2012 Veloster Pricing 1 at 2012 Hyundai Veloster Pricing Announced

Hyundai priced its sporty new Veloster in America from $17,300 for the manual, and $18,550 for the one with EcoShift Dual Clutch.

That’s cheaper than almost all its rivals, and a whole two grand cheaper than the closest rival, Honda CR-Z. The CR-Z is a hybrid of course, but the Veloster with its 138 hp 1.6-liter GDI I4 engine is more sprightly and delivers 28/40/32 mpg with the six speed manual and 29/38/32 mpg with the DCT, which are not bad at all.

The Veloster party piece that sets it apart from the rivals is the unique third door for easy rear-seat access. This door in on the passenger side for safety reasons.

It also comes with Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system, Pandora internet radio, seven-inch touch-screen display, and a new 1.6-liter Gasoline-Direct-Injected (GDI) four-cylinder engine and six-speed transmission.

Veloster sales begin in September.
