Sophisticated, stylish and easy on the wallet, the all-new 2012 Hyundai Veloster was recently named Urban Car of the Year by Decisive magazine. The recognition is part of the annual Urban Wheel Awards, which will honor all winners in January, at a gala that’s an “Official Multicultural Event” of the North American International Auto Show.
“The Hyundai Veloster is a combination of a hip and edgy image, along with exceptional value to price and outstanding fuel economy that is perfectly suited for urban drivers,” said Lyndon Conrad Bell, Decisive magazine’s editor-in-chief. “Hyundai’s choice to make its halo car an entry-level model excites us even more. With Veloster, Hyundai definitely proves that high style and reasonable pricing absolutely can go together.”
According to Hyundai Price Quote Cambridge, the Veloster offers standard content like a unique passenger’s-side third door for easy access to rear seats, the Hyundai Blue Link telematics system, Pandora internet radio, a seven-inch touchscreen display, a 138-hp I4 engine with gasoline direct injection, a sporty six-speed manual transmission and an EPA line of 28 mpg city/40 mpg highway/32 mpg combined. And that’s all with an MSRP that starts from just $17,300.
“Conceived to attract new, youthful drivers to the Hyundai brand, Veloster stands out from the crowd with a stylish yet functional design that combines the best characteristics of both a coupe and hatchback,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The unique personality of the car is attracting many different types of shoppers and we’re honored that the panel of experts with Decisive magazine felt it met the needs of urban drivers so well.”
The award-winning 2012 Hyundai Veloster is on sale at Hyundai Dealers Los Angeles and local dealerships now.
