With its sporty looks, outside-of-the-box design, and long list of standard features, driving a Hyundai Veloster will forever change your idea of driving excitement. Here’s a closer look at Hyundai’s brand new Veloster three-door hatchback:
- Distinctive Design
The bold design of the Hyundai Veloster is impossible to overlook. The Veloster’s frame is sculpted with sharp lines that extend from the aggressive front fascia to the curvy rear hatchback. There are three doors on the Veloster—a large door on the driver’s side, a small door for the front passenger, and another small door on the right side of the car for two rear passengers. This one-of-a-kind design gives the Veloster the flavor of the coupe and the functionality of a sedan. Hyundai extended the Veloster’s unique design to the interior too. Its aluminum trim, vertical air vents, and sport seats give the interior a sleek appearance.
- Athletic Handling
Hyundai’s 2012 Veloster is powered by a direct-injected 1.6-liter inline-4 engine that achieves 138 horsepower, which can be matched to a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic with shift paddles. If driving has become somewhat of a chore for you, then this car is an instant cure. The Veloster weighs a mere 2,600 pounds and comes with a suspension that provides both instant feedback during turns and comfortable ride quality.
- Outstanding Value
For a starting price of under $17,500, the 2012 Hyundai Veloster comes very well-equipped. Hyundai’s new Blue Link system, which gives drivers the ability to control many of the car’s features with voice-commands, will also send for emergency assistance in the event of a collision. Daytime LED lights, 17-inch wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker sound system with built-in Pandora internet radio and iPod input all come standard. The impressively fuel-efficient Veloster also achieves 40 mpg on the highway.
