2012 Hyundai Veloster coupe teaser image reveals funky third door !
Hyundai today released the second teaser image of its all-new Veloster Coupe. Set to make its official premiere at the 2011 NAIAS next week, the funky looking sports coupe will replace the popular Hyundai Tiburon, which has been axed from the automakers US line-up more than one year ago.
As seen on the teaser image, the new Veloster features two front doors and one (!) rear door positioned on the right side. If you thought this is the only vehicle currently on sale with such a provocative door design, let me tell you you're wrong! There's a already three-door Mini Clubman on sale in Europe!
Although the overall styling layout of the 2012 Hyundai Veloster seems promising, we are pretty that the third-door will split the automobile enthusiasts to those who like'it and those who don't like'it.
In addition to uniqe styling approach, Hyundai Veloster will be the first new car from Hyundai Motor Company fitted with the six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission! The Veloster will also feature 40-mpg 1.6L gasoline direct injection -GDI engine and Bluetooth connectivity.
Hyundai Veloster release date is scheduled for Detroit Motor Show next week, while sales are expected to commence in the second half of 2011. Stay tuned for more details!
