Gamma 1.6 liter turbocharged engine
The 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine produces 201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm (estimated) and 27.0 kg.m of torque from 1,500-4,500 rpm (estimated). Further, there is an over-boost function that raises peak torque output to 28 kg.m under maximum acceleration. Veloster Turbo is paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT). In addition, Veloster Turbo features Active Sound Design, which enhances intake and exhaust powertrain sound character inside the cabin for a more visceral driving experience, especially during spirited driving.
