How To Win a Hyundai Veloster Turbo
Hyundai is sponsoring a contest called, "Show Your Loyalty: Hyundai Veloster Turbo Sweepstakes." Here's the official entry website for you to start on your way to winning one.
But before we start down that road, lets take a moment to look at the Hyundai Veloster Turbo. In my humble opinion, it's a blast to drive. With only three doors, the compact Veloster Turbo just eats up twisty roads and deports itself well on straightaways thanks to a 201-horsepower, 195-lb. ft. of torque, 1.6-liter, four cylinder turbo engine.
TorqueNews.com managing editor Patrick Rall had this to say in his Veloster Turbo review, "From a stop, the Veloster Turbo pulls hard through the gears with surprisingly little wheel spin or torque steer, allowing this hot hatch to make good use of the power.
"Many compacts that pack power in this range can be hard to launch but even with the quick spool time and the relatively “instant on” power band, the Veloster Turbo doesn’t blow away the front tires like some of the competitors. This is a car that you can launch hard and it will come off the line just as hard with any wheel spin being minimal before the tires track and rocket you up through the revs."
Plus, it's not a horribly expensive car for all of its performance (and it can seat five in a pinch – literally a pinch if their anybody above a 28-inch waist). The Veloster Turbo starts at $22,895 for the six-speed manual model.
