A new concept in a car would be one that combines the style of a coupé with the functionality of a hatchback. Veloster is that concept made real. A crossover utility vehicle with a unique, innovative presence, it’s where dynamics meets practicality.
The car’s lines are bold and dynamic. The hexagonal radiator grill and audacious lamp design express progression and modernity. While the unique 1+2 door configuration maximizes practicality, the sleek coupé profile conveys sportiness and a unique styling very different from existing coupés and hatchbacks. Urban driving gains an edge-something that strikes home with just one glance at Veloster’s profile. At the front, a short front overhang. Above, a roof line that slopes downwards from front to back. Lower side character lines arc across the bodywork, while the front pillars are colored black to accentuate the sporty feel. Sleek toughness personified, this is a punchy, athletic coupé in the finest tradition.
Sporty and dynamic for the promise of the road
Swooping and curving to suggest a powerful sense of motion and freedom, the interior of Veloster takes its inspiration from a different kind of machine, but one steeped in the thrill of the open road : the motorbike. Sporty and assertive, the robust design is completed by high-tech, stylishly designed elements that are picked out here and there with high gloss black. The switches and controls to access Veloster’s convenient multimedia functions are placed within easy reach on the center console. A large, 7" color TFT touch pad display all information, while users can easily plug in external devices thanks to USB connection.
Shaped like the fuel tank of a motorbike, the center fascia blends aesthetics and functionality to perfect effect. Referencing Generation Y’s preference for an outdoorsy, active lifestyle, the interior styling of Veloster is robust and purposeful, with details that emphasize the car’s fun-to-drive quality. Every interior element delivers a feeling of toughness, from the bold center fascia to the metal-painted details around the center fascia, gearstick, door handles, air vents and supervision cluster.
