The 1.6 dual VVT engine is not even weak. It is good enough to propel the Forte 1.6 to 100km/h in 11.5s with its older single VVT 1.6 Gamma whereas Elantra could get to 100km/h in 11.2s with newer dual VVT 1.6 gamma.
The Veloster 1.6, heard that it is based on the smaller new Accent platform should be 100kg lighter and could get better acceleration than the Elantra 1.6. Veloster launching in 30 November? Sure or not. The price 119,000 for manual and Auto about 123,000 and 133,000 seems bit pricey, better bring in the new i30 coupe instead powered by 1.8L.
U got to joking ! CRZ with less HP can achieved 0-100km/h in 9.7sec even much heavier Proton
Preve can achieved 0-100km/h in 9.6 sec.
Veloster with Gamma 1.6 merely get 10.3sec.
FYI Veloster is base on 4th gen Accent platform, yes the Accent launched few year back but never reached our market.
They can bring in Hwontai rocket if they want, without Dirt Cheap price tag, they can forget about selling in healthy number.
As usual if u want a cheaper Hwontai just wait & see like what happen to Avante.
