I spent 3 days with a Veloster Turbo and I was pleasantly surprised with this car. After driving a non-turbo with DCT, this Veloster Turbo would be the car you'd like if you want a bit more spring in your step.
Things to remember:
This car is a SPORTY car, not a sports car. With that being said, if you think you're going to race Speed3's or Focus ST's, you will be disappointed. It was not designed for that, and quite frankly, I didn't mind.
YOU WILL BE NOTICED in this car. I had the matte grey Veloster Turbo, and if you don't want people staring and complimenting you, then don't purchase. This car is very unique, (which I enjoyed).
The matte paint was a $1000 premium, so if you can live without it, you can shave 1k off a relatively low price. This car has a lot of features that not even my $50k daily driver car has. If you are looking for value, this is the car for you.
I drove the A/T which is a true automatic and not a DCT like the base Veloster. The A/T provided a very nice pep to the car, as it did not feel sluggish in the least bit. If you want the true sports car feel, then add the extra pedal.
I hauled friends, groceries and the like, and this car has an extreme amount of truck space that you would never guess. 3rd door has a level of asymmetry that can't be matched. While I wouldn't suggest putting NBA players in the back, it will do if you have to be the designated people mover.
If you are looking for a car that is sporty, fuel efficient, unique, then you have found it in the Veloster Turbo.
