New for 2016, the Veloster Rally Edition leverages the street credibility established by the Turbo R-Spec model. It features a higher performance tune for the springs, dampers, and front stabilizer bar, for even more responsive and precise handling capabilities. Complementing these suspension tuning upgrades, RAYS lightweight alloy wheels have been fitted, reducing unsprung weight by five pounds per wheel for even better dynamic response and a distinctive sports appearance. The aero kit features carbon-fiber-look accent covers for a sporty appearance, with Rally Edition exterior badging. The Rally Edition is only available in an exclusive Matte Blue exterior color and black leather with blue-accented sport seats and only with the short-shifting B&M Racing Sport Shifter and 6-speed manual transmission. Finally, embroidered floormats round out the distinctive look of this special performance model.

In profile, the Veloster features “Fluidic Sculpture” character lines, muscular wheel arches, bodycolor door handles and mirrors, and wraparound headlights and taillights. Veloster’s dynamic rear design has a distinctive glass hatch and dual center-fascia chrome exhaust tips that complement the assertive front fascia.
