2017 hyundai veloster wins top award

Looking for a cool car that won’t hurt your bottom line? If so, then look no further than the 2017 Hyundai Veloster, which is on sale now at Reliable Hyundai. The two-door hatchback was recently included in Kelley Blue Book’s annual “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000” list. The distinction recognizes dynamic vehicles that continue to be affordable to a wide range of buyers.

“Vehicles at this price point are often associated with less styling or performance, but the Veloster delivers a unique and youthful design with fun-to-drive characteristics,” said Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager, product planning, Hyundai Motor America.

Plenty of Top-Notch Amenities

The new Veloster comes well-equipped in all grades, which include base, Value Edition, Turbo R Spec and Turbo. Even the entry-level base model comes with an array of high-end amenities, as noted by several 2017 Hyundai Veloster reviews. They include sporty 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and a six-speaker audio system that delivers “concert-like” sound quality.

Stepping up to the Value Edition adds a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a premium eight-speaker sound system and navigation. Heated seats with plush leather upholstery can be had on the top-ranging Turbo.

Two Excellent Engine Options

The new Veloster can be had with one of two different engines. First, there’s a 132-horsepower 1.-6-liter four-cylinder that generates up to 120 pound-feet of torque; it comes standard on base and Value Edition trims. More power can be had with the 1.6-liter turbo that delivers 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, which can be found on Turbo R Spec and Turbo models. Power is pushed to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.

A hot hatchback that will help you grow your sporty style, the new Veloster is a top contender in the ultra-competitive two-door vehicle segment. Come test drive one today at Reliable Hyundai!
