Hyundai has launched a new, special edition Veloster Street Turbo with a few extra features and one awesome looking colour…..blue.
Only 200 of these dazzling hatches will be available around the country offering $3000 worth of kit for only $1000 extra on the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo +.
The first thing you notice is the new Dazzling Blue Mica paint job with matching blue sports interior, and RAYS Gram Lights 18” multispoke alloy wheels in a semi-gloss black with 225/40R18 tyres.
Also highlighting the exterior is “Street” badging, HID Xenon headlamps and wing mirrors, front grille, front spoiler insert, rear diffuser insert and side skirt inserts all in Phantom Black.
The view is just as appealing from the inside with a blue theme throughout – blue bolsters on the leather trim sports bucket seats, blue front seatbelts and blue front door handles.
As with the ‘ordinary’ Veloster variety, the Veloster Street is fitted with a 1.6 litre turbo engine capable of 150kW and 265Nm.
Behind the Wheel had the privilege of taking the Hyundai Veloster Street for a spin round a track and checking out its new get-up.
The Veloster feels like it belongs out there on the track; it’s nice on the road but it doesn’t really let the Veloster shine.
It displays superb handling, precise steering with plenty of traction gripping the corners with confidence.
There’s power when you need it and not mention the rather befitting exhaust note.
Hyundai plans to have one vehicle available at each dealership but numbers are limited.
The manual Veloster Street Turbo is priced from $34,990 or $37,490 for the auto with dual-clutch transmission.
