New 2017 Hyundai Veloster Release Date, Specs & Info

b28ej87c

Although lacking in driving refinement, the new 2017 Hyundai Veloster offers lots of value for the money including a distinctive styling, fuel economy, and tons of standard features. The Hyundai Veloster release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017, at least for the USA market.

At first blush, the Veloster appears to fit perfectly into the compact hatchback in terms of fuel economy and value. However, its driving experience may inadvertently leave you wanting. On the better side, though, the Veloster offers substantial appealing features such as fast-response infotainment screen, impressive fuel economy hovering around the 30 mpg mark/combined, a unique three-door body style, and a smorgasbord of accessories.

2017 Hyundai Veloster front angle, headlights and grille

The 2017 Hyundai Veloster interior hosts a number of standard features such as a rearview camera, cruise control, and satellite and HD radio. But even so, the Veloster lacks an engaging and exciting driving quality relative to what the competition offers. Some of the cons include a slow to respond engine, lacks a sporty appeal, and its ride quality is noisy and harsh.

As such, it’d be prudent to check out what the segment offers. One of our favorites in this class include the Ford Fiesta RS, the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Alltrack, and the Mazda 3. The 2017 Volkswagen SportWagen Alltrack price starts from $35,000 and for that amount you get a sophisticated all-terrain capability, distinctive visual upgrades, bespoke alloy wheels, flamboyant interior design and appointment, spacious interior, and a boatload of standard features. The 2017 SportWagen Alltrack USA release date will probably take place sometime before this fall as a 2017 year model.

The 2017 Ford Fiesta RS price starts from $27,500 and, just like the Ford Focus RS, will come with race-inspired features like a revised shifter, alloy sports pedals, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and Recaro sports seats.

2017 Acura TLX – Release Date, Specs & Info

For 2017, the new Acura TLX is yet again going to grace our dealerships with an extensive list of added features and technologies. The TLX is long known for its spacious and luxurious interior and the same is true for the new model. Additionally, it offers a hush interior, boatload of features, responsive handling and steering, and a generous rear legroom. The only downsides available after a thorough nitpicking include a middling performance, subpar acceleration and braking, distracting dual-screen infotainment system, and questionable fuel economy ratings. The Acura TLX release date should be expected sometime in the first quarter of 2017. 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality=90

Riding on the same platform as the Honda Accord, the new Acura TLX 2017 cruises into dealerships essentially on the same scouting report as before. With 109.3” of wheelbase, slightly reduced length, and improved width, the new model, relative to the previous model it is replacing, offers a more athletic stance.

2017 Acura TLX exterior, silver metallic color, taillights and tailpipe

There are a number of upgrades present on the newest TLX in order to improve its appeal as a luxury-badged vehicle. Being an Acura means the new TLX is well-rounded, nicely furnished and offers plenty of value. In fact, this is the best you can get in its price range. Comparably equipped European models are significantly costly, and they also tend to depreciate quickly. The TLX is arguably the best value you can get in this segment, and can save you loads of bucks now and in the future.

2017 Acura TLX exterior, front view, headlights and grille

True, the Acura TLX 2017 may not be the fastest vehicle in the segment, or even the most fuel efficient. Most folks buy because of its marque, which means you get all the luxury trappings of a luxury sedan without breaking the bank. In the engine bay, it comes with two engines: a 3.5L V6 and a 2.4L inline-4. The inline-4 whips up a cool 206 hp and 182 pounds of torque, while the latter provides more oomph rated at 290 horsepower and 267 pounds of torque.

2017 Acura TLX exterior, side view, alloy wheels

There is no doubt that the 2017 Aura TLX specs fall short relative to what its rivals offer, especially those that offer turbo- or supercharged six-cylinder engines. As opposes to pedal-to-the-metal theatrics, these rivals offer a quick burst of speed whenever called upon to do so. The fuel economy ratings posted by the new model are also wanting, at least according to various preliminary tests done.
