Hyundai has pulled the wraps off the 2014 Veloster, which has received a number of updates which should make its more appealing to its future customers.
Looking basically identical to the 2013 model year, the 2014 Hyundai Veloster has received some standard equipment like the driver’s blind spot mirror, the rearview camera, the daytime running lights, the Hyundai Assurance Connected Care telematics system, free for three years and others. Hyundai says that the Veloster Turbo is now getting the Active Sound Design system, which is obvious what its main role is, along with the new TVC (Torque Vectoring Control).
“Both Veloster and Veloster Turbo models feature cutting-edge powertrain technologies like direct injection, optimizing their appeal to youthful customers by combining excellent fuel economy, spirited performance and low emissions without compromise”, as the carmaker is saying in its official press release.
