The Hyundai Veloster‘s unique design and exceptional package has become an
instant success in Australia and now the naturally aspirated Veloster range is joined by the all-new Veloster SR Turbo
delivering enhanced levels of performance and specification.
Designed at Hyundai’s Namyang R&D Centre in Korea, the Veloster range demonstrates the company’s ‘Fluidic
Sculpture’ language, challenging conventional sports car design theories with the introduction of the game-changing 2+1
door concept, which offers a unique forward-hinged third door located on the passenger side for easy rear-seat access and
a single door on the driver’s side.
The Veloster SR Turbo adds some spice to the affordable sports car market. Powered by the all-new Gamma 1.6-litre
four-cylinder twin-scroll Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection (T-GDI) engine, the Veloster SR Turbo delivers 46% more peak
power (150 kW @ 6,000 rpm) and 60% more maximum torque (265 Nm @ 1750 - 4,500 rpm) than the naturally aspirated 1.6-litre
GDI engine found in the Veloster and Veloster+ models. The Veloster SR Turbo is available with the option of a six-speed
manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission, the latter fitted with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
With manufacturer’s list pricing* starting at $31,990*, the Veloster SR Turbo balances performance and practicality

2+1 door concept
The Hyundai Veloster range combines the style of a coupe and the functionality of a hatchback, while also
incorporating an additional curb-side door. Hyundai’s unique design implements a conventionally hinged rear (third) door
on the curb-side of the Veloster, providing safe and ready access to the surprisingly spacious rear seats. The curb-side
rear door handle is hidden to maintain an uncompromised visual flow.
The Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo takes the unique design concept one step further with sports inspired exterior
modifications, providing a more potent visual identity. The front, dominated by a large hexagonal grille is balanced with
round front fog lamps and projector beam headlamps with daytime running lights, make an aggressive statement. Standard
are 18” alloy wheels with chrome inserts, fitted with low profile tyres, and distinctive sculpted side skirts.
The rear of the Veloster SR Turbo is instantly distinguished by a sports inspired rear diffuser in the lower fascia
with twin circular chrome exhaust tips housed in a dynamic rear bumper. This free-flowing exhaust design also provides a
more sporting engine note, which will delight enthusiasts. The sweeping panorama glass sunroof arches down to meet the
glass hatch with rear spoiler feature, with circular rear reflectors finishing this bold new interpretation.
The Veloster SR Turbo’s powerful exterior is echoed in its cabin treatment. The centre console stack, finished with a
modern metallic look, becomes the focal point and houses the latest in multimedia technology, providing an exceptional
entertainment experience from its multi-functional 7-inch LCD touchscreen.
The new seating trim includes fake-leather/leatherette front sports bucket seating featuring a distinctive
turbo-embroidered embellishment, with power driver’s seat incorporating lumbar support to ensure a high level of comfort.
In addition, driver and passenger comfort is enhanced with height adjustable front active head restraints, height
adjustable rear head restraints, and climate control air conditioning. Driver comfort is enhanced with a tilt and reach
adjustable steering wheel.
Additional attention to convenience is provided through the inclusion of a driver’s side ‘anti-pinch’ power window and
numerous stowage options for front and rear passengers.
The Supervision Instrument Cluster, featuring Hyundai’s signature blue back-lighting, provides greater clarity for the
driver while a large centre display provides a plethora of vehicle operation and trip information, including trip
computer with instant and average fuel consumption, distance to empty, trip distance, average speed, elapsed time
read-out and tyre pressure monitoring system.
All driver management systems, including audio, phone, trip computer and cruise control, are operated with steering
wheel mounted finger-tip convenience. Paddle-shift transmission controls, for enthusiasts who enjoy sport-style manual
gear selection, are standard on the automatic variant.
A striking two-piece panorama glass roof features in the Veloster SR Turbo’s light and airy interior cabin.
Encompassing the latest in multimedia technology, the Veloster SR Turbo delivers a premium in-car entertainment
experience from its multi-functional and easy to use 7” LCD touchscreen.
The Veloster SR Turbo introduces Hyundai’s state-of-the-art satellite navigation system. Incorporating SUNA live
traffic updates, lane guidance, junction views, speed limits, speed warnings and camera alerts, the system allows the
driver to take command of the road and enjoy driving. Also included is a 3 year NAVTEQ MapCare plan, which provides up to
two annual complimentary map updates on completion of a scheduled service at a participating Hyundai service centre.
The premium audio system incorporates an in-dash MP3 CD player and AM/FM radio tuner, four speakers, a centre speaker,
two tweeters, and a subwoofer all powered by an external amplifier. Additional features such as USB/Auxiliary
connectivity with digital iPod® compatibility and Bluetooth® phone
and audio streaming are also standard.
The cleverly integrated twin-scroll turbine housing and exhaust manifold, when combined with direct injection, results
in near-instantaneous power delivery, minimal turbo lag, and usable low-end torque from the 1.6-litre four-cylinder
twin-scroll Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection (T-GDI) engine.
A twin-scroll turbo recovers even more energy from the exhaust than a single-scroll turbocharger, due to a divided
manifold. The twin-scroll design separates the cylinders whose exhaust gas pulses interfere with each other, resulting in
improved pressure distribution in the exhaust ports and a more efficient delivery of exhaust gas energy to the
The twin-scroll turbocharger design has several other advantages over traditional, single-scroll turbocharging
- Improved combustion efficiency
- Low engine-speed efficienc
- Kinetic exhaust gas energy is not wasted or trapped
- Cooler cylinder temperatures
- Lower exhaust temperatures
- Better pressure distribution in the exhaust ports and more efficient delivery of exhaust gas energy to the
The Veloster’s twin-scroll turbo has superior handling of exhaust gas separation at the turbine leading to improved
low-end torque and faster transient torque response.
Two key features of Hyundai’s twin-scroll turbocharger setup are:
- The exhaust manifold and the twin-scroll turbine housing are cast in a patent pending one-piece design
- The waste-gate for the turbocharger uses a motor-driven electrical controller instead of being mechanically
The Veloster SR Turbo delivers 46% more peak power (150 kW @ 6,000 rpm) and 60% more maximum torque (265 Nm @ 1,750 -
4,500 rpm) than the naturally aspirated 1.6-litre GDI engine found in the Veloster and Veloster+ models.
The Veloster SR Turbo is paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission,
with both transmissions being developed in-house by Hyundai.
The six-speed automatic transmission option with steering wheel mounted paddle shifter controls is used in place of
the naturally aspirated Veloster’s dual clutch transmission. This is due to the increased torque output from the
1.6-litre T-GDI engine. The Veloster SR Turbo’s automatic transmission has been carefully mapped to ensure rapid
acceleration from standstill and fast, smooth changes on the move.

Ride and handling
Extensive tuning and specific calibration of the suspension system was undertaken in Australia over thousands of
kilometres and numerous road conditions to ensure maximum stability while maintaining exceptional comfort.
The Veloster SR Turbo is fitted with a McPherson strut front suspension, coil springs, gas shock absorbers, and a 24
mm diameter front stabiliser. The rear suspension is a light-weight V-torsion beam, a Hyundai-first with an integrated
stabiliser bar to allow bracing of the arms for greater body roll control.
The Veloster SR Turbo is fitted with front and rear Sachs dampers. The front dampers include rebound springs for
better front end responsiveness, which allow sharper and more accurate changes of direction. The rear dampers are high
performance Mono-tube for enhanced ride comfort.
The Veloster SR Turbo braking performance has been increased, thanks to a 20 mm increase in the diameter of the front
brake discs (to 300 mm) and a 5 mm increase in width. In addition the front callipers have been repositioned to optimise
The Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo features four-wheel disc brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake
Assist to provide maximum braking force when a panic stop is detected, and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) to
automatically adjust the braking force between front and rear axles based on vehicle loading conditions.
Motor Driven Power Steering
The speed sensitive Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) is unique to Veloster SR Turbo and a quicker rack (2.78 turns
lock to lock) has been selected This adjustment provides sharper response and improved on-centre feel giving drivers
precise cornering, feedback and control.
MDPS is used on the Veloster SR Turbo in-lieu of a conventional hydraulic system utilising an electric motor to enable
varying degrees of power assist for different situations. MDPS not only minimises weight and fuel consumption, but allows
the integration of the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system. Tuning of the MDPS system was performed in Australia to
suit local conditions and driver preferences.
Advanced safety technology
The Veloster SR Turbo achieves the maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating to ensure good protection for occupants.
Active safety is augmented with the use of Hyundai’s innovative Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, which
integrates the Motor Driven Power System (MDPS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and the Traction Control System (TCS)
to provide enhanced directional stability.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist System (BAS) are also
Occupant safety is heightened in the event of a side collision through the application of an asymmetric dual centre
rail roof and pillar structure. For increased protection in a frontal collision, both the dash cross member and dash
cross side member have been engineered to increase strength.
The Veloster SR Turbo features a full host of advanced passive safety features including six airbags as standard;
including driver and front passenger, driver and front passenger side (thorax) and full-length curtain airbags, height
adjustable front active head restraints, load limiters and height adjustable front seat belts.
