Every now and then, an automaker sees fit to design a sporty car, often a two door hatchback, using the bones and structure of an existing econocar. This is the basis on which the Hyundai Veloster has traded since it was introduced way back in, uh, wow, 2011. With a 201hp turbocharged inline-four driving the front wheels, this funky asymmetrical hatch strives to add a bit of zip to its economy roots.
We spent a week with this three-door Century White hatchback and found it has a lot to offer buyers who are looking for a bit of fun but don’t want to spend GTI levels of Simoleons to get it (the 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo stickers at $24,956 including rebates available as of this writing). Our tester was equipped with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Hrm. #SaveTheManuals
