What Our Members Are Saying about the Available Features of the 2015 Hyundai Veloster

2015 Hyundai Veloster Available Features: Cons
2014 3dr Hatch turbocharged 201hp 1.6L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The only core choice you get to make when you buy the R-Spec is the color. It's only available as a 6MT Turbo, and all other options (save for the dealer add-ons like wheel locks, cargo nets and the like) are unavailable without stepping up to the 'standard' Veloster Turbo. The R-Spec is fairly well-equipped for the $21K asking price, regardless.
