Veloster 1.6 GDi $24,490, Veloster+ $29,490, 1.6 Turbo $29,990 Turbo+ $33,990 (auto adds $2500).

EQUIP­MENT

Not many changes to equip­ment list, apart from new colour in­serts on the seats for turbo mod­els and new al­loy wheels with wider tyres. SR Turbo vari­ants also get the flex steer setup and the top of the range model gets heated and ven­ti­lated seats and a new in­stru­ment clus­ter. Dou­ble-clutch sev­en­speed auto for turbo vari­ants.

PER­FOR­MANCE

No changes to en­gine out­puts, although the new dou­ble-clutch trans­mis­sion on turbo mod­els im­proves fuel ef­fi­ciency.

DRIV­ING

Tweaks to the sus­pen­sion are claimed to im­prove turn-in and sure­foot­ed­ness over rough sur­faces. Flex steer on Turbo + has three steer­ing set­tings — sport, nor­mal and com­fort.

DE­SIGN

Sub­tle ex­te­rior changes in­clude new grey fin­ish on the grille and new al­loy wheels. There are new colours for the turbo vari­ants. In the cabin, there are a new in­stru­ment panel de­sign and coloured high­lights through­out for a sportier am­bi­ence.
