We take the Hyundai Veloster out for a drive.

THE LOOK: This is prob­a­bly one of the sex­i­est bod­ies we’ve seen in a while! While the lines are smooth and sexy, there’s some­thing fierce about the Veloster. With a slop­ing roof and a short front over­hang, the Veloster’s pro­file is noth­ing short of sleek. It also comes with a panoramic sun­roof and oddly enough, three doors – one on the driver side and two on the pas­sen­ger side.

SPACE: Its space may seem tight but the Veloster is very com­fort­able and al­lows for am­ple move­ment and room. Trunk space is also as gen­er­ous and can be in­creased by fold­ing the rear seats to cre­ate more space for heav­ier loads.

PER­FOR­MANCE: The Veloster is highly re­spon­sive. Its han­dling is smooth and easy to adapt to. It is also de­signed with a range of en­gi­neer­ing tech­nolo­gies that ab­sorb the vi­bra­tions you en­counter while on the road.

SAFETY: De­signed to en­sure you stay in con­trol at all times, this comes with an Elec­tronic Sta­bil­ity Pro­gram (ESP) sys­tem, Ve­hi­cle Sta­bil­ity Man­age­ment (VSM) sys­tem, Anti-Lock Brak­ing Sys­tem (ABS), and Trac­tion Con­trol Sys­tem (TCS). The Brake As­sist Sys­tem (BAS) short­ens the stop­ping dis­tance in emer­gency sit­u­a­tions by in­creas­ing the brak­ing power while the Hill­start As­sist Con­trol (HAC) pre­vents the Veloster from slip­ping back­wards when start­ing off up or down­hill.

OVER­ALL: We love the drive, the feel, and the style. In short, we love this car!

PRICE: The Hyundai Veloster is priced at RM132,888 OTR in­clud­ing in­sur­ance.
