BUZZ: This truly unique sports car is dripping with style and is a gas to zip around in. If you’re interested in the Veloster, this year’s turbo is the one to watch. The twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-litre engine adds the necessary punch (201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm) to make this car heavy on both style and substance. It’s a bonus that the extra power doesn’t take away from the base model’s surprising fuel-efficiency. With its exotic look, exciting performance and sneaky value, there’s nothing else like it.
