Hyundai Veloster Turbo: 24 mpg city, 35 mpg highway (manual); 24/31 mpg (auto)
our foot-to-the-floor driving style yielded a not-very-impressive 25 mpg average
The 2014 Hyundai Veloster skirts the boundary between sporty, rakish hatchback and urban runabout, and provided you see it as that, it's one of the most fuel-efficient models you could get that packs in so much excitement.
The non-turbo Veloster is primed for good gas mileage, with either shift mode. It's rated at 27/37 mpg for the manual, or 27/35 mpg with the dual-clutch automatic.
Veloster Turbo models are less efficient, but manuals aren't as far off the mark as versions with a six-speed automatic. They're now rated by the EPA at 24/35 mpg (down from 26/38 mpg) with the manual shifter, and drop to 24/31 mpg (formerly 25/34 mpg) with the automatic. Because of the Turbo's high torque, Hyundai doesn't offer its efficient dual-clutch automatic on the more powerful Veloster.
We saw around 30 mpg over a six-month period with a base Veloster.
The Veloster gets up to 37 mpg on the highway, with Turbo versions scoring up to 35 mpg.
