From February 2012 the new Hyundai Veloster Coupe goes on sale in the UK, starting from £17,995.
The UK-spec Veloster will be available in two main trim levels (Veloster and Veloster Sport) and powered by an efficient 1.6-litre four-cylinder GDI petrol engine, generating 140PS. You can have it with either a six-speed manual gearbox or Hyundai’s first dual-clutch transmission.
Economy-wise, we have CO2 emissions of 137g/km and a combined fuel economy of 47.9mpg, thanks to features like intelligent Stop & Go technology and low rolling resistance tyres.
Standard features on base models include: 17” alloy wheels, a 7” Touch screen media centre (with capability of playing games through consoles and films from smart phones), Bluetooth Connectivity with voice recognition, climate control air conditioning, reversing sensors, front and rear fog lights and striking LED daytime running lights. The Veloster also features a stereo RDS Radio/CD Player with MP3/WMA compatibility and an iPod connection, with the ability to control all functions on the leather steering wheel for added convenience.
The Veloster Sport adds: 18” alloy wheels with colour inserts, black leather upholstery with heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof with tilt and slide function, cruise control, keyless entry with engine start/stop button and sporty alloy pedals.
There is an optional Media Pack available for the sport trim, which adds touch screen satellite navigation with rear view parking camera, Parking Guidance System and 7 speakers including Amp and subwoofer and red leather interior.Hyundai Veloster - UK Prices and Specs,
