The 2012 Hyundai Veloster – Sporty Yet Average

Looks can be deceiving. For a while, the 2012 Hyundai Veloster doesn’t seem like your usual hatchback economy car. A closer look reveals it could be just that. Disappointingly, the sporty exterior is but a façade. The 2012 Veloster is kinda slow, with a 0-60 mph rating of 8.5-10 seconds. Nevertheless, it’s more than capable of taking you where you need to be. The 1.6 liter four cylinder engine generates 138 horsepower. The best performance feature will have to be its high fuel efficiency rating: 28 mpg city driving/40 mpg highway. That is the average fuel consumption be it manual transmission or automatic. Few cars can match its fuel efficiency, one is probably the Mini-Cooper.

Being in the class of small hatchback cars, the 2012 Veloster doesn’t offer much room especially at the back. Only a maximum of four passengers and rear seating will be tight. Cargo space is also small. Other hatchbacks that can offer more room, like the 2012 Honda Fit.

Front seats have ample space though, and the dashboard is quite impressive with great standard, electronic features. There’s a 7-inch touch screen LCD and a CD/MP3 player sound system with eight premium speakers, and USB/iPod connectivity. The dashboard also has voice recognition controls, though voice commands aren’t too accurate.

For safety features, it has antilock disk brakes, traction and stability control, and airbags in the front and side. It has Hyundai’s Bluelink, a safety feature similar to GM’s Onstar, which pinpoints your exact location in case of an accident.

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster gets high marks for that really sporty exterior and the high fuel efficiency rating. Speed and power might be an issue, but then nobody expects a hatchback to haul cargo like a van or an SUV. It has a very low price range, at only $17,000 – 19,000+. You can probably save a lot of cash, but if you can dish a few more thousand, you’re better off looking at other cars out there.
