Hyundai has announced a series of updates to the 2014 Veloster.
Looking virtually identical to last year's model, the 2014 Veloster gains additional standard equipment including daytime running lights, a driver’s blind-spot mirror and a rearview camera. The cars are also equipped with Hyundai's Assurance Connected Care telematics system which is free for three years.
The Veloster Turbo goes a step further as it boasts a new Active Sound Design system that promises to provide a "richer in-cabin powertrain sound character for an even more involving driving experience, especially during spirited driving." The model also gains a new Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) system which uses "wheel speed sensors coupled with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) algorithms to apply precise braking force to the inside front wheel during spirited cornering."
Hyundai also revealed the success of the Veloster RE:MIX has caused the company to develop additional special editions. The company declined to go into specifics but said to look for the next "Veloster performance model" at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
