Strikingly different than any car on the road, the three-door Veloster is that rare breed of truly unique. But what really sets the Veloster apart is innovation. A third door for easy rear-seat access, standard seven-inch touch-screen display, and a 1.6-litre gasoline direct-injection four-cylinder engine mated to Hyundai's first EcoShift Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Get ready to be wowed by the three-door sport coupe that’s fun to drive, nice to look at, and smart to own. Kick boring to the curb.
The Veloster was designed to deliver an exciting drive with a higher level of efficiency. And it starts under the hood with the Gamma 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine with GDI. A gasoline-direct-injection technology that allowed Hyundai engineers to create an engine that’s powerful, fuel-efficient and with fewer emissions. The Veloster also boasts Hyundai’s first EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission. It takes the benefits of a manual transmission, low fuel consumption and peppy performance, and blends them with automatic transmission benefits, such as a comfortable ride and smooth shifts. It’s the best of both worlds.
The standard 7” touch screen is the media hub of the Veloster. Jump in and your smart phone automatically syncs with the Bluetooth® so you can stream music, download your phonebook and take hands-free calls. Use it to back up with the rearview camera, depend on it for navigation (available with Tech Package), and enjoy it to look at uploaded pictures and play videos. For music, the possibilities are endless. Select playlists from your phone, stream SiriusXMTM Satellite Radio or use the iPod®/USB/Aux. 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 using your iPod® or iPhone®. The Veloster’s interior is an extension of you.
When you’re carrying the available proximity key, the Veloster will sense your presence and unlock the vehicle with the push of a buttonlocated on the door handle. Once in the driver seat, one press of the push button start brings the Turbocharged engine to life.
Every Veloster is equipped with six airbags, including dual front airbags, dual front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and two side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. It’s got you covered.
The Veloster combines the style of a coupe with the functionality of a hatchback but with an added feature: a third door. This makes getting in and out of the rear seat easy and hassle free. The unique look starts with the Hyundai design language, Fluidic Sculpture, and takes inspiration from a high-performance sport bike. This creates stunning features such as the muscular wheel arches, hood scoop detailing, distinctive rear glass hatch and the ultra cool dual centred chrome exhaust tips. This all works to make the Veloster unmistakable and unforgettable.
Nothing says sporty like a centre exhaust. Reserved for some of the world’s finest supercars, it comes standard on the Veloster.

With available projector headlights, the Veloster emits a strong, focused beam of light that greatly increases night-time visibility. It does so in style with the available LED accents. The advanced lighting technology is also incorporated into the available wraparound LED taillights (standard on Tech Package and Turbo Models).
