2012 Hyundai Veloster Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 2K
2012 Hyundai Veloster It's packs 138 HP 1.6L DOHC 4 Cyl which is paired to a 6 speed auto (Dual Clutch Automated Manual or DSG ) My Fan page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Intechdude300/294626333932309 2theRedline fan page https://www.facebook.com/2Redline The new 2theRedlineLLC channel where all future tours ( except personal cars) will be posted http://www.youtube.com/user/2theRedlineLLC 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?
2012 Hyundai Veloster Review by Automotive Trends
http://automotivetrends.com The Veloster is the answer to Hyundai critics who, until recently, declared that the company could produce no original designs and instead took the lazy approach of borrowing several themes from other automakers and mixing them into one car, usually with dull results. Obviously that charge can't be leveled at the surprisingly original and pleasantly sporty Veloster. There's nothing out there with the same combination of concept car flair like the center Exhaust tips and functional enhancements like the second door on the passenger side. It's a look we were immediately won over by, but after a week of living with the sport coupe would we still be smitten? You'll have to watch our video review for that answer.

The guys see if the quirky Veloster is a worthwhile addition to the crowded world of entry-level cars. How does this three door oddity stack up against the Civics and Minis of the world? Paul and Todd seek out a canyon road to find out.
