The all new Hyundai Veloster combines the style of a coupé with the everyday practicality of a hatch. Now available at Coffs Harbour Hyundai, we take a look at what this spunky model has to offer.
A car like no other, the Veloster boasts a classic two-door sports car look and is packed with technology delivering safety, comfort and entertainment. This is one powerful yet economical vehicle, with 6 speed transmission and great fuel economy.
To maintain the integrity of the Veloster’s two door coupé styling, there is a hidden third door for rear seat access, with the handle hidden in the window frame.
Maintaining the perfect mix of style and performance, the Veloster features a chrome finished, dual centre exhaust, sporty fog lamps and LED daytime running lights which turn on automatically and enhance the vehicle’s visibility to other drivers.
Inside, the Veloster delivers as much fun to passengers as it does to the driver. The roomy and comfortable interior is a showcase of cutting edge innovation, keeping you connected, informed and entertained.
The coupé features bolstered bucket seats in the front with folding rear seats that increase luggage capacity and allow extra room for unusually shaped items. When you open the Veloster’s tailgate, it reveals a pleasant surprise – a generous boot that allows up to 440 litres of luggage space.
An impressive 7-inch multimedia touch screen dominates the centre console and supports a range of advanced systems, including Bluetooth® and iPod® connectivity and the ability to watch movies while you’re parked!
Remote control switches on the steering wheel provide you with fingertip control over the operation of the audio and Bluetooth® functions, the auto cruise control and the trip computer. This makes long distance driving less strenuous and more enjoyable.
The Veloster + model has a few additional features all of its own … including a two-piece panoramic sunroof, electric-folding and heated outside mirrors, auto climate control, and a proximity smart key and push button start.
When it comes to performance and safety, the Veloster won’t let you down. Under the hood you’ll find an impressive all-aluminium Gamma 1.6 Direct Injection litre engine. The Veloster’s responsive and robust new engine is lightweight, quiet and vibration free. It utilises a highly efficient Gasoline Direct Injection (GDi) fuel system to improve engine performance, fuel economy and lower exhaust emissions, while Dual CVVT increases torque through better-optimised valve operation.
The Veloster’s 6-speed double clutch transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters enables lightning fast gear changes and features an electric motor-type clutch that provides better fuel efficiency, fast and smooth automated gear changes and an uninterrupted transfer of power.
The Veloster has achieved the maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating. It comes standard with numerous safety technologies, including: 6 airbags, reinforced steel frame, reversing camera, Vehicle Stability Management & Electronic Stability Control, ABS brakes with Electronic Brake-force distribution; and Hyundai’s Traction Control System
All in all, the Veloster is an extremely slick vehicle. So head on down to Coffs Harbour Hyundai to test drive one for yourself.
