Fatherhood offers the opportunity to no longer feel compelled to be cool or fashionable. My Brooklyn neighborhood seems to be split between dads who embrace this freedom and those who consider their kids another expensive accessory. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally is that dad still trying hard to be cool.
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo has managed to do something no other Hyundai hatch ever built has done: make people give a crap about it. For the week I had the car, at least a half-dozen people commented on it. To get that sort of response with, say, an Elantra, you'd have to set the thing on fire and cover it in…
Remember when we thought that the Veloster Turbo would run $1,600 more than the base model? It turns out that $1,600 only covers the cost of the engine upgrade. The actual starting price will be $22,725.
