Hyundai Veloster Overview
The Hyundai Veloster is the South Korean automaker’s attempt at a sporty coupé, featuring a unique asymmetrical door configuration, with one door on the driver side and two on the passenger side. It made its Malaysian debut back in 2012 with the facelifted model subsequently introduced three years later with an updated 1.6 L turbocharged powertrain.
The facelifted first-generation Hyundai Veloster is available in two trim levels- Turbo and the Turbo Sport variants. Price starts from RM 148,119 when new and are imported directly from South Korea.
Sitting in an incredibly niche subsegment, like-for-like, there aren’t many natural rivals that compete against the Hyundai Veloster. Although bearing a striking resemblance to the sporty Renault Megane RS Coupé, the Hyundai Veloster is more comparable to rivals like the Kia Cerato Koup and perhaps the slightly more premium Volkswagen Scirocco.
