What is the Hyundai Veloster Turbo’s top speed?

My uncle Gill mercilessly mocks me and my Hyundai Veloster Turbo—he even asked me if I could drive it on the highway. He’s coming over for Sunday dinner, and I’d like to be armed with some facts about my impressive little hatchback. What is the Hyundai Veloster Turbo’s top speed?

Tell your uncle Gill that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo can kick it—the Veloster’s top speed is an incredible 155 miles per hour. And that’s not all!
Not only does the Veloster Turbo pass the century-and-a-half mark, it goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just under six seconds, which is very quick for a hatchback. Your Veloster Turbo sports a 1.6 L turbocharged, inline 4 cylinder engine, which pumps out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This turbocharged power plant can be mated with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The Veloster Turbo gets 30 miles per gallon combined, and offers athletic handling and is a ball of fun to drive. Take that, uncle Gill!
