Hyundai Veloster


What is it?
Hyundai’s long-anticipated replacement of their much loved coupe has finally arrived in the shape
of a three door.

What is it like inside?
The interior is boldly styled and echoes the distinctiveness of the exterior. Finished with a modern
metallic-look it is elegant and poised. In addition there is lots of practicality, reasonable rear space
and a decent-sized boot.

What is it like to drive?
Powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine producing 103 kilowatts of power and 166 Newton metres of torque on the road the Veloster has sufficient performance and a slick gear box. While the ride is firm
it is comfortable whatever the surface.

What is it likely to cost?
The Veloster is priced at €25,495 so it compare very favourably with competitors. In addition fuel
economy is good at 6.5 litres per 100km for average combined consumption.

With the Veloster Hyundai builds on their reputation for good affordable coupes. The Veloster looks sensational, equipment levels are high and with a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty it is a very attractive package.
