Do you crave a Hyundai Veloster Sport 1.6 GDi more than Olympians want medals?
Do you crave a Hyundai Veloster Sport 1.6 GDi more than Olympians want medals? If so, check-out its manufacturer's personal contract purchase plan. Terms include a £6,595.25 deposit, of which Hyundai pays £1,500. This is followed by thirty-six monthly payments of £239. Throughout this period, motorists have a gold medal mileage allowance of 10,000 per-annum. At the end of the contract there are three options. One, pay the £7,182.50 purchase fee to own the vehicle outright. This – with the other charges – totals £22,381.75. Option two is to return the Veloster like a fake bronze medal. There should be nothing further to pay, subject to any mileage excess charges and condition. Or three, part exchange for a new car. Tough choice, but who could bare part with this three-door beauty?And yes, I mean “three” door. Why? Because the Hyundai Veloster has one entrance on the right and two on the left. So, is it really a two-door with a bonus appendage or a four- door lacking a hole? Tough to know. Either way, the Veloster Sport 1.6 GDi sends 138bhp through six-speed manual transmission to its front wheels. It, therefore, hits 62mph in 9.7 seconds. That is not particularly fast, but the Veloster has never claimed to be hard-core. It is – in my view – for motorists who want the style and status of a sporty looking coupé but without the aggressive handling, firm ride, and sharp power delivery. It succeeds on these terms. Further strengths include the five year warranty, spacious boot, and sensible running costs. It averages 43.4mpg, after all, leaving “failing” athletes enough cash to “buy” medals.
