      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.

      A car that looks and feels great to drive!

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      This car is really nice. It has a sporty look and feel but yet can be used to move items or just hoping for a joy ride. It has great gas mileage and the radio and CD player has a great sound. The Veloster is a comfortable ride. It drives really smooth. The Veloster is a really airtight CST. So if it is cold outside and you have the heater on, it does not take long to get warm and stay warm.. The same goes for the a/c if it is hot outside. Bottom line, this is a great car. It is fun to drive and it looks and feels great!

      Great mileage for long commutes

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      I love the mileage I get on my car. It's exterior is sleek and I love the curves to it. I do regret not having bought the turbo version as it lacks torque even though my insurance considers it to be a sports vehicle. As fun as a car as it looks, it just doesn't have any pep when I step on the gas pedal. The trunk also is a bit smaller than I prefer. So far I've put 70k and not one mechanical problem! Super comfortable for local day trips but would definitely prefer taking my Sonata for the longer drives.

      2016 Hyundai three door hatch.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      Definite upgrade for me. This is my first new car (all others were hand down 100,000 plus miles), and so far I have 64,000 miles on it and still going strong. The only two things I have had to replace is a mediocre battery, original from the dealership, and an emissions sensor (apparently chewed plug via squirrel this winter). The sport mode and paddle shifters can be fun to drive with at times when you want to shift gears like a manual without having to worry with a clutch pedal.

      - Lauren K

      Height of steering column.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      This car is very comfortable as I am short and it has a steering column that tilts and also pushes in and out so I can get it to my level. The performance has never been a problem and I love how it handles especially in the winter time on icy roads. The miles per gallon are good as well, but the price of gas still keeps going up. My car is yellow and it gets a lot of attention.

      - Dale G

      Love my car. I will always buy this car when I need to get another one.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      This car drives well. It is easy to steer and go around corners. It has bucket seats which are really comfortable. It has a hatchback and 3 passenger doors. Since I live in Tennessee and root for the Vols my car is colored orange. I would recommend this car to any who like to drive a sports car. Easy to drive and can see out every window.

      - Debbie C

      Practical and reliable car

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      The Veloster is more wide on the back than the front so when I turn I always hit the curve side. I had to get used to make a wider turn. It has a lot of space in the truck And also you can lower the seat for extra room. It is a perfect vehicle for an student, single or recent married couple. I would not recommend for a family with children

      - Elsie C

      The Veloster - 2016- bad decision.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      The car is very sporty looking, but it has not get up and go. It stalls out if you need to cross a lane quickly, I have had multiple issues, gas tank, engine light. It was a dream car turned nightmare. Very poor gas mileage. The low profile tires lasted 6 months. I have had to replace tires 3 times in three years. I love the sunroof.

      - Jennifer S

      Awesome on gas and love the look great car for getting around town!

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      This car has been completely reliable since I got it back in 2016. I love how compact it is and comfortable. Truly great on gas and love how sporty it looks. Only downfall is that it's truly not a family car for obvious reasons. I recently had a baby and doesn't have all the room I would love but we still make it work.

      - Stephanie C

      Good car for the price, extremely reliable.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      It does not have any performance problems, is reliable, and comfortable. It has a good warranty, decent stereo for a base model, and the traction control is great for winter driving. For performance, it isn't as get up and go as say the turbo models, but it looks just as good as the other Veloster models.

      - Chris A

      Can drive for hundreds of miles on one tank of gas.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      The car runs very well, gas mileage is phenomenal. There's an alert if your tire pressure gets too low. It is way more spacious than you would expect. It holds a lot of gas but the mileage is so good that it barely uses any in my day to day driving. I haven't had any issues with the car so far.

      - Cassandra B

      This car is a good buy. I would definitely purchase again

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      The air conditioning is not blowing. I have Only had the vehicle for a year. It has Great gas mileage. Great trunk space. The rear camera is awesome. Bluetooth capability is cool. Doesn't have OnStar. Rides very smooth. Sits low. Get leather seats, it's diffi to clean the cloth

      - Ashley S

      Quick and efficient, but a few issues.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      Comfortable seats, easy ride, good sound, heat and air work well, pretty good with gas. But I did have a few problems with the backup camera/radio combo that was a little frustrating, but not too terrible. The car also does not come with a spare, which does not seem practical.

      Honda and Hyundai reviews

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      My Honda had a horrible first owner, so it's s fixer upper The Hyundai Veloster is fast and great on gas. It's gorgeous to look at too, beautiful design like a sports car. The one negative is the blind spot on the right rear side, which can make switching lanes a bit tricky.

      - Colleen B

      I would not hesitate to buy another Veloster!

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      My car handles very well on the road, even in bad weather. It is great for road trips! It gets excellent gas mileage. It has great features like traction control, which is great in the snow. The inside is very roomy for a compact car and the outside is very sporty looking.

      - Rebecca W

      Sporty looking commuter car.

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      2016 base model does not have a lot of power but the 40 miles per gallon is the reason I bought this car. The front seats are not that comfortable for larger people so long drives are not that comfortable but for a commuter car under 14, 000 dollars it's a great option.

      - Larry M

      Affordable sport car in the market

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      It has engine with not to much power and it just has 3 doors, kind of little for families and to low! But it is a economic car, comfortable, a lot of extras, sport car with a great design in the interior and the exterior. Perfect for couples and young people mostly.

      - Jose S


      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      Comfort, but only (3) three doors, its small so it does not need so much gas, which is good because it makes it economic, it has a nice color and it would be great if the car had four (4) doors that way you could save more comfortable your stuff in the back side

      - mARIA R

      The innovative three door design is both sleek and functional!

      2016 Hyundai Veloster Base

      I love the gas mileage that I receive in this car! For a smaller car I never have any issues with space. It's a car that is always durable and reliable. It's comfortable and a car that I would recommend to anyone. It consistently takes me to where I need to go!
