2012 Hyundai Veloster



We first saw the new 2012 Hyundai Veloster back at the Detroit Auto Show in January, but at the more recent New York Auto Show, Hyundai’s corporate planning chief Michael O’Brien gave us a much closer look at his company’s latest sports offering.

The Veloster arrives later this year with its hatchback full of unique, and potentially game-changing, features and functions. At the top of its list is a funky quartet of doors. Hyundai calls it a three-door vehicle, but the Veloster has four doors in all, counting the hatchback, the driver-side door, and the pair of doors on its passenger side.

Under the hood is a 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine that turns in 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to Hyundai’s first dual-clutch transmission in some versions. A six-speed manual also will be offered. The company predicts the Veloster will achieve a 40 mpg rating on the EPA highway fuel-economy test, but hasn't made clear if the manual-gearbox Veloster will hit the same mark.

Check out the video below, and then click here for our detailed preview report.
