2012 Hyundai Veloster

Korean automaker is ready to try again with its all-new former entry-level sport coupe 2012 Hyundai Veloster in the U.S.A. The Veloster is front drive, compact and sportyish, but the new car features a few significant differences.

Hyundai drew inspiration from sportbikes for the 2012 Hyundai Veloster’s body. A fresh interpretation of Hyundai’s now-familiar Fluidic Sculpture design language, is sharp-looking in person. While the exterior features more than handful of complex curves, from the cutout containing the standard LED running lamps to the lower bodyside door sculp.

2012 Hyundai Veloster combines the style of a coupe and the functionality of a hatchback, while also incorporating an additional passenger-side door. In the past, some coupes have used smaller rear-hinged access doors. These coupes have always been compromised by having to open the driver-side door before the rear door could be opened, proving to be inconvenient for both the driver and passenger, and extremely difficult to operate in tight parking lot situations.

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is equipped with a 138-horsepower 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine, which is expected to get up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway. The Veloster comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission. Hyundai said the dual-clutch automated transmission provides a 5-6 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over a traditional automatic and a 3-7 percent improvement in acceleration performance.

Exterior cues on the Veloster include black A-pillars “that give the glass a motorcycle helmet visor appearance,” said Hyundai in a statement. Options include a chrome grille surround, piano black highlights, foglights and a panoramic sunroof. The Veloster comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels; two types of 18-inch wheels are optional.
