The new Hyundai Veloster Coupe which will replace the Hyundai Coupe will go on sale in early 2011. The Veloster was first seen at the Seoul motor show back in 2007 as a Hyundai Concept Car, but its taken four years for the Hyundai Veloster to reach the production line. Surely the Velosters most radical design aspect must be the one rear suicide door previewed on the concept car which is similar to those on the MINI Clubman. But Hyundai unlike BMW who decided not to cater for right-hand-drive market created problems as the Mini Clubmans only rear door meant stepping out onto roadside and negotiating traffic, not good news for parents with young children. So Hyundai has decided the rear door will swap sides depending on what market the car is for. The Hyundai Veloster should sit on a modified version of the Hyundai i30 platform. The Veloster Coupe will use the firms new 1.6litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 168bhp and can achieve 48mpg. The Veloster could also be fitted with the 2.0litre 181bhp diesel featured on the Hyundai Santa Fe, which will help it compete against the Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0-litre TDI its obvious competitor. Cars like the VW Scirocco have helped inject new interest in the small coupe market and Hyundai simply has to match the style and quality if it is to succeed. The Hyundai Veloster will be sold as a 2+2 Coupe and should cost around the £16,000 mark.
