Hyundai has recently announced the starting price for the Veloster model in Australia, which has been set at AUD23.990.

With the turbo version of the Veloster being on the way, Hyundai says that the model which is now available in Australia too is coming in two trim levels. The Hyundai Veloster is coming with ESP, hill start assist for the DCT version, LCD touch-screen and the “classic” door arrangement as standard, but its future Australian customers will also be able to choose the higher equipment grade, the Veloster+, which is coming with leather seats, engine start button, electric driver’s seat, panoramic sunroof, color-coded 18-inch alloy wheels and some other interesting features.

According to the South Korean based automaker, the Hyundai Veloster in its entry-level version has a starting price of AUD23.990 in Australia, while the top of the line is coming from AUD27.990. Power to the Hyundai Veloster is being provided by a single engine, the 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol unit, with direct injection, developing a total output of 140 horsepower and having a peak torque of 167 Nm. The engine is mated as standard to a six-speed manual transmission, but an automatic one is also available, as an option, for an extra AUD2.000. Both versions burn an average of 6.4l/100km of fuel.
