Not to be outdone by Toyota’s stylish Scion division, Hyundai turned to its Premium Youth Lab for the Veloster.

Based on a show car design, and first released for the 2012 model year as a replacement for the Tiburon, the hatchback features a three-door configuration—one door on the driver’s side and two doors on the passenger side. The 1.6 liter engine in the base model produces a respectable 138 horsepower; a turbocharged version ups output to a healthy 201 horsepower. In typical Hyundai fashion, the Veloster’s style and performance can be had for an affordable price.

Major changes included:

The Veloster is all-new for 2012. It offers a modern take on the traditional hatchback, with bold details and an unusual three-door design. Powering the Veloster is a 1.6-liter inline-four coupled to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic dual clutch transmission. Both yield good fuel economy.

Only one trim is available, but some of its standard features are available only at higher levels on competing models. The Style package and the Tech package add further enhancements.
