Hyundai turned itself right into a profitable model by constructing smart, dependable automobiles and crossovers that match up properly with the competitors. The place rival carmakers have a product, Hyundai has a really comparable various. Making a sale by imitating the class leaders is usually a profitable technique.

After which you might have the 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo – a car that basically has no comparable rival. No different automaker gives an asymmetrical three-door, sloped-rear-mild hatchback. Regardless of how useful it’s or how nicely it drives, all conversations about the Veloster begin with its funky format.

In fact, what differentiates the Veloster from a extra conventional hatchback are, for me, the huge drawbacks. The asymmetrical door association led to a pair of sisters climbing over each other to exit by way of the single rear door, and that sloping roof cuts down on rear headroom. Each time I drove over a velocity bump, my 5 foot six eldest bashed her cranium on the headliner.

A few of that headroom deficit might lie at the ft of the panoramic sunroof. The vast expanse of glass is good, ought to one need a bit extra airflow, nevertheless it cuts into the head area. Additional, I used to be irritated by a scarcity of physique rigidity seemingly amplified by the gaping glass gap, as I famous an excellent variety of squeaks, creaks, and rattles above my head, particularly when driving spiritedly.

That’s a disgrace, as a result of the 201 horsepower 1.6 liter turbocharged 4 virtually begs you to go play. Energy supply is superb, with minimal turbo lag – the full complement of 195 pound/ft of torque is obtainable at 1,500 rpm. The seven-velocity twin clutch transmission works nicely sufficient, although downshifts might be considerably sluggish when making an attempt to hustle on that abandoned twisty street down by the river.

I urge you, nevertheless. When you do take the plunge on a Veloster of your personal, make it a guide. Whereas not Miata-good, the Hyundai six-velocity guide pairs completely with this engine, making an excellent car much more pleasant.

Dealing with from the brief-wheelbase Veloster is great. Whereas by no means fairly straying into the oversteer class, the multi-hyperlink rear suspension (shared with the Elantra GT Sport I so adored final yr) is glad to rotate when requested. My solely word is an unusually robust self-centering motion to the steering. It typically feels as if the steering wheel is pulling you again to straight with extra gusto than in most automobiles. My guess is the Veloster is designed to be aligned with extra caster than the comparable Elantra, to assist stability on interstate drives.

Whereas my rear seat passengers complained about bopping their noggins, they have been in any other case snug, and welcomed the handy middle-mounted cupholders. That plastic console does imply this can be a car restricted to 4 passengers, quite than 5.

I really like that Hyundai provides one thing extra fascinating than a typical black or charcoal interior – the off-white leather-based seems fantastic and brightens up the whole cabin. I’d be cautious of how lengthy it stays wanting good, in fact. The asymmetry on the exterior continues inside, with in another way coloured sides of the dashboard and door panels. It’s a type of issues that strikes you at first, however shortly fades into the background after a number of days of dwelling with the car.

Have been I to signal a observe on a Veloster Turbo – and never the Veloster N, which is a completely totally different monster – I’d play proper into my thrifty nature and specify the Turbo R-Spec. I’d lose the sunroof, heated seats, rain sensing wipers, leather-based, navigation, lively cruise management, energy lumbar help, and wi-fi cell charging, however I’d save almost six thousand dollars. I’d miss the lively cruise and wi-fi charger, however I’d have a car that matches me so a lot better. And it’s solely out there with the six-velocity guide.2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo screenshot

Make mine Sundown Orange.

Actually, although, the Veloster Turbo shouldn’t be the proper match for my household or my way of life. I want a bit extra headroom and cargo area – I’m hauling youngsters in all places all the time, it appears. However for those who can reside with the baked-in quirks – actually, in case you love these quirks just because they’re the essence of Veloster – than this funky heat hatch is a superb selection.
