Motors Review: Hyundai Veloster

The Hyundai Veloster is hoping to give you two things for the price of one.

It is looking to be sports car and at the same time cater for those wanting a little more space.
Available as a Veloster and Veloster Sport – Hyundai may have come up with something quite unique.
Whilst I agree trying to mix the two might be difficult it is not impossible.
Let us first look at how this vehicle does as a sports car.
Veloster is powered by a highly efficient 1.6-litre four-cylinder GDi petrol engine, generating 140 PS, driving the front wheels via the standard six-speed manual gearbox or Hyundai’s first dual-clutch transmission (DCT), which is available as an option.
The Veloster Sport has from 18-inch alloy wheels with colour inserts, leather upholstery with heated front seats, a panoramic glass sunroof with tilt and slide function, cruise control, keyless entry with engine start/stop button and sporty alloy pedals.
Whilst the pick-up on this was good I was expecting something more from the Veloster as it looks and feels as it could be faster.
Those looking for a fabulous sound system might find the Veloster exceeds your expectations.
By putting an extra door in and giving us a decent sized boot Hyundai are, as a mentioned attempting to please us on two fronts.
It is a nice touch and doesn’t take away from the fact this remains a coupe.
This pack is priced at £1,100, while for an additional £300 red leather seat upholstery and front door trim panels can be specified.
The Veloster will set you back £17,995. As an option on the Sport derivative, the Media Pack combines touch screen satellite navigation with a rear view parking camera, premium audio with eight speakers (including a subwoofer), and an uprated amplifier.
