Differences between the 2013 Hyundai Veloster and the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo models are actually pretty simple other then forty five hundred gap in pricing there is actually quite a bit of differences so depending on if you want a Turbo like no other car on the road the this is it!
2013 Veloster has a starting MSRP of only $17,600 and the Turbo has a starting MSRP of only $22,100. This 3-door design doesn’t look like any other car, its looks are rockin awesome and both seat four! It also has a large list of features that most people love our favorite is the third door. The rear hatch of course with the split seat folded allows you to bring along your beach gear including your surfboard to match your surf hair that was created with the optional panoramic sunroof.
A bit of a difference with the grills the 2013 Hyundai Veloster has an aggressive front grille, flanked with it’s very distinctive LED headlight accents and a beveled hood with dual scoops, gives Veloster a look that sets it apart from the competition. The Turbo Grille, lights and major attitude further sets itself apart with its wide-mouthed grille and bodykit for a low, aggressive stance. It also features fascia-encased front fog lights and uniquely lit projector-type headlights with LED accents.
Other distinctive difference between the two is; the chrome –tipped exhaust, the Veloster has the squared, chrome-tipped dual exhaust, while the Veloster Turbo distinguishes itself with centered round exhaust ports. Plus the Veloster has 17” allow wheel with painted inserts option and the Turbo has the 18” alloy wheels with chrome inserts.
Veloster gets on average 37MPG Hwy with the 138-hp 1.6L GDI DOHC D-CVVT 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed manual transmission or optional 6-Speed EcoShift™ Dual Clutch Transmission. The Veloster Turbo gets a cool on average 35MPG HWY with the 201-hp twin-scroll turbocharged1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed manual transmission or optional 6-speed automatic transmission with sport-tuned steering and sports some unique 18-inch alloy wheels with chrome accent.
It’s really hard to make a choice with such a smoking hot looking unique car with 3 doors, seats 4 and has so many features for such a low price. We are going to go with the Veloster slightly better MPG, lower price and still get the dual centered chrome-tipped exhaust outlets that make it so sporty looking and sounds awesome!
