine some unique styling in their car. This unlucky thing doesn’t happen in Hyundai. You can see other competitors like Murano, CrossCabriolet and many more. They are all failed to impress the car enthusiasts. However, the Volester really enhances our eyes to see other parts of the body design. Thanks to the weird door placement on the back because it doesn’t make the car old. Instead, it is the symbol of modern four-door coupe.
You can see the engine options offered by Hyundai to the new Volester above. But, it doesn’t impress us so much. Seven seconds to reach 60mph aren’t a good achievement for Hyundai. It does succeed our eyes, but not our heart. Moreover, it loans the engine from the Accent and Elantra.
This is the worse part that we can review from the 2017 Hyundai Veloster. You can see that there is an additional door on the back. However, it doesn’t provide enough space inside. Yeah, it can be roomier than other cars in the same class. But still, it isn’t enough as a hatchback. The door does give us easier way to bring our stuff, but it doesn’t give better comfort for the back seat passengers. In addition, the front passenger may have better head and leg room, but the back seat passengers suffer with the smaller head and leg because of its narrowing design.
