The eagerly awaited Veloster coupe gives the automaker a budget-priced sporty coupe in the mold of the Tiburon, which taught a generation of young enthusiasts to love Hyundai.
Featuring the automaker’s first dual-clutch transmission — a six-speed — and a 138-horsepower 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine, the Veloster promises to deliver exciting performance along with 40 m.p.g. on the highway. Standard safety equipment includes six air bags and a stability control system that manages the electric power steering as well as the engine and brakes.
The sleek hatchback body provides a spacious 105.3 cubic feet of passenger and cargo room, more than the Honda CRZ, Mini Cooper or Scion tC. A rear door on the passenger side eases back-seat access. Source: Freep
