The 2020 Hyundai Veloster comes with a choice of two engines.
The base Veloster uses a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 110kW and 180Nm, mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
The Turbo and Turbo Premium, as their names suggest, use a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine producing 150kW and 265Nm.
Turbo models offer a choice between a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The base 2020 Hyundai Veloster consumes 7.0L/100km on the combined cycle equipped with the standard six-speed manual. With the optional six-speed auto, that rises to 7.1L/100km.
The Veloster Turbo and Turbo Premium consume 7.3L/100km when equipped with the six-speed manual but only 6.9L/100km with the optional dual-clutch automatic.
