All-New 2012 Veloster
The X and Wow Factor
Introducing the entirely new Veloster, the newest addition to Hyundai’s line-up of category busting vehicles. Strikingly different than any car on the road, the three-door coupe is that rare breed of truly unique. But what really sets the Veloster apart is innovation. A third door for easy rear-seat access, standard seven-inch touch-screen display, and a 1.6-litre gasoline direct-injection four-cylinder engine mated to Hyundai's first EcoShift Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Get ready to be wowed by the three-door sport coupe that’s fun to drive, nice to look at, and smart to own. Kick boring to the curb.
3 Doors and 1 Iconic Design
Veloster combines the style of a coupe with the functionality of a hatchback but with an added feature: a third door. This makes getting in and out of the rear seat easy and hassle free. The unique look starts with Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design and takes inspiration from a high-performance sport bike. This creates stunning features such as the muscular wheel arches, hood scoop detailing, body colour door handles and mirrors, wrap-around taillights and headlights, distinctive rear glass hatch and the ultra cool dual centered chrome exhaust tips. The Veloster can be summed up in one word: Iconic.
Let the sun shine in with Veloster’s available panoramic sunroof. It features a fixed glass roof section at the back and a traditional pop-up/slide section at front, with UV blocking all over.
The Veloster comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels and optional 18" 5-spoke alloys with painted inserts to give your ride a custom look.
The hidden rear door on the passenger side gives easy access to the rear seat. With no visible door handle, it maintains the sleek body lines of the Veloster.
Nothing says sporty like a centre exhaust. Reserved for some of the world’s finest supercars, on the Veloster it comes standard.

The Veloster’s interior is an extension of you.
