Hey Dan, did this car really feel like it had 201hp? Having reviewed as
many and varied types of vehicle that you have, I thought you would be the
most qualified person to answer this but the prevailing theory is that
Korean horse power is not the same as standard power? They seem to over
estimate their numbers. Lots of reviews on this car suggests it runs more
like a 170hp car.

labounti says:

This car should be faster or cheaper. A 200 HP Jetta GLI will out run this.

Rain Nguyen says:

This should be faster for how it looks. But I love it! So sexy with the
three doors:) affordable,looks great,great fuel economy,coupe mix with
hatch sooooo perfect:)!!!!!!!

My 1984 Fiero already had that upshift indicator/light… =D

Courtney Ballard says:

Veloster turbo is automatic. Look it up.

Nemanja Sukunda says:

500 miles with a tank is imposible even with the eco mode !

Matthew Decker says:

Coasting out of gear isn’t safe

RichardPeterNuss says:

Yes let’s watch a little “video game” tutorial on how to drive like a
dumbass and have a HEAD ON Collision watching it killing a family of
4…YES!!!!All these fucking screens that take ur eyes off the road outta
be shoved up someones asses. 98% of all people can’t drive at the best of
times, giving em shit to pay attention LESS….PRICELESS! Fucking MORONS!!

Tomas Molinari says:

Unless you’re going to a race track, I don’t see the need for a FASTER,
HARDER engine. To be frank, the 201 hp, 195-lb torque with Dual clutch
transmission and a twin-scroll turbocharger is all you need to beat the
traffic and handle in the corners.

Ribeirasacra says:

So what is it?
Watch the screen and forget road safety or road safety and forget the
screen?
BTW coasting out of gear is not safe

This car is trying hard with that roofline to look like the Nissan 370Z.

JuggleAddict says:

but most cars today get well over 20 to the gallon, and the gallon is
cheaper than $4 in most places. You’re making it sound worse than it really
is. Most people that compare gas prices are looking at a specific type of
car where in the range usually doesn’t vary more than 5 miles to the
gallon. That difference over 100,000 miles is comparable to an option
package on a car these days.

i own a VW gti.. and i will still get this Volester..!!! nice ride.. good
power for 1.6T

icemanroyal says:

the upshift light lol reminds me of 1980’s ford escort with power seatbelts
and upshift light,annoying thing,i shift by ear and feel, i can tell when
the best time to shift up is without bogging the engine down for best fuel
economy.Whatever happened to people actually driving and not relying on
computers to do everything for them?I know computers have improved cars in
lots of ways, but i think that s too much. just my opinion.Also, i really
like the styling on this car especially from the rear

Rainier Solanzo says:

It’s the same thing. When you multiply two things, order doesn’t matter.
Torque = Force * Distance = Distance * Force = lb * ft = ft * lb

Many thanks for the kind words, Mikldude. Princeton/Central New Jersey is
our usual stomping grounds. The Jersey Shore footage is from Long Beach
Island.

harlemkiid149 says:

At what RPM’s does the turbo spool and what’s the redline?

MPGomatic says:

Excellent stuff! I need to haul my bicycle up out of the basement, air up
the tires, and go for a ride … 🙂

Bart Mlotkowski says:

long gear ratiooo

Windgrace says:

Where’d all your reviews go? Are you gonna do the Accord? Escape?

viperbeatsvette says:

I’d hate this car less if they didn’t have 3 fucking doors, it’s not quite
a coupe, it’s not quite a 4 door hatch, and it’s not quite a sports car
since its fwd. it’s shit

steven valdez says:

Gen smokes those cars bro

OriginDestiny says:

The black/blue ultimate package turbo is THE best

mikldude says:

i`m a big fan of your clips/work Dan, also Steve Hammes(2 best motoring
testers on the tube), while i`m not a hyundai fan, the fuel economy screen
looks quiet good, also a nice town/area your driving through , where is
this?

MPGomatic says:

Many thanks for the support!
