Hyundai Veloster
Hyundai Veloster 2017 3-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2017 Base 3-door hatchback FWD Manual

The sporty Veloster hatchback has three doors, with the right-side rear door providing access to the tight rear seat. Based on the small Accent, the Veloster's 138-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder delivers adequate power, and the precise six-speed manual has low-effort throws. A dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual is optional. We got 31 mpg overall from a version with the manual transmission. Moving up to the Turbo trim gets you a strong 201-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and an available seven-speed automated manual transmission. Handling is responsive and secure. Though the ride is quite stiff, it isn't punishing. Rear visibility through the split back window is decent at best.

2012 Redesign Year
Hyundai Veloster 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Base

Unique coupe-like styling and reasonably entertaining handling mark the Veloster as an original and fairly engaging auto with a distinctive asymmetrical door layout. A single rear door on the passenger side eases rear seat access and improves practicality over a traditional coupe. While the engines could be more powerful, they were willing and the manual transmission offered good shifter feel. Generous standard equipment features add to the appeal. On the downside, outward visibility is compromised, ride quality could be more compliant and better noise isolation would improve the overall experience. For those seeking the most power available, go with the 201-hp, turbocharged model over the slightly less powerful 1.6-liter normally aspirated four-cylinder engine.
