What it need is awd. That will make up for it.
Were you on something when you test drove this car? Because, the Veloster Turbo has virtually NO turbo lag. It has a 1.6L engine with a very small turbo, and little to no turbo lag has been a high point of the car for pretty much anyone who's driven one (when not on drugs).

I've had my Veloster Turbo for about a month now and I love it. Sure it's not close to being as fast as a WRX or STi, but it's a great econo-performer and an awesome DD for driving 80+ miles a day which is what I do.
