The Hyundai Veloster represents the Korean automaker’s move to become a more diverse brand. Known for building a whole lineup of impressive models, ranging from entry-level cars to mid-size vehicle, all the to SUVs and luxury cars, Hyundai had a whole lot of markets covered.
The sports hatch market, though, wasn’t in the company’s radar until it released the Veloster.
And when the Veloster did arrive, it ushered in a new era of affordable Hyundais with incredibly sporty looks and well-placed performance capabilities to back it up. It’s numbers aren’t as high as a lot of people would’ve liked, but overall, the Veloster offered customers a cool and new way to enjoy a car with sports car looks that won’t empty their wallets in the process.
