Funky­coupe outed

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

HE Hyundai Veloster is con­firmed for a show­room­ready ap­pear­ance at the Detroit Mo­tor Show next month. ‘‘Yes, you will see it there. We can­not wait,’’ Hyundai vice-chair­man for re­search and devel­op­ment H.S.Lee tells cars­Guide.

The Veloster is a funky 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 the com­pany moves to im­prove its fleet av­er­age to 4.7 litres/100km by 2025.

The Veloster is ex­pected to be re­vealed in Detroit along­side a restyled Ac­cent and sev­eral new i45 mod­els, in­clud­ing a hy­brid and a turbo.
