2012 Hyundai Veloster



Although there are still just illustrations, they give us a pretty good idea of the final production model.
We will only have to wait a few weeks to see pictures of the real thing anyway now…

This car seems really promising to me.
And maybe what the new Honda CR-Z could, or should have been.
It will be powered by a 1.6 Liter engine good for 140hp while getting at least 40MPG HWY.
A turbo version with 200hp is rumored for later.

Some prototypes have been spotted with a cool glass top. Which is not offered in the US version of the CR-Z.

Plus, not being a hybrid, it will also be cheaper.

I can’t wait to see the real thing…

  1. That back end looks pretty barfy. Visibility is probably like looking through a spy hole in a hotel door.

  2. Not 'quite' as sporty as the concept, but… A Whole Lot More Practical.

    Looks like another potential segment-leader from (the unstoppable) Hyundai group.

  3. Doesn't look like a sporty car and at least the CR-Z does. Also the CR-Z has probably still better combined mpg. So perhaps price is better and bit more power potentially but I think the back just look ugly/weird.

  4. I don't know why you're so gung-ho on Hyundai lately. This is just awful. Makes the CRZ look almost normal, and that's saying a lot.

  5. I actually like the rear of this car – it's the front I'm not a fan of. For the record, I also don't like the front of the Sonata or Tuscon…obviously a personal opinion because a lot of folks apparently like it.

    Regardless – I can't see how this is going to create buzz for them, nor how it will sell. Poor visibility, looks very small, and not very practical…*shrugs* maybe its me?

  6. I like it. Since Honda can't seem to build a decent successor to the CRX, Hyundai will have to do it. However I would much rather see the VW Scirocco in the US than this.
