Published by on Apr 28th, 2010, 2 Comments

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster Concept has evolved thoroughly since the first time it was showcased three years ago at the 2007 Seoul Motor Show. The hatchback variant that is headed to the production floor and will start selling next year, was spied (again) testing and the cameras managed to get a shot of the interior along with the heavily clad exterior that hardly revealed anything.

Despite the heavy camouflage, the lighting units the center-mounted exhaust and the sloping roofline were all evident. On the inside the spy images reveal a symmetrical dash with a prominent center stack. The 2012 Veloster features a Dimension audio system, heated seats, a push-button ignition, chrome door handles, a large LCD display and a smallish steering wheel.

Engine speculations for the Veloster include a naturally-aspirated 1.6L four-banger capable of churning 121hp and 155Nm of torque. A turbocharged variant will also be offered and that will render 175 horses. [via WCF]

Hyundai Veloster Coupe Spied in Cold Weather Testing

2012 Hyundai Veloster

The production ready Hyundai Veloster was expected to retain 70% of the styling traits from the Concept that first debuted at the 2007 Seoul Auto Show. The first spy shots of the Coupe during its cold weather testing reveal that Hyundai is well and truly close to the concept with its final design. The images reveal an exaggerated wheel arch with a steep windshield design joining the intersection with the roof.

A far cry from the concept design is the way the car tapers off into the sidesill. The rear is more heavily camouflaged but one can still mark the similarities between the taillight placement of the concept and the factory ready model. As far as the headlights are concerned, the triangular shaped design has been again picked from the concept. Another design trait picked from the concept but modified slightly are the centrally placed dual-exhaust pipes. Under the hood, the 2012 model which will be available later this year or in early 2011 will come with a 140 hp engine that will render 40mpg as per the speculations.

New Hyundai Coupe

Published by on Aug 11th, 2008, No Comments

Why I never enjoyed the Hyundai coupe is a mystery for me, because I’m fond with the coupes. For no special reason the shark looks never appealed to me, but things are about to change. The new Hyundai Coupe is going to be based on the Velostar concept (pictured below) gotten a few details from the new Renault Laguna and should be the same class as Toyota Celica. We’ll get to see the new Coupe next year (2009) at the German motorshow in Frankfurt. Do you like the way it looks now? Any big changes that can lead you to buying one?
