How Much Does a 2021 Hyundai Veloster Cost?

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster comes in six trims: 2.0, 2.0 Premium, Turbo R-Spec, Turbo, Turbo Ultimate and N. All but the N come as a complete package, meaning the only options are some dealer installed accessories. The Veloster 2.0 ($18,900, plus destination charge) comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, 17-in alloy wheels, drive mode select, forward-collision warning, a driver’s blind-spot mirror, driver attention warning, lane-keeping assist, a rearview camera, dual power heated outside mirrors, automatic headlights, a rear wiper/washer, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, exterior temperature display, remote keyless entry, cruise control, a 7-in display audio with 6 speakers, Bluetooth, USB port plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Opting for the more popular automatic transmission costs $1,000 more. The 2.0 Premium ($23,100) comes standard with the 6-speed automatic transmission plus 18-in wheels, blind-spot monitoring, an 8-in touchscreen display with SiriusXM satellite radio, an 8-speaker Infinity audio, a wide power sunroof, a wireless charging pad, Blue Link connected services, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic climate control, a one-touch up driver’s side power window, heated front seats, cloth seats with leather bolsters and a proximity key entry with push-button start.

The Turbo ($25,750) adds back the heated front seats, power sunroof and automatic climate control, then adds power lumbar for the driver, auto defogging windshield and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Turbo Ultimate ($28,450) adds forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, navigation, leather seating, and a head-up display.

2021 Hyundai Veloster vs the competition

2020 Honda Civic Si — Available as a sedan or coupe, the Civic Si has about the same horsepower as the Veloster Turbo but performs a bit better in the curves. 2020 Volkswagen GTI — The GTI isn’t as potent as the most powerful Veloster, but it feels crisper than even the N trim, offers a more upscale interior and has four doors versus three. 2020 Mini Hardtop 4-Door – Another small but relatively versatile hatchback, the Mini brings its own charms and premium aesthetic. Used VW Golf R — A 2015-2017 VW Golf R delivers nearly 300 hp, has standard all-wheel drive and some of the best sport seats in the industry. It’s also available with a manual or automatic transmission.
