Hyundai announces pricing for 2012 Veloster


Hyundai Veloster 2012

Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. today announced its new 2012 Veloster 3-door coupe will have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $18,999. As a Hyundai, the Veloster will be very well equipped with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, proximity keyless entry with push-button start, Gasoline Direct Injection fuel-saving technology, back-up camera and a 7-inch touch screen display as standard equipment.

The Veloster will be available at Hyundai dealers across Canada in September.

The Veloster arrives with the most aggressive adaptation of Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design language. First launched in 2010, Fluidic Sculpture evokes the interplay of wind with rigid surfaces to create the illusion of constant motion. With the Veloster, Hyundai has enhanced the design to give the car more visual appeal on the road.

Equipped with a 138-horsepower, 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine producing 123 lb.-ft. of torque, the Veloster can be paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or Hyundai’s first 6-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission. With Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) technology, the Veloster can achieve highway fuel efficiency of 4.9 L/100km – better than the Honda CR-Z Hybrid.

“The Veloster is a new type of vehicle for Hyundai,” said Steve Kelleher, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp.  “The car was designed to appeal to people looking for a compact, stylish coupe with sporty handling to navigate the modern urban jungle and an efficient engine in this era of high fuel prices. We’ve also infused the Veloster with the latest technology to help buyers get the most out of their car. We believe there simply is nothing else like the Veloster on the market right now.”

Pricing for the Veloster starts at $18,999 for a very well equipped model with a 6-speed manual transmission.  Additional standard equipment includes heated seats, Bluetooth, telescopic steering wheel, fog lights, LED position lights, centre-mounted dual chrome exhaust outlets and a sophisticated trip computer.  The 6-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission can be added for $1,400.

A single, optional $3,500 Tech Package is available, upgrading the Veloster with 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, satellite navigation, premium 450-watt Dimension audio system with subwoofer, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, upgraded seat covers and armrest, high-gloss black interior accents, alloy pedals and automatic light control.

A full complement of standard safety equipment includes six airbags, disc brakes at all four wheels and Hyundai’s Vehicle Stability Management system. Braking aids include ABS, electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.

Veloster combines the style of a coupe with the functionality of a hatchback, all while incorporating an additional passenger-side door. Hinged conventionally, the rear passenger side door of the Veloster provides safe and easy access to the rear seats. In order to maintain the classic coupe style, the passenger-side rear door handle is hidden in the C-pillar.
