Hyundai drops the Veloster in the UK image

Hyundai has decided not to offer the Veloster in the United Kingdom anymore because of slow sales.

The South Korean based automaker Hyundai was believed to have struck gold when it unveiled its Veloster, a few years back, but now the model is struggling to survive in several markets. One of these markets is the United Kingdom, where the carmaker has decided, recently, to stop offering the model. This is believed to have happened because of the slow sales of the car. If you thought that the Veloster will not get a replacement, think again, because the facelifted version of the i30 has just received a new Turbo variant, with 186 HP (137 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) 1.6L turbo engine.

The Hyundai Veloster has been introduced back in 2011 and it hit the production line in the same year. This is being produced in Ulsan, South Korea, and it has a front engine and front-wheel drive layout, riding on the FS platform. The Veloster has 4,219 mm in length, 1,806 mm in width, 1,400 mm in height and in the Turbo it weighs 1,363 kg. The engine lineup includes three 1.6 liter Gamma units, with two GDI I4s and an I4, along with three transmissions, a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and 6-speed double clutch.
