I have 1,000 miles on mine and it is fun to drive.
Averaging 35 mpg.
If you want speed don't buy the car, wait for the turbo.
Otherwise, it handles great, lots of amenities, looks awesome, and lot of room for a small car.
I went from an Acura TL to the Veloster.
Miss the TL's hp but love everything else about the Veloster.
Stereo is great, love the interior and exterior styling.
Nothing on the road looks like this.
Mpg is promised as delivered.
Just like everyone else, would have loved to have had a few more ponies.
I knew going in, I wasn't getting a sports car so not a big deal.
