Used Car: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Review

Review Last Updated: 10/24/14

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.
