Hyundai Veloster 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Hyundai Veloster 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Veloster zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Veloster 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Hyundai Veloster engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Hyundai Veloster is a sports car that has much more to offer than sporty look. It is spacious though has three doors. Driving this car will give you the feeling of rocking behind a sports car.

Hyundai Veloster was first introduced in the production market in 2011. The following year, in 2012, the Veloster Turbo version came in, some changes were done to the body panels and exhausts to incorporate twin exhausts. In 2014, this model welcomed the RE: FLEX edition and significant changes were applied to the lights. The taillights and head lights were all LED. The latest version of the Veloster is the 2016 Rally edition. Just as the name suggests it, this Hyundai Veloster is made just for a rally. The changes made in the rally version: the steering wheel was stiffened, some carbon fibre side accents were added, and the roof was changed to metal.

A 1.6-liter engine is what each and every version of Veloster possesses. The engine is a four-cylinder which maximizes direct-inject. When it comes to the horsepower and 0-60 acceleration, everything changes. Not surprisingly, those two depend on the type of the engine.  GDi, MDi and an MDi turbo are the three engine options that the Hyundai Veloster offers. An automatic Veloster with a GDi provides 0-60 acceleration in 11.5 seconds whereas a manual takes 10.7 seconds.

On the other hand, an automatic Veloster with an MDi engine takes about 10.3 seconds to hit that 0-60 acceleration, but the manual takes 9.7 seconds. Turbo boosts up and makes things interesting. That is why the 0-60 timelapse of an MDi turbo engine is the best. An automatic Veloster with an MDi turbo engine manages the 0-60 acceleration in 8.1 seconds whereas a manual beats it in 7.4 seconds.

The look of the Veloster is on a whole new level. Except for the rally version, the other Veloster versions have sunroofs. It is satisfying to have natural light shining in the car and a refreshing breeze blowing in.  The alloy rims which are 18’’ big have that classy and sporty look. Veloster is not that heavy, the different versions have weight ranges from 1100kg- 1400kgs.It is not a coincidence that the turbo version has much weight.  

Hyundai Veloster is unique; its three-door feature gives that privilege. In addition to that, the variation in colors is also worth it to bring about diversification. Good performance is another feature you get from this car especially when it comes to the turbo version, from the information above you can agree.

The Drawback of Hyundai Veloster is a low roof. This inconveniences you when getting in the car. Likewise, the back seats are not that much spaced as you think. But after all, Hyundai Veloster is a great car.
