Hyundai has confirmed production of a sub-£20k cheaper version of the new Veloster Turbo.
The Veloster Turbo SE, currently the only trim available, goes on sale next week, from £21,995. Hyundai sources have told us that an entry-level model will be available by early 2013, however.
The cheapest Veloster Turbo is expected to cost less than £20,000 when it goes on sale early next year, and will include less standard kit and more optional extras.
Equipment such as the media pack, which includes satellite-navigation, is likely to become a cost option, although sources suggest leather upholstery is expected to remain.
Hyundai hopes a sub-£20,000 list price will lure potential customers away from the Veloster’s closest rivals - the Vauxhall Astra GTC and Volkswagen Scirocco.
Entry-level Hyundai Veloster is expected to cost less than £20,000 when it goes on sale in early 2013.
A more competitive price tag means the turbocharged version will be available for similar money to the standard car, with prices for the Veloster Sport starting at £20,500.
