Veloster stakes its claim in the compact coupe segment with unmatched technology and design, including Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system, Pandora internet radio with seven-inch touch-screen display, a new 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine mated to Hyundai's first dual-clutch transmission and unique 3-door design. It also has best-in-class interior volume for its segment while delivering an estimated 40 MPG on the highway, giving you hybrid mileage without the hybrid premium.
Introducing BlueLink. Your Wish Is Its Command.
Entirely new, the Veloster has been designed to keep you connected 24/7. Built-in features let you share your location with friends, receive automatic traffic updates, use hands-free texting, and even upload your favorite music and play videos through a USB port. You can also remotely lock your car, start your engine and if you've lost your car in the parking lot, you can even flicker the lights and honk the horn. Most importantly, and most impressively, the Blue Link™ SOS Emergency Assistance service can detect when you have been in a collision, locate your position and send the help you need.
BlueTooth: Check. Pandora: Check. Xbox 360... Really?
Hop in and your smart phone automatically syncs with the Bluetooth® so you can immediately start streaming music, download your phonebook and, of course, take calls. The 7-inch touchscreen is the media nerve center of the car. Use it to check out uploaded pictures, play videos and music, and even use the available integrated navigation system to map out your next destination. For music, you've got nothing but options. Select playlists from your phone, stream Pandora, XM® Satellite Radio or use the iPod®/USB inputs. Gracenote® music ID management displays album art, and has voice recognition that allows you to choose your music by artist, album or genre.
When you jump in, the first thing you notice is the abundant front leg room and brushed metal accents. Sport comfort seats set you within easy reach of your dash controls and the available leather-wrapped steering wheel with standard audio and cruise controls. The 7-inch multifunction touchscreen gives you control of everything from navigation to music. Power windows, door locks and heated mirrors are standard, while the available super-convenient Proximity Key entry and push button start will make you wonder how you ever got along without them.
Call Shotgun. On the Third Door.
The Veloster gets style points for its low, sport profile, available 18-inch alloy wheels with painted inserts, dual-scooped hood, LED headlight accents and available panoramic sunroof. And true to its concept car roots, the 3rd door adds functionality and makes for a grand entrance for your rear-seat passengers. The back end is finished off with carved-out tail lights, a shaped glass hatch and dual centered chrome-tipped exhaust outlet. Unique in a crowd of lookalikes, the Veloster carves out a new space in the compact sporty car segment.
Direct-Injected, Dual-Clutched, 40MPG-Ness.
The Veloster has a responsive 1.6L GDI 4-cylinder engine with D-CVVT, available EcoShift dual-clutch automatic transmission, a wide rear stance and a sport-tuned suspension that can make even a supermarket parking lot fun. And, at an estimated 40 MPG highway, it makes those trips fun and affordable.
