2016 Hyundai Veloster will keep the reputation from the previous model year that has been designed as best sporty car. It is no wonder that this car is the strong rivals for other cars in the same segment. There is a big expectation that the company gives more changes for 2016 Veloster. This new generation goes with sporty grille with redesigned bumper and revised headlight. The rear is changed with new tail lights graphic. Inside the cabin, some tweaks are added for the interior and also the upgraded infotainment system.
We should admit that 2016 Hyundai Veloster is still unclear for all changes because the company needs to give better improvement through the turbocharged 1.6 model for better performance than before. This engine produces 201hp that is very possible to be updated. It is also expected that the suspension will be tuned and the R-spec will be upgraded for high spring rates. It has more rigid transmission especially for the torque vectoring system.
It has been reported that the 2016 Hyundai Veloster was spotted to do its driving test but it was under the camouflage so there will be some small details are explained from the spy shots. About the power plant, it has much better performance than before while the bodywork will be improved because the new design will be a bit close to the top sport cars. With the new grille, the car has similar look on Genesis to give tougher design than the predecessor. For the headlights, they are small but of course they are redesigned.
2016 Hyundai Veloster Engine
We have heard that the company will give a more powerful engine but it is still not clear yet whether the company will boost the old engine or give a new engine. At this time, there are a lot of people want to see the improved old engine instead of the new one. It means that the current GDI engine 1.6 liter could be boosted to generate a higher level of output for 2016 Hyundai Veloster. At this time, the car could generate 195 lb-ft of torque and it has 201 horsepower but if the company considers boosting and modifying the engine, it means that the car will have the most powerful engine but the company should keep the dual clutch transmission and the six-speed EcoShift. The current model has the fuel economy for about 26/35mpg city/highway but it is possible to be improved with the modified engine.
2016 Hyundai Veloster Price and Release
We only could expect that in the first month of 2015, we could see its arrival with the same price tag as the current model. The base price should go for $17,800 but for equipped models it may goes for $5,000 or $6,000 higher from the base 2016 Hyundai Veloster.
