2013 Hyundai Veloster
Inside, our designers filled Veloster's best-in-class interior volume with modern-day conveniences ideally suited for on-the-go lifestyles. Front and center is Blue Link,™ a suite of technologically advanced service, safety and convenience features that help to simplify your life-while plugging you into a unique driving experience tailored to your individual desires.
Bold. Unconventional. That was our starting point for the 2012 Veloster, a versatile 3-door coupe that reflects new thinking for the next generation of drivers. Our designers shaped Veloster with concept-car flair using an aggressive front grille and dual-scooped hood. Distinctive LED headlight accents. And flowing lines brought to life by bold colors.
Look closely as you walk around the passenger side, and you'll notice a hidden third door that eases backseat access. Then watch as the stylish inserts featured on available 18-inch alloy wheels grab your gaze. Ditto the unique rear glass hatch. Centered dual exhaust tips also make an immediate impression -one that announces Veloster's intention to zig where most other cars have zagged.
This fresh take continues under the hood, where a 1.6-liter engine powered by Gasoline Direct Injection delivers 138 horsepower and up to 40 mpg on the highway.1 The Veloster powerplant is paired with your choice of a six-speed manual transmission or another Hyundai's first: An EcoShift™ Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters that blends smooth shifting with lower fuel consumption compared to conventional automatic transmissions.
Forty miles per gallon. It's enough to make you feel exhilarated even before revving up Veloster's spirited engine. And reveling in the nimble way it handles as you run through the gears of a standard 6-speed manual transmission. Prefer an automatic? Veloster also offers an optional 6-speed EcoShift™ Dual Clutch Transmission that incorporates the latest technology for a smooth, highly-efficient pouring of power onto the pavement. You can also take control of the shifting yourself with rally-inspired paddle shifters located behind the steering wheel. Factor in sophisticated safety features like Vehicle Stability Management with a lightweight suspension that enhances ride comfort and controls body roll...and the only thing capable of stopping your fun will be the 4-wheel disc brakes, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist technologies that come standard on every Veloster we build.
