The Hyundai Veloster Turbo 2016 has arrived in the Middle East shifting the Korean manufacturers model portfolio into top gear.  Offering the sportiness of a coupé with the roominess of a sedan, the new edition will offer customer’s Hyundai’s signature driving experience through a high powered engine and a selection of savvy specifications and technological infotainment features.

 

Tom Lee, Vice President and Head of Hyundai Africa and Middle East Regional Headquarters, said: “It is with great delight that we welcome the new Veloster Turbo to our Middle East portfolio. It brings new levels of sportiness to our fleet and represents the latest vehicle to feature our ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design language and is set to make waves across the region.”

 

Under the bonnet the Veloster Turbo houses a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox featuring shiftronic automatic technology for increased power. With a maximum output of 204 horsepower from a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine this new model is set to take pole position on the region’s roads.

To deliver a sportier ride the Turbo features modified front suspension, featuring gas-filled hydraulic monotube shock absorbers while the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) has been tuned for increased steering response. When taking a corner, large front and rear stabilizer bars are in place to reduce body roll and improve handling and control.

 

Additional Hyundai performance features include Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) which enhances vehicle stability and safety and the seven-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters which incorporate the latest technology while delivering smooth and efficient power.

 

The bold design of this new edition features a stealth 3rd door, striking LED headlight accents and raking contour lines which make Veloster Turbo instantly recognisable. Standard features also include standard 18-inch alloy wheels with 10mm-wider fitted tires, a chrome-tipped dual exhaust, sporty bodykit and a special wide-mouthed grille.

 

The Veloster Turbo’s unique 3-door design with glass rear hatch and optional panoramic sunroof gives the interior a spacious feel. As passengers are supported by new sportier front seats they can enjoy being surrounded by a sport-bike-inspired dashboard detailed with intricate Turbo stitching.

 

Once on board passengers can take advantage of advanced in-car technology via Hyundai’s class-leading multimedia 7 inch touchscreen which allows easy access technology at the touch of a button.

 

The Veloster Turbo, as with all Hyundai models has an exceptional level of standard safety features as highlighted by the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system. This is in place so that when a driver accelerates or brakes on a difficult surface and the vehicle wants to pull in one direction VSM detects this condition and sends a signal to the MDPS to apply steering assist to counter this force. VSM reacts the same way during sudden lane changes or fast cornering.

 

This dynamic model puts safety first by featuring six airbags and a state-of-the-art braking package which includes four-wheel disc brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake Assist, which provides maximum force when a panic stop is detected. This system is supported by Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), to automatically adjust the braking force to front and rear axles based on vehicle loading conditions.
