Hopefully this will make Honda put some pants on and do the CR-Z the right way! *fingers crossed*
BTW, is that a hole in the hood? Those lines are screwing with me o.O

I saw the concept? at the Melbourne Motorshow. I saw the 2 doors on one side and thought oh I thought it was going to be a 2 door? Then walking back past from the other direction I saw that it only had one door on the other side!
It was a 3 door (Not including the hatch).

I almost got a chance to test drive one of the few JD Power and Associates are using for R&D (The regular one, not the turbo or anything fancy), but they chose 5 other people and i wasn't included.. I made it to the final few applicants but i guess they didnt go with me because i'm only 19 xD

I wish WRC would make Manufacturer's offer similar versions to their WRC cars if they want to compete. For the US the closest we get is an AWD Mini Cooper Countryman. Ford is never going to offer AWD with their Fiesta and Hyundai so far has no plans for AWD in the Veloster.

This is probably what you are talking about, but not probably what you would want to drive...

Next to the ND Miata, this is my highest priority cross-shop for the FT-86. This goes the opposite direction from a performance car, but it seems to be quirky and fun enough to consider. I think that says a lot for Hyundai. FWD and a glass roof aren't going to please any purists, but I think it does a lot of things right. Only the test drive will tell for sure.

This seems to be the video of a test drive of the veloster...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU5Dr...e_gdata_player

If you look at the video you can see that it goes from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 100 kmh in the video) in 9 sec... I don't think that thing has 208 hp it looks more like 160 ish.

What do you guys think?

That's the N/A version. I believe the Turbo version is targeted for later in 2012 as a 2013 model.

Here you can see that the mule or whatever you want to call it is using a turbocharged engine.

Edit: funny video!

If the one in the video is the turbo version. It is still too slow for 208 hp and 2600 pounds.

That video of the acceleration definitely looks like the standard 138hp with the DCT.

The turbocharged version is further off than the FRS, they don't have cockpit test drive videos yet.

It certainly does a lot of things better than the other subcompacts, good power, 6spd, decent body design. Although it is within 50lbs of the CR-Z base model.

Respectable for the size to be sure.

The engine sounds good to me. Obviously the straight line performance isn't great but the turbo model will improve that. I would like to test drive it to decide if I like the performance.

Hyundai has priced the Veloster

$17,300 to $18,550.

http://www.leftlanenews.com/hyundai-veloster.html

"Veloster pricing will start at $17,300 for the six-speed model while the dual clutch version will carry a base price of $18,550. Both prices do not include a $760 destination charge.

Two option packages, both priced at $2,000, will be available on the 2012 Veloster. The Style Package upgrades the Velosterís look and overall appeal with added features like 18-inch wheels, fog lights a a premium audio system. The Tech Package, which is only available in tandem with the Style Package, includes unique 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights and a navigation system."

Test drove the Veloster at this weekend's OC Auto Show in Anaheim. It's smooth, zippy, and has higher quality interior materials than any Scion. Back seat had plenty of space, and there's no shitty hump in the floor for your passengers to climb over. The 3rd door is pretty cool, and is ample enough for an adult who is shorter than 6ft. Trunk space is decent enough to fit groceries. The ride height is pretty nice for stock (it looks like a lowered car). The panoramic sunroof is really nice, because it's actually a roof, as opposed to a flimsy flip floppy piece of leather that you pull back. You actually press a button and the roof slides back, like in my Honda Prelude. The glass itself goes pretty far back too, so it's great for evening drives. The front doors have funny handles that are really useful for closing your door. Also, near your kneecaps is a handle, as opposed to what we're used to (the handle that you'd have to raise your arm to grasp.) The Style Package is the best bang for buck. Noone really needs backup cams/navigation/auto headlights/etc.

**This car is definitely my alternative to the FT/FRS/BRZ because the Scion lady said that it'll be around $25k + $2000 for tax/title/license/etc., which is too much for me. The Veloster will come out to be around 22ish OTD, I think.

Pretty cool car, for a Hyundai. They're stepping up their game, cuz all the cars I saw at the show (Sonata, Elantra, Genesis R Spec, and even the Tuscon looked really cool). Unlike the American car companies, Hyundai is copying the right designs lol.

when i sat in the back i thought it was cramped. and the 3rd door is kinda small too. the worst part of the car is the stupid rear window. like the CR-Z its split and i cant imagine how annoying it would be to live with... that said, i cant wait to see what the turbo version will be like!
