The friendly staff at Wallace Hyundai in Stuart, FL, invite you to come visit our showroom and take this baby for a spin. If you're a sports-minded driver in Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City or Jupiter, FL, the 2015 Veloster is waiting for you to take it home!
Let's see how the 2015 Hyundai Veloster stacks up against the Scion tC.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
Part subcompact, part coupe and part hatchback, the 2015 Veloster is a stand-out in any car class. A 1.6-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing and 138hp is standard on the Veloster and Re:Flex trims, while the Turbo editions boost the horsepower to a potent 201 thanks to a standard turbo engine. FWD is standard on all trims as well as a 6-speed manual transmission (paddle shifters available as an option on the base and Turbo trims) while the Re:Flex Edition adds EcoShift Dual Clutch transmission. 6-speed automatic transmission is only available on the Veloster Turbo. The Scion tC is available with only one engine, a 179 horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. A 6-speed manual transmission is also standard. The Scion can move from 0-60 in 7.5 seconds while the Turbo Veloster beats it in 7.1 seconds.
HYUNDAI VELOSTER VALUE VS SCION TC VALUE
If you're on a budget and want a sporty vehicle to put your pedal to the metal, the 2015 Veloster is the answer. With a starting MSRP of only $18,000, it's far lower than the starting price of the tC, which begins at $19,980 -- almost $2000 more than the Veloster. And look at what you get for that base price! All models come with standard dual foldaway heated power outside mirrors, a centered high-mount stop light, chrome exhausts and headlights with LED accents. And get ready to launch once you take a seat in the sporty cockpit. A 7-inch touchscreen high-res display with rearview camera is standard on all trims, as well as Bluetooth, IPod connectivity and audio, phone and cruise steering-wheel mounted controls. In addition to its much higher price tag, you'll get a Pioneer Standard Display audio system with only a 6.1-inch display and no rearview camera. Is that lack of features worth another 2 grand?
VELOSTER FUEL ECONOMY COMPARED TO TC FUEL ECONOMY
Want to keep even more money in your pocket? The 2015 Veloster will help you do just that, with its EPA estimated 27 city/36 highway mpg. Pretty incredible for a sports car. The Scion tC lags behind in this category as well, garnering only an estimated 23 city/31 highway mpg. So what are you waiting for? The 2015 Hyundai Veloster has your name on it.
