New 3 Doors Hyundai Veloster 2012

Font size


The Hyundai Veloster is a compact sport coupe set to begin sales in the Summer of 2011. It was released on January 10, 2011, at the Detroit auto show, and will fill the void left when Hyundai discontinued the Tiburon after the 2008 model year.

Hyundai states the production model is to receive a direct-injected 1.6 liter 138 hp (103 kW), 123 lb·ft (167 N·m) (@ 4,850 rpm) torque, 4-cylinder engine. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard while a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) with paddle shifters is also available as an option. The DCT transmission is developed by Hyundai and is the first dual-clutch transmission from the company. The Veloster will achieve an estimated 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) fuel economy, but does not yet have an official EPA rating. For some markets like the Middle East, the car is offered without GDI making 128hp. A turbocharged version will be available later on.
The car includes 17 inch wheels and 4-wheel disc brakes as standard features. A turbocharged 1.6 Gamma GDI was introduced in the 2011 Seoul Motor Show. It generates 208 hp at 6,000 rpm with 195 ft-lbs of torque from 1,600-5,000 rpm. This engine will be available in 2012. The car is different from many competitors as it has one door on the driver side and two on the passenger side in U.S.-bound models. European models will have four regular doors. The Veloster will also use Hyundai's new BlueLink system, which is similar to OnStar used in GM vehicles, providing customers with automatic crash notification, vehicle diagnostics, etc. Pricing is expected to start around US$17,000.
