2018 Hyundai Veloster?


That's kind of a strange one. Rather unexpected.
I wasn't sure the Veloster would ever see a second generation.
I actually like it. but don't see that many around. So I assumed it wasn't selling that well.

Actually, they sold 24 245 in the US last year. And so far, over 28 000 this year.
Which is not bad at all for such a "niche" model.

So I guess we will see the next one over here.

I have to say, that spy shot above (Sent to me by a rider in Europe) does look a bit strange.
Especially the lights.
But, who knows.....

I'm happy to see it live on! It seemed to be more successful than the Elantra Coupe. I like the look of those tail lights. Almost like it will have "horns."

I didn't think this would survive after the first generation either. This looks heavily based on the Hyundai Enduro Concept.

Rumor is that it has moved to the larger Elantra/i30 platform and the silhouette is actually being teased as a third body style to the upcoming i30 lineup (i30 coupe?) It would make sense to continue it here, especially if it has grown to at least absorb some of the 4-cylinder Genesis Coupe market.

I am hoping it gets the "N" treatment and handles like it looks this time around.
