Every now and then a car is thrown that forces you to take a double hit. The Hyundai Veloster sports car definitely falls into this impressive category. Look carefully … on the one hand, this style is like a coupe, and on the other, a two-door sport hatch. Although it may seem strange, Hyundai does more than make this ridiculously different design combo work. In fact, one wonders why the other automaker did not think about it before.
Hyundai Veloster was first introduced to the world as a prototype at the 2007 Seoul Auto Show and as a final version at the Detroit Auto Show. Although not yet available in South Africa, it is rumored that the fashionable compact will head to our coasts in the near future. With the launch of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai hoped to fill the void left by Tiburon, which had failed several years ago, and, judging by the general opinion of the public, this proved to be even more popular.
Perfect for modern target market
According to Hyundai, the Veloster was “designed for anyone”, a description that is perfect for its young and modern target market. Its unusual 1 + 2 asymmetric door concept provides the perfect combination of practicality and individuality. Of course, this is not for everyone, but for many it is a strong personal statement that makes sense. This is a cross in every sense of the word, combining the best you can get from the hatch and the coupe.
The designers made the impossible not only possible with their unique door configuration, but also improved it. The aerodynamic design of the Veloster is evident in every detail. From the front, you will find a sturdy bumper with fog lights with a low set of integrated fog lights, a distinctive hexagonal grille and stylish sports vents on the bonnet. The interior is also dynamic thanks to its sporty leather steering wheel and gear lever, as well as the electric instrument panel with double shank and the central fascia that it has incorporated.
Under the hood, the Hyundai Veloster hides a lightweight but rigid 1.6-liter GDI engine that provides power on demand, flexible handling and silent operation. It also offers the option between a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Other intelligent features that will make your Veloster operation even safer include electric stability management, vehicle stability management, braking assistance, traction control and parking assistance in the rear. In addition, its multimedia entertainment system in a car with a 7-inch LCD touch screen allows you to connect almost any device and control it from the steering wheel.
