Hyundai's commitment to making the Gamma engine exceptionally fuel efficient continues by coupling it using a conventional six-speed manual transmission or a six-rate EcoShift dual-clutch transmission (DCT) .
Hyundai's EcoShift DCT takes the advantages of a manual transmission and combines them with automatic transmission advantages, like smooth shift quality and high comfort levels. Furthermore, the EcoShift DCT empowers direct connection for uninterrupted torque transfer and high efficiency .
This powertrain also offers an Active ECO manner which changes transmission and engine control. The EcoShift DCT additionally integrates Hyundai's Hillstart Assist Control (HAC). HAC was made to minimize rolling back on steep inclines.
Veloster Turbo is paired with a regular six-speed manual transmission or a fresh for 2016 seven-rate dual clutch (DCT) automatic transmission. Hyundai developed in house both transmissions. This transmission was specially engineered to deal with the increased torque output from your turbocharged engine.

TURBO VERSION EXCLUSIVE:
All Veloster Turbo versions offer Torque Vectoring Control (TVC). This cornering attribute that is active, using abilities (ESC) and powertrain control systems, enables cornering that is dynamic to enhance during avid driving. TVC uses wheel speed sensors coupled to employ braking force that is exact to the inside front wheel. This active braking redirects power to the external front wheel reducing wheelspin for increased cornering hold and corner-leave acceleration. Overall, this supplies an incremental border to Veloster Turbo motorists during enthusiastic driving.
Veloster Turbo additionally features a faster-ratio steering stand and a revised steering system calibration to fit, which gives drivers control, feedback and exact cornering. The 18-inch alloy wheel tire width was raised by 10 mm designed to extract maximum functionality without compromising ride.

The rear suspension is a lightweight V-torsion beam, with the integrated 24-mm stabilizer bar to further control body roll and to permit bracing of the arms. The rear suspension uses monotube shock absorbers for ride comfort.
Veloster features electric power steering system to changing driving conditions while enhancing fuel economy on a traditional steering system that corrects help.
The Veloster Turbo gets the same a 104.3-inch wheelbase, but is 1.2 inches more (167.3 inches) and 0.6 inches broader (71.1 inches).

ADVANCED STANDARD SECURITY
All Velosters attribute a rearview camera fitted to all models for outstanding parking visibility. Velosters have an extraordinary amount of standard safety features for the sporty coupe section emphasized by a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, which handles ESC (Electronic Stability Control) as well as the Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS).
The foremost is when a driver accelerates or brakes -mu surface (slick on one side, dry sidewalk on the opposite) as well as the vehicle needs to pull in a single direction. This state is detected by vSM and sends a sign to the MDPS to use directing help to counter this force. The pull is countered by vSM and mechanically supplies counter steering. VSM responds the exact same way during rapid cornering or abrupt lane changes.
All Velosters attribute six airbags--including dual front, front seat-mounted side-impact, and front and back side curtain airbags. Velosters additionally has a state of the art braking bundle.
