( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is a strange new beast set loose by the upstart Korean car manufacturer in the automotive world. Unlike all cars in its class, or for the matter of fact all cars...it has one coupe like door on the driver's side, but two two sedan like doors on the passenger side. Even the name Veloster suggested a shortened version of "Velociraptor" meaning 'swift seizer' which is a crafty dinosaur that lived 75 million years ago. So will the Veloster going to swiftly seize sales from competing cars like the Ford Focus, the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf and Subaru Impreza? We think it will and if you want to find out why just watch this First Drive video review of the new 2012 Hyundai Veloster.
2012 Infiniti G25 AWD 0-60 MPH High Altitude Colorado Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti G25x drive could be the perfect
Colorado car with all weather all-wheel-drive and plenty of room for for
skiers and their gear. But how does do when the air gets thin at the Top of
Loveland Pass Colorado when we try to take it from 0-60 MPH.
2012 Hyundai Azera Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Hyundai Azera is all new. This
fill-sized sedan from Korea competes with cars like the Toyota Avalon, Ford
Taurus, Chrysler 300 and perhaps even the Lexus ES 350. For a base price
that starts around 30K, the 2012 Hyundai Azera offers a lot of value for
the money. The Azera can be had with a massive sunroof, it comes standard
with plenty of leg room in both the front and back and seats that are all
day road trip comfy. However unlike some of its rivals the Azera is front
wheel-drive and not the fastest and certainly not the sportiest car in the
segment. Check out this first drive review as we put the new and Sonota
like Azera to the test.
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Think of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe as a
Korean Muscle car. It has the classic American muscle car layout. A big
and powerful engine in the front that powers the rear wheels. But unlike
American muscle cars of old, the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe cam also
go around a corner. In fact the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a razor blade on
the track...carving corners and tearing up the race track. In another fun
and informative TFLcar review, we not only see how fast the 2013 Hyundai
Genesis Coupe is from 0-60 MPH at a mile above sea level, but we also rate
the car on the TFL recommendation scale of Buy it, Lease it, Rent it or

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan vs Jeep Wrangler 0-60 Off-Road Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2012 Jeep
Wrangler Rubicon can both venture off-road into the Colorado Rockies, but
one of these vehicles is certainly more capable of taking on the rough
stuff, and of course of these vehicles is better on the road, and of course
one of these cars is faster 0-60.
So which one is the better, faster, on-road and off-road. We put these
two cars to the test in the 0-60 Off-Road Mashup Review. Check out this
video. You mighty be surprised by the results.

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?
2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Driving Scenes (2012 detroit auto show)
HYUNDAI INJECTS STREET CREDIBILITY INTO VELOSTER WITH NEW turboCHARGED ENGINE
Ground Effects and Sport-Tuned Engine
DETROIT, Jan. 9, 2012 -- Hyundai Motor America today introduced the all-new
2013 Veloster turbo armed with 201 horsepower in a world
debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Veloster turbo is one bookend to Hyundai's turbocharged sports coupe line-up, paired with the
refreshed 274 horsepower, rear-wheel drive

Hyundai's 7/11 product initiative (seven new or redesigned models in the
next 11 months). Hyundai just completed its 24/7 version 2.0 product
initiative (seven new or redesigned models in 24 months), with the debut of
the 2012 Hyundai Azera.
TWIN-SCROLL turboCHARGER AND GDI
The 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI
four-cylinder engine in the 2013 Veloster turbo produces 201 horsepower at 6000 rpm and
195 lb-ft of torque from 1750 -- 4500 rpm with regular fuel. The Veloster
turbo is estimated to deliver 27 mpg
city and best-in-class 38 mpg highway for manual transmission models.
Hyundai's 1.6-liter Gamma turbocharged
engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger that when combined with the GDI
system, results in instantaneous power delivery. Twin-scroll turbochargers have traditionally been used on more
expensive high performance engines, but Hyundai has brought this technology
down its line-up from the Sonata 2.0T.
Twin-scroll turbocharger designs have
two Exhaust gas inlets divided by
split walls inside the turbine housing, with both gas passages controlled
by a waste-gate. A twin-scroll turbo
recovers even more energy from the Exhaust than a single-scroll turbocharger, thanks to a divided manifold. The
twin-scroll design separates the cylinders whose Exhaust gas pulses interfere with each other,
resulting in improved pressure distribution in the Exhaust ports and a more efficient delivery of
Exhaust gas energy to the turbocharger's turbine.
For example, at the start of the intake stroke of cylinder one and when
both the intake and Exhaust valves of
cylinder one are open (valve overlap period), cylinder three already starts
its Exhaust stroke with the Exhaust valve open. If the Exhaust passages of cylinder one and three were
connected, the Exhaust gas pulse from
cylinder three would increase the back pressure of cylinder one. This would
reduce the induction of the fresh air and increase the amount of hot
residual gases inside the cylinder. However, with the twin-scroll turbocharger setup, this interference is
The result of this superior scavenging effect from a twin-scroll design
leads to better pressure distribution in the Exhaust ports and a more efficient delivery of
Exhaust gas energy to the turbocharger's turbine. This in turn allows
greater valve overlap, resulting in an improved quality and quantity of the
air charge entering each cylinder. In fact, with more valve overlap, the
scavenging effect of the Exhaust flow
can literally draw more air in on the intake side. At the same time,
drawing out the last of the low-pressure Exhaust gases help pack each cylinder with a
denser and purer air charge. Maximum Boost from the turbocharger is 18 psi.
