Great vehicle for those that love speed and tech

2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

The turbo edition gives great control and speed in different situations. You can choose between the eco mode for great gas mileage or performance mode for better speed. This tends get between 25-35 mpg depending on what mode it is in. The seats are very comfortable and easily adjusted to fit your space requirements. They are also heated in this edition, which is great for the cold winters. (No cooling option though for summer). If you have the app (and pay the monthly/yearly fee) you can use several other features like remote start. It features Bluetooth audio for wireless playing, or you can hook your phone up through usb. You also have the standard radio and XM radio if you want that. The touchscreen can be a little buggy and not always respond. It also purposefully keeps you from using it while the vehicle is in drive, which can be annoying. The vehicle has only three doors, but still has plenty of space for four people. It's always a little confusing for passengers who haven't been in it before, wondering where the back door is. There's decent trunk space in the back as well. A downside is how small the rear window is. It can be difficult to see out of it, but this can be countered by the backup cam that displays on the screen when in reverse. Otherwise, you will be relying a lot on the side mirrors. The rear view mirror is ok, but doesn't give you a lot to look at.

Sporty on the outside, spacious on the inside.

2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

This car is incredibly spacious inside and the third door is an amazing feature. The moonroof is a great addition and makes the car feel even bigger. The car has great visibility and even better gas mileage. The back seats all fold down for more storage, and it does hold a lot. I moved from ca to AZ with this car and was able to fit all of my personal belongings with room to spare. This car will turn on a dime and fit into any parking spot. The steering is tight and you feel like you have a lot of control over the car. The radio that comes stock with the car is touch screen and there is a game you can play to ensure you drive eco friendly. My only issue is that I wish it accelerated faster. When you step on the gas you can feel the car wait a beat before accelerating.

A gem of a vehicle perfect for a single-family home

2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

My Hyundai Veloster is truly a charm. It is a sport-style vehicle that runs smoothly and efficiently. It was purchased in 2017 and has not given me a single functional issue since the date of purchase. The car is comfortable and the fact that it was one of the only 3-door models made in 2016 makes it even more special. The seats are very adjustable, especially the driver's seat. The audio is wonderful and the Bluetooth connection never lets me down. The windshield wipers are fantastic, and having one additional one for the rear windshield is an added bonus. The heat/cooling system is phenomenal. I have no complaints about this vehicle and look forward to using it for as long as possible.
