2012 Hyundai Veloster



It looks like the production model could end up pretty close to the concept we saw back in 2007. (Red car)
I guess everyone will have a small sporty coupe now.

But unlike most of the other new models from Toyota/Subaru, Nissan and Mazda, the Veloster will be FWD.
So it will compete more with the Scion Tc and the Honda CR-Z.
The Veloster will be powered by a version of Hyundai's 2.0 Liter engine.

Lol just the other day i was wondering about this car and why we havent seen any prototypes of it running around, and here uncle Vince comes thru for us once again !

it does not need 2.0 Liter engine. NA 1.6 GDI is said to offer 145 hp, turbo version is said to feature 175 or even 220 hp in different iterations. If you go for a light, inexpensive, fuel efficient sporty car, NA 1.6 is best possible choice. Low weight is vital.

I think my next car might be Korean. I like this car and it seems to be smaller than a Tc which is perfect for me. The CRZ is kinda bad ass and it's hybrid, so we'll just have to see how they both fare in a comparison. The doors look smallish. I hope it has super convenient 'suicide' doors!!!

Looks like Hyundai's winning streak about to come to a quick end.
