Much talk being of the hatch-cum-coupe styling with two doors on the passenger side, only one on the driver's side. Veloster has taken on more Hyundai's fluidic sculpture styling with a distinctive grey grille surround and 18-inch alloy wheels in a choice of two new styles, both shod with sporty 225/40 R18 tyres.

Enigine and Transmission

The veloster is held backby a naturally aspirated four-cylider power by Hyundai's direct-injection 1.6-litre Gamma engine which is naturally aspirated or turbocharged form. Power and torque figures for both engine types are unchanged. The engine churns out the power of 150kW at 6000rpm and 265Nm of torque at 1750-4500rpm. The engine is mated to a smooth shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering mounted paddel shifters and also there is an option for six-speed manual transmission with same power.


Up-to-date connectivity comes courtesy of a 7-inch LCD touchscreen displaying satellite navigation, CD player, MP3 input and MapCare. Rear-view camera and reverse parking sensors are standard in Veloster.


The safety features includes six airbags, full length curtains offer passive protection for occupants, electronic stability control including, traction control, anti-lock braking system, electronic brake force distribution, bake assist, vehicle stability management and hill-start assist control aim to keep the car out of the trouble in the first place.


The expectation of comfort level in the sports car is a little bit low. But the interior quality feels good and the Veloster also adopts Hyundai's driver-adjustable three-mode flex steer system. Climatronic and infotainment system make the drive through city and cruising through highways effortless.
