Hyundai Australia has announced the pricing of the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo in the lead up to its Australian media launch next week.
The Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo will be available in one fully loaded specification level that is priced at $31,990 for the six-speed manual and $33,990 for the six-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
The Veloster SR Turbo’s 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged petrol engine generates 150kW of power and 265Nm of torque.
While Hyundai is yet to announce official 0-100km/h times, CarAdvice achieved 7.5 seconds in the automatic and 7.8 seconds in the manual during our Korean test of the car.
Unlike the naturally aspirated Veloster, the SR Turbo is not available with a dual-clutch transmission due to the engine’s increased torque levels, and instead features a conventional six-speed automatic.
Additional equipment for the Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo includes 18-inch alloy wheels, uprated brakes with larger (300mm) brake rotors up front, representing a 20 per cent increase over the standard Veloster, a quicker steering rack with 2.78 turns from lock to lock, a revised suspension package, twin circular exhausts, a panoramic glass sunroof, leather/leatherette sports bucket seats and a seven-inch LCD touchscreen with satellite navigation.
The Veloster SR Turbo is available in a choice of six colours including the model-specific Marmalade (chameleon colour that changes with your angle of vision), Young Gun (Matte) and pearl-effect Phantom Black, as well as Veloster Red, Storm Trooper White and Battleship.
Hyundai Australia has also introduced satellite navigation as standard equipment on all Veloster+ models, as well as a seat-back pocket on the passenger side and a luggage net. A rear window wiper has been added to both the Veloster and Veloster+.
