2012 Hyundai Veloster Review

Overview
Performance and style go hand in hand in the all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster. Under the hood lies a spirited 1.6 liter Gasoline Direct Injection engine. Pair that with the 6-speed manual transmission for up to 40 miles per gallon highway. Prefer an automatic? Opt for the EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters. Completely modern and aggressively styled. It also pushes the outer limits of both space and technology. Stay connected 24/7 via Blue Link – Hyundai’s innovation in-car wireless connectivity system. Other high-tech features like hands free calling touch screen navigation and XM Satellite Radio with NavTraffic keep you entertained informed and in control. Even our take on safety borders the extreme. Six airbags with a Front Occupant Classification System high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management system are all standard so you can feel confident behind the wheel. Style substance and all the right connections. It’s the all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster.
