2012 Hyundai Veloster 6-Speed Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Review
Today viewers, you are witnessing the birth of a new chapter in small car
design, with the introduction of this: the all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster.
While most might say it's just a new body on an old platform, that is where
you're wrong. It's been fitted with some of Hyundai's newest technology,
and styling cues that would boggle the mind!
It brings a new type of body style to our world as well, now known as a 3
door coupe, which is wierd since most coupes are 2 door's. However, with
the Veloster, it incorporates 2 doors into one side of the vehicle, and
only 1 on the driver's side.
It's powered by an all new 1.6L GDi (Gas Direct Injection) I-4 with D-CVVT
(Dual Continuous Variable Valve Timing) which makes 138 hp and 123 lb/ft of
torque. The engine is a bit disapointing since it's pretty much the same as
the new Kia Soul. On that same front however, it does now put it in the 40
MPG club, along with the Elantra, Sonata Hybrid, and Accent. So it's really
the best of all worlds. You get all the looks of a sports car, with the
fuel efficiency of a compact.

That's decent HP from a 1.6L but it's just too weak of an engine for this
car. Not fast or peppy by any means. I dislike the rear end which IMO
looks half baked, rear seat entry is just terrible aside from the awful
legroom, & I found the front seats uncomfortable.
I will admit that the car is an eye catcher, but it really does fall short
of all the hype . Best waiting for the turbo version coming soon which would make the car
tolerable in some form, just not in this ugly color lol.
Update!! As of 10/13/2012, I had the opportunity to drive a Veloster & I
was extremely unimpressed. It had the most obvious economy car ride, the
lightest & most lifeless steering, the driver seat was too firm to be comfy
after 15 mins, the Dual Clutch Automated Manual Gearbox was on the lazy
side, & the entry 1.6L engine certainly doesn't provide enough pep to fit
the car's attitude. Its an interesting & eye catching car to look at but
thats where it ends. It's not a refined, fun, or spirited car to drive. The
question now is, has Hyundai rectified any of the above noted shortcomings
with the turbo version?
