More pictures of the Hyundai Veloster





Sure, it doesn't look 100% great from every angle, but it is one of the most original cars I have seen in years.
Plus, the new 1.6 Liter with a 6 speed manual does sound like fun.

At least, they are trying something new.

It better have a rear view camera, because rear visibility ain't there....

Smells like Renault Megane Coupé from the rear.

The first turd they've done in awhile. That is exterior is just steamy mess.

I know the Hyundai fanboys are likely wetting their pants right now...personally, I'm NOT a fan of the current design language (I DO think the Kia language is pretty awesome); personal opinion I guess.

However, that back end - while attractive, will be b-r-u-t-a-l to see out of.

I'd love to see Kia's interpretation of this.

A true Honda CR-X (with back seats).

I found it interesting that this car weighs 500lbs less than the Scion xB.

I love the Veloster.

They need to add a turbo motor to it with around 180-200HP and it will 100% be my next vehicle!

I give them credit for trying something different but this looks like Miss Piggy and Kermit finally had a baby!

I Like it!
And I bet many will!

Different and aggressive.

Will sell!

They ruined the ass, those sculpted ends on the rear hatch looks awefull and the tail lamps look very cartoonish ! it reminds me of whales eyes, like when the cameraman is underwater and the whale slowly open his eye and looks into the camera ! there designers arent quite there yet like kia is ! the elantra, while everyone just loves it to death, has some pretty wierd/funky lines on it and the sonota looks like and elephant sat on the hood and squished it too much, the sonota hyrbid looks alot better in person and on the road, seen a ton of them here in san diego where hyuandai has offices here.

I HATE Hyundai after endless nightmares and will never buy one again. But I have to say, that this is a really cool design.

I think it is the most original looking vehicle I've seen in quite a long time. I would'nt buy one, since it's not what I'm looking for, but I can see Hyundai selling A LOT of these. Scions always kinda made me laugh because even though it was marketed towards younger customers, I've always seen seniors driving around in them. I can see a lot of late teen and twenty-somethings buying this and customizing this..... if they have the money.

It is definitely different in terms of design and style. Good for someone who isn't afraid to stand out from the crowd. From what I can see, the interior dash seems to look pretty good too; very clean and modern.

Agree with previous poster, very french.

Well, I think it's pretty cool. Too "young" for me but the teens and twenty somethings will get it.
It's funny. Everytime they say some Hyundai won't sell; it sells more than they think it will. The Equus sold well, the Genesis did too, the Sonata sold more than expected. I would count this out at all.

It's like Walmart, people would rather go to Target, but, can't pass up their prices.
