( 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 Buick Verano Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Buick Verano is based in large part on the European Opel Astra. But if you were to look at the two cars side-by-side you'd have a hard time telling that they are cousins...perhaps distant cousins. The American Verano gets a large dose of Buick's newest DNA to keep a strong family resemblance to the Regal and LaCrosse...both inside and out. The Verano's 2.4-liter Ecotec engine cranks out a humble 180 horsepower which is better for economy than performance getting over 30 MPG on the Highway. The Verano drives like a quiet German sedan and that's because under the skin it really is a quest sedan. While you can take the Astra out of Germany...you can't take the distinctly Germanic ride and handling out of the Verano.

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.
Hyundai Veloster vs Subaru Impreza Mashup Drag Race
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Hyundai Veloster and the 2012 Subaru Impreza compete against each other on the showroom floor. But we at TFLcar bought it would be more fun to see them compete against each other in a drag race. The all new Subaru Impreza has more power, all-wheel-drive and a CVT while the all new Hyundai Veloster has a six speed stick a little bit less power and weight. So which one of these two is faster in a straight line? Check out another fun TFLcar Mashup where we pit two cars against each other to find out.
2012 Dodge Durango Crew AWD Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Dodge Durango Crew AWD is a full-sized SUV that competes with other large American SUVs like the Ford Explorer and the Chevy Traverse. The newly redesigned Durango is based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee but unlike the Jeep the Durango will seat 7 people. It can be had with both a V6 and of course Chrysler's more powerful HEMI V8.
This week Dave reviews the 2012 Dodge Durango Crew AWD with V6 to see if it is up to taking on the other big boys from GM and Ford.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Driving Scenes (2012 detroit auto show)
HYUNDAI INJECTS STREET CREDIBILITY INTO VELOSTER WITH NEW turboCHARGED ENGINE
201 horsepower, 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 2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0T (turbo) also debuting at the show today.
"The turbo further broadens Veloster's hero role in the Hyundai line-up to attract our next generation of buyers," said Mike O'Brien, vice president, product and corporate planning, Hyundai Motor America. "It's powerful, high-tech and fuel-efficient, attributes which we think make Veloster turbo the ultimate innovation in the sport coupe segment."
The 2013 Veloster turbo arrives in the Summer of 2012, facing off against worthy competitors such as the Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic Si and Mini Cooper/Clubman S with a better power-to-weight ratio than all of them, and a unique sport-tuned steering and suspension hardware set.

Veloster turbo is the first vehicle in 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 TECHNOLOGY
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 minimized.
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.

Veloster is the sixth vehicle in Hyundai's 24/7 version 2.0 product initiative (seven new models in 24 months), on the heels of the all-new Tucson, Sonata, Equus, Elantra and the all-new Accent. The 2012 Veloster poses some intriguing questions:
Why can't a sporty coupe get 40 miles per gallon?
Why can't a car have the same connectivity as portable electronic devices?
Why does coupe design dictate only two doors?
Why can't an affordable coupe offer premium features?
Why can't Hyundai have two coupes -- a playful front-wheel drive model targeting the likes of Mini Cooper and Scion tC to complement the sport-focused, rear-wheel drive Genesis Coupe?
Veloster's unique design takes inspiration from a high-performance sport bike. Veloster has distinctive black A-pillars that give the glass a motorcycle helmet visor appearance. In the front is an aggressive form of Hyundai's signature hexagonal front grille, hood scoop detailing, and unique Hyundai-signature LED position lights. Optional packages add a chrome grille surround, piano black highlights, fog lights, and a massive panoramic sunroof.
In profile the Veloster features "Fluidic Sculpture" character lines, muscular wheel arches, bodycolor door handles and mirrors, and wraparound headlights and taillights. Veloster comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels and offers two types of 18-inch wheels. The top-of-the-line 18-inch wheel comes with painted inserts, a segment first.
Veloster's dynamic rear design has a distinctive glass hatch, dual centered chrome Exhaust tips and black lower fascia that complements the assertive front fascia.
Inside, the center stack and controls resemble a sport bike fuel tank and incorporate an available push-button starter. The air vents are inspired by motorcycle tailpipes, while the floor console mirrors the seat of a bike. Metallic accents abound throughout the interior. Alloy pedals and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are also available.
THE THIRD DOOR
Veloster combines the style of a coupe and the functionality of a hatchback, while also incorporating an additional passenger-side door. In the past, some coupes have used smaller rear-hinged access doors. These coupes have always been compromised by having to open the driver-side door before the rear door could be opened, proving to be inconvenient for both the driver and passenger, and extremely difficult to operate in tight parking lot situations. Hyundai's fresh take here implements a conventionally hinged door on the passenger side of the Veloster, providing safe and ready access to the surprisingly spacious rear seats. The passenger-side rear door handle is hidden to maintain the coupe design.
The Hyundai Veloster review
Hyundai let the designers loose and this is what they came back with. The Veloster is Hyundai's attempt at a sporty town car, let's see what Bob thinks..

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 Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/veloster/2013/ When the Hyundai Veloster was released in 2011 many enthusiasts were excited to see a fantastic looking and affordable sport compact car that would give the other hot hatchbacks in the segment a run for their money. The let down came when the hood was opened to reveal a 138 horsepower 1.6 liter naturally aspirated engine that was more suited for fuel efficiency rather that for performance. Well now you can have your cake with the release of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo! The base price on the turbo model is $21,950.
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo is powered by a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine based on the standard Veloster Gamma GDi engine. The turbo motor has a lower compression ratio at 9.5:1 to handle the added Boost pressure. The gasoline direct injection (GDi) motor also sports Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT). Power output for the turbo engine is 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque which puts the Veloster turbo right in the middle of the sport compact car pack. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual but there is also is 6-speed automatic version with paddle shifters. The manual is the more fuel efficient transmission at 26 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway.
On the outside the Hyundai Veloster turbo model is distinguishes itself from the regular model in a few ways. For started, the Veloster turbo has a huge wide-mouth front grille opening to let in vast amounts of cool air. There is also a lower lip spoiler on the turbo model. Another cool feature found on the turbo-only model are the LED lights front and back. The front projector headlights sport LED daytime running light accents which are normally reserved for high end luxury vehicles. The wheels on the Hyundai Veloster turbo are 18-inch alloy units that combine both a matte and chrome finish. The limited edition matte gray pain job will set you back an additional $800, but the finished result is well worth it. The standard non-turbo Veloster features squared Exhaust tips while the turbo model has rounded ones.
The 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo can be considered one of the hottest new hatchbacks on the market. Not only does the Veloster turbo have over 200 horsepower, but this car can get up to 38 MPG on the highway. The 2013 Veloster turbo looks great and comes packed with tons of standard features.

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.
