The Hyundai Veloster now comes in a new Value edition for the U.S. market. The new Hyundai Veloster Value edition, voted the coolest cars under USD18,000, comes with a standard 6-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission and includes several desirable features.

The new Veloster Value ediition is all about Hyundai’s desire to provide customers more for less. Accordingly, Hyundai revealed that the add-ons are amongst the most sought after options in a car, offered in one convenient value savings package. The Veloster is available in standard, Turbo and R-Spec options.

Exterior-wise, the value-for-money Veloster comes with a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch alloy wheels, fitted with 225/40 R18 tyres. These additions give an impression of a more dynamic hatchback.

On the inside, the Veloster comes with a host of new features such as proximity key with push button start, 7-inch Navigation system with Android Auto and CarPlay, automatic climate control, Blue Link Connected Car System, Blue Link Remote Start, and Premium Dimension audio system, with 8 speakers, external amp and subwoofer.

At just USD21,350 the Veloster Value edition with a standard 6-speed EcoShif Dual Clutch Transmission delivers ISD950 in value savings and includes several desirable features. This new trim level bolsters an already solid Veloster line-up which starts at just USD18,100.

Thrust comes from a 1.6-liter, Gasoline Direct Injection, Dual Overhead Cam, 16-valve, inline-4 engine, but you choose whether or not it also includes a turbocharger. The naturally aspirated unit produces a healthy 132 peak horsepower at 6300 rpm and 162 Nm (120 pound-feet) of torque at 4850 rpm. Adding the twin-scroll turbo to the stainless-steel, integrated exhaust-manifold increases peak horsepower to a potent 201 at 6000 rpm and torque to 264 Nm (195 pound-feet) at just 1750 rpm, and maintains the pull all the way through 4500. No matter the engine, choose between a six-speed manual or dual-clutch transmission, six-speed for naturally aspirated motors, turbos get seven speeds.

Sixty-five percent of the Veloster’s structure is made from high-strength steel. This benefits everything from ride to road noise. It also makes an excellent foundation for a sport-tuned suspension. For even more control, the Veloster Turbo features brake-based torque vectoring to mitigate understeer and enhance its already impressive turn-on-a-dime nature. With a driver’s door, front and rear passenger doors, and capacious 15.5 cubic-feet of cargo space underneath the hatch, the Veloster offers both utility and excitement in a sharply styled package.

Ample safety equipment come standard on every Veloster, including a NHTSA 5-star safety rating. Active safety comes from six airbags(two up front, as well as driver and passenger side and curtain airbags) along with front seatbelt pre-tensioners that hold folks tight rounding out the features. More safety features comes from Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control (TC), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), as well as a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
