Hyundai Veloster

Saw the photos of the Veloster today. Its a front wheel driver but to me looks like a cross between the new Audi A1 and a Mazdaspeed 3. Might be another cheap fun car.

Found some pics of the production Veloster here http://www.apextuner.com

Well to be fair, this is the "Off-Topic Discussions > Other Vehicles & General Automotive Discussions" forum.

But on that note, I'm not impressed by the Veloster in any way.

The front and side isnt bad, but the back end is ugly, needs to be touched up and smoothed out some. Just too many curves etc.

I am going to go test drive one this week. I think I am done waiting for FRS MSRP.
A Yellow veloster with full option at $21580 is calling my name...

And then the weekend after you buy it, FRS MSRP gets released at $22,580 and you kick yourself in the balls.

neat concept, but the styling is a little too far out there.

call me oldschool but i like straight lines :/

modern cars, esp FWD ones have this whole "egg in a beater" thing going on.

I hope that will happen for you all.
I have to try that car for a while though. I love that yellow and all those modern features that come with the car at that price....
If FRS is still around in two years I may buy a FRS then.
But this site's "vs" thread is what first started my interest in Veloster.
It is funny how things happen.

Veloster even sounds like a car name from GTA....


And Huyndai/Kia do some really blatant design ripoffs from some of the bigger guys, but the Veloster is pretty original. It's kinda ridiculous, but original.

I checked one out yesterday. Didn't test drive it though. I like the interior. The rear hatch design with the dips and scoops, and the bucked teeth like dip in the front bumper are what bother me most. Beyond that, I think it's ok. Also, nobody seems to have commented on the 3-door design. -- single door on driver's side, but it has a front and rear door on passenger's side.



This seemed the most odd to me. I walked up to it thinking it was a 2 door hatch. Sat in the driver's seat, looked back, and that's when I saw the door handle for the rear passenger side. So I jumped out, examined the driver's side again, walked over to the passenger side, and quietly exclaimed, "wtf!"

That 3rd door is clever/useful. Growing up, a part of me always admired the CRX and this is the spiritual successor (btw the Gen Coupe is the spiritual successor to the 2+2 300ZX). I like what Hyundai is doing with this car and think it'll be a hit. Especially the turbo. Would probably be my top choice if I were shopping for a FWD daily driver.
