2017 Hyundai Veloster pricingin Ashburn, VA
Which Veloster does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
The 2017 Hyundai Veloster is a compact car with a unique characteristic: Instead of being a two-door or a four-door with a hatchback, it's a three-door. The driver gets one large door, and the passenger side of the vehicle has two smaller doors. Compared to a similarly sized coupe, it's a genius solution to the problem of being able to effectively access the rear seat in such a small car, and it works great. Combine that with its tech-heavy standard features list, the Veloster could be just the thing if you're looking for a small, distinctively styled car. But it's not perfect.
From a price perspective, the base Hyundai Veloster hangs with a crowd of equally fuel-efficient four-door hatchbacks. Most of them are roomier, more comfortable to drive and offer superior acceleration. The Veloster Turbo would seem to be a good solution to the above considering its 201-horsepower engine. But compared to other "hot hatches," performance is again underwhelming. Overall, we like how the Veloster stands out on the road but think you'll be happier with a more well-rounded rival two-door or four-door small car instead.
Trim levels & features
The 2017 Veloster is available in four trims. The base Veloster comes pretty well equipped with features. The new-for-2017 Veloster Value Edition adds premium features and options that are found on the Turbo model. The Veloster Turbo R Spec is the enthusiast's choice, with sport-tuned suspension, manual transmission and R Spec specific interior bits. At the top of the price range is the Veloster Turbo. It comes with the most luxury-oriented accoutrements, such as leather seating and heated seats, for not much more money.
Highlights for the base Veloster include 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and a six-speaker sound system. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (132 hp, 120 pound-feet of torque) powers the front wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The Veloster Value Edition upgrades to 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a premium eight-speaker sound system and a navigation system. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are also standard, and they control the standard six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.
If you want a sportier feel than the base Veloster offers, check out the Veloster Turbo R Spec. It's equipped more like the base Veloster but comes with a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine (201 hp, 195 lb-ft of torque), sport-tuned suspension and steering, and a B&M short-throw shifter for the six-speed manual transmission. It also has an aerodynamic body kit, projector headlights and special interior trim.
At the top, the Veloster Turbo keeps the turbocharged engine and offers the dual-clutch automatic as an option. It also reverts to a more comfortable suspension setup. Inside, you'll find leather seating surfaces and an upgraded gauge cluster. You'll need to order the optional Turbo Tech Package, however, to get the panoramic sunroof, navigation system and dual-zone climate control.

2017 Hyundai Veloster for Sale
The 2017 Hyundai Veloster is virtually identical to the Veloster that was first introduced in 2011. The three-door hatchback form factor aims to maximize utility without sacrificing a compact footprint. There are two smaller doors on the passenger side, with one large door for the driver. A large rear hatch opens to a deep but narrow cargo area. Finally, the 60/40-split rear seats can fold down for even more cargo volume.
For 2017, the standard Veloster model returns and is still relatively well equipped. Producing just 132 horsepower, its 1.6-liter non-turbocharged engine is a little on the anemic side for genuine sport driving, but it should be fine for the daily commute. You can pick either a six-speed manual or a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, and 17-inch alloy wheels come standard. A 7-inch touchscreen display handles infotainment duties and, though navigation is not included, the system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The new-for-2017 Veloster Value Edition splits the difference between the higher-end turbocharged models and the standard Veloster. Feature-rich, the Value Edition is powered by the same engine as the standard Veloster mated to the six-speed automatic transmission. It comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, automatic climate control and keyless entry with push-button starting. This puts the Value Edition at the sweet spot for value.
If you want performance, check out the Veloster Turbo R Spec. Powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four that produces 201 horsepower, you can row your own gears via a B&M short shifter and a six-speed manual transmission. The R Spec also gets its own suspension calibration, and a unique interior featuring red interior trim and red seat belts.
The Veloster Turbo upgrades the interior with two-tone leather seating surfaces, with a Turbo specific silver-black or orange-black color scheme, and the option to equip the car with a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. Interestingly, you have to specify a Tech Package in order to get some options that are standard on the Value Edition, such as panoramic roof and navigation.
The compact segment used to be full of boxy and boring cars, and these days, Hyundai is not the only one bringing something different to the table. But no matter what configuration you're interested in, let Edmunds find the perfect Veloster for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Hyundai Veloster?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
