DETROIT: Hyundai Veloster is one funky three-door hatch
The Koreans are really on a roll, Hyundai's Veloster three-door hatch is a cool ride for those with small families but want something exciting to move around in.
The third door really takes care of a lot of versatility issues and solves the access problem to the second row of seats.
With a 1.6-litre engine under the bonnet, the Veloster is not going to scorch tarmac but 138 horses through a six-speed dual clutch box will help give it brisk pace.
The Veloster also comes with Blue Link, Hyundai's new telematics system that integrates service schedule with GPS, remote start and vehicle tracking. The Blue Link is a US-only service for now.
Expect the Veloster to be priced near the Honda CR-Z
