Used Car: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Review
Though they liked its attractive cabin, critics said the 2013 Hyundai Veloster’s base powertrain is sluggish and it doesn’t handle as athletically as rivals.
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster is ranked:
Reviewers wrote that the 2013 Hyundai Veloster is slow to accelerate when equipped with its base four-cylinder engine. New for 2013, the Veloster Turbo is substantially peppier, reviewers said, but can’t compete with speedier rivals like the Mini Cooper. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic (automated manual) is available. Equipped with the automatic, the 2013 Veloster gets an EPA-estimated 28/37 mpg city/ highway, which is good for the class. Some critics reported that the Veloster takes corners admirably, but many noted that it doesn’t feel especially agile, and that the Veloster has a harsh ride and vague steering.
Reviewers said the 2013 Hyundai Veloster has a cabin that’s furnished with attractive materials that are appropriate for the class. The Veloster seats four, and test drivers wrote that a low roof cuts down on back-seat headroom. The base 2013 Veloster comes with Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system with a touch-screen display, satellite radio and a USB port. Available features include a panoramic sunroof, a premium sound system, a rearview camera, navigation, heated front seats and leather upholstery. Most test drivers said that the Dimension audio system sounds outstanding, and they wrote that the touch-screen audio system is simple to use.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2013 Kia Forte is available as a sedan, hatchback or coupe, and test drivers agreed it has a lot of standard features for the class. Reviewers reported that the Forte also offers a useful amount of trunk space and an attractive interior design.
Reviewers said that the 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX offers a thrilling amount of power and brisk acceleration. The WRX also comes standard with all-wheel drive, and critics said it has ample legroom in the back seat.
