My test drive in the Hyundai Veloster proved it to be a spirited performance compact car. It was fun to drive. With an aggressive design and functional 3rd door, the Veloster shows a completely new, modern look for Hyundai.
Veloster’s sleek sport bike inspired interior designed includes the new Blue Link™, which offers Location Sharing, Voice Text Messaging, and advanced voice recognition so you can search your music and find points of interest without distraction. The standard 7-inch multimedia touch screen can be personalized with one of three visual themes, and displays views from the available rearview camera for backing up. You can also watch video and play video games when parked.
Veloster offers a full slate of advanced active safety features including a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management system. In the event of an accident, Blue Link with Automatic Collision Notification and Assistance detects when the airbags have been deployed and automatically transmits a signal to a call center that directs help to your location.
