Update: full pricing and specifications have now been revealed. Article updated.


Hyundai has confirmed Australian pricing for the new Veloster SR Turbo - the local name for the Veloster Turbo revealed in January - ahead of this week's debut.

Announced on the company's Australian Facebook page, the Veloster SR Turbo will kick off at $31,990 (plus on-roads).

Matched with a six-speed manual transmission, the Veloster SR Turbo will carry a $4000 premium over the 103kW manual-equipped Veloster+ 1.6 GDI.

In six-speed automatic form, the Veloster SR Turbo is priced at $33,990.

 

Mechanical Package

The Veloster SR Turbo is powered by Hyundai's new 1.6 litre direct-injected and twin-scroll turbocharged petrol engine, delivering 150kW and 265Nm of torque.

There is a six-speed manual transmission, along with a six-speed auto with paddle shifters - althoug the latter is a a hydraulic unit, not the DCT in the non-turbo model.

The turbocharged Veloster also gets 300mm ventilated front disc brakes - 20mm up from the regular model - and a recalibrated suspension package.

There's also a unique motor-driven power steering calibration and a quicker rack, whipping 2.78 turns lock to lock.

 

Features

The Veloster SR Turbo will bring a handful of styling tweaks. Among them, a unique front-end that does away with the body-coloured panel that splits the regular model's grille, along with restyled foglight bezels and a longer front lip.

Similar tweaks have been made at the rear end, with new deep-set reflector housings surrounding a more prominent rear diffuser and a pair of circular exhaust tips.

i40 Tourer-like LED taillights also replace the bulbs of the regular model. Along the side is a pair of taller skirts, and the Turbo model also gets its own unique 18-inch five-spoke wheel design.

Inside, the Veloster SR Turbo is fitted with leather/leatherette sports bucket seats, and Hyundai's satellite navigation system is integrated into the seven-inch touch-screen LCD display.

The system incorporates SUNA live traffic, lane guidance, junction views, speed limits, speed warnings and camera alerts and includes a complimentary three-year NAVTEQ MapCare plan.
