2012 Hyundai Veloster in orange color

2012 Hyundai Veloster Reviews With an exterior design inspired by a high performance sport bike, the new Veloster is a sporty coupe that delivers an impressive 40 mpg and the same functionality as any hatchback coupe out there.

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is powered by an all-new Gamma 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, the smallest Hyundai engine to use Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI). Delivering an impressive 138 HP, the engine is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an all-new, six-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Inspired by a high-performance sport bike, the Hyundai Veloster features distinctive black A-pillars that give the glass a motorcycle helmet visor appearance, an aggressive signature hexagonal front grille, hood scoop detailing, and unique Hyundai-signature LED position lights. The rear gets dual centered chrome exhaust tips and a black lower fascia that complements the assertive front fascia. Hyundai also offers a sport-tuned electric power steering that adjusts instantly to changing driving conditions while improving fuel economy over a conventional steering system.

The Mini Cooper is powered by a 1.6 liter engine that delivers 121 HP. Priced from $18,275, the 2011 Scion tC is powered by a 2.5-liter in line four-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i that generates 180 HP.

The Hyundai Veloster is pitched at the same people who buy the Fiat 500, Mini, Honda CR-Z and perhaps even VW Golf.

Drive goes to the front wheels via either a six-speed manual or the optional six auto slots of Hyundai�s first dual-clutch transmission (with steering wheel shift paddles) which the company says is as fuel-efficient as the manual, claiming 5.9L/100km.

With stability control, six airbags and ABS with brake assist and brakeforce distribution, Hyundai hopes to get a five-star result when the Hyundai Veloster undergoes crash tests.

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is an all-new hatchback model.If you've been pining for a sporty-looking hatchback that is still passenger-friendly, the 2012 Hyundai Veloster may be just what you've been waiting for. Unlike the small access-style door found on the Mini Cooper Club man, the Hyundai Veloster third door is a normal, front-hinged door; the exterior door release has been disguised to help keep the coupe look intact.

The front-wheel-drive 2012 Hyundai Veloster will be powered by a 1.6-liter direct-injected in line-4 that's good for 138 horsepower. Hyundai is projecting a 40 mpg highway rating.
