"The new Veloster keeps it weird, but thankfully the driving experience is not -- though it's also not all that unique. The outgoing car could never really be called genuinely sporty no matter what it looked like, and the new Turbo, numbers to pavement, doesn't drive any sportier (which shouldn't be a huge surprise, considering it's the same engine and, I'm told, a similar weight).
"What is nice about the new Veloster Turbo is the handling, which feels tight and sticky, though the steering feel, at least on my short amount of driving time, seemed to lack strong steering feel and predictability. But I wouldn't call the feedback bad.
"Handling is helped by the new Veloster's upgraded suspension, with some new aluminum parts at the front and rear, and a new multi-link independent rear suspension."
