Coupe ready for big show

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

HE Hyundai Veloster (above) is con­firmed for a show­room­ready ap­pear­ance at the Detroit Mo­tor Show in Jan­uary.

‘‘Yes, you will see it there. We can­not wait,’’ Hyundai’s H.S. Lee says.

The Veloster is a two-door coupe that first ap­peared as a con­cept at the Seoul Mo­tor Show in 2007.

Since then it has been semire­vealed at a press event in the US and test cars have been caught many times by Carparazzi.

Lee con­firms the ba­sic de­tails of the Veloster but not the crit­i­cal price or pow­er­plant. But Hyundai US says it will have fuel econ­omy bet­ter than 6.0 litres/ 100km as it moves to im­prove its fleet av­er­age to 4.7 litres/100km by 2025.

The Veloster will be re­vealed in Detroit along­side a re-styled Ac­cent.
