First look video: 2012 Hyundai Veloster

Consumer Reports News: April 14, 2011 12:38 PM

It's been a few years since Hyundai has had a small sporty car in their lineup. That's being remedied by the Veloster, a unique three-door hatchback. While Hyundai's sedans all retain similar styling cues—the new Accent looks like a shrunken Elantra which looks like a smaller Sonata—the Veloster definitely goes off in its own direction.

We had the chance to drive a Veloster recently at our test track. While driving impressions are still under press embargo, we filmed a video to give you a closer look at the car.

Also see our New Car Preview of the Veloster, including a walkaround video filmed at the Detroit Auto Show.
