Up until now, we’ve seen scoop pics of the facelifted Veloster that’s due to debut at next year's Detroit or Chicago auto show. Surprisingly, though, Hyundai had managed to keep a tight lid on any leaks regarding the car’s specs.

Using a truck as a ramrod to stop a reckless teen trying to flee from the police in a stolen car sounds extreme and even dangerous, but once you see the first video below of said 14-year-old behind the wheel of the Hyundai Veloster he had stolen from his grandfather, you'll probably end up justifying the actions of Bryson Rowley.

Pop up the Hyundai Veloster RM Concept's hood and what you'll find is a nicely padded space for your bags; that's because this fully-drivable study turns the Veloster around, both literally and metaphorically, placing a new high output engine that now feeds the rear wheels, right behind the driver.

Hyundai Veloster Suddenly Becomes Interesting with Midship Concept


Read more

For sure, the 2+1 door layout sets the Veloster apart from other more conventional sporty-flavored models, but at the end of the day, it remains a front-engine, front-wheel drive car with not a whole lot of power. You may have a different opinion about the new Veloster 'Midship' Concept, though, which was presented at the 2014 Busan International Motor Show in Korea.

Nothing to see people, move along… Nevertheless, if you must know what Hyundai was babbling about last week when it announced the premiere of a new addition to the Veloster range at the Chicago Auto Show, it's the "RE:FLEX" limited edition trim level that will go on sale in the States this Spring.

Hyundai Bringing New Addition to Veloster Range in Chicago – Will it Be Worthwhile?


Read more

It hasn't been that long since Hyundai last enhanced the range of its Veloster sports compact – that would be at the 2013 LA Auto Show in late November where it introduced the subtly tweaked Veloster Turbo R-Spec, and now we're told that it will do something similar at the Chicago Auto Show next week.

NSFW Review Puts the Hyundai Veloster in its Place


Read more

One often gets the impression with many mainstream car reviewers that even when they do find faults with whatever it is that they are testing, they most overly-sugarcoat the defects so that they sound nice, friendly, not being deal-breakers at all. Diplomacy is nice and all, but it has no place in the world of reviewing consumer goods, and especially complex, intricate ones like cars.

Hyundai Reveals More Focused Veloster Turbo R-Spec in Los Angeles [w/Video]

The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is not a hot hatch, despite having a 201 hp 1.6-liter engine, sporty-tuned suspension and rakish looks. What it is basically, is a very fast commuter car that can outpace most regular models and keep up with faster motors when their drivers are not caning it.

Hyundai Recalling 2012 Veloster Because Panoramic Sunroof May Shatter and For Parking Brake Issue


Read more

For the month of December, Hyundai has issued two separate recalls for its 2012 model year Veloster sports hatch in the States.

The first recall action affects 13,500 Velosters manufactured from November 1, 2011, through April 17, 2012, and equipped with panoramic sunroofs.

Hyundai Opens Veloster's Roof Like a Tin Can to Create C3 Roll Top Concept [w/Videos]


Read more

Gone are the times that carmakers used the terms' convertible' and 'cabriolet' to describe genuine open top models. Nowadays, you have Fiat calling the 500C a convertible and Citroen the DS3 Cabrio, well, a cabriolet, even though both models feature a roll over, cloth sunroof that happens to include the rear window.

We didn’t mention those two models by chance, as Hyundai has also attempted something similar with its new Veloster C3 Roll Top Concept that made its world premiere today at the LA Auto Show.

New Hyundai Veloster RE:MIX Edition to Enter Limited Production, Priced from $19,900*


Read more

The Specialty Equipment Market Association show, most commonly (and conveniently) known as SEMA, that’s taking place these days in Las Vegas is the perfect venue for manufacturers to showcase pumped-up versions of their normal production cars.

Some of them eventually enter production while others remain just something for the tuning scene crowd to salivate over. Hyundai’s Veloster RE:MIX belongs to the former category, as it is much more down-to-Earth compared to some of the other versions launched at the show.

The second Veloster concept car getting ready to make its way to Hyundai's SEMA Show booth at the end of October is named "Alpine", and like the Genesis Coupe R-Track Study, it too was born from the collaborative efforts of the Korean automaker's US division and ARK Performance.

The Veloster Alpine is not as racy as Hyundai's own 400Hp Veloster "Velocity" project, with ARK Performance stating that the car was designed to appeal to mountain sports enthusiasts - though, we won't blame you if you don't see this from the teaser image...

The 2012 Australian International Motor Show, held in Sydney and open to the public from October 19 to 28, will see Hyundai displaying the new Veloster Street Concept.

The very SEMA-like project car is based on the production model and has been modified from top to bottom in conjunction with local aftermarket company Concord Customs.

On the outside, the body is finished in matt grey paint with orange accents to be found on the new side-skirts, rear diffuser, front spoiler and the Tenso R V1 18-inch wheels that are shod in 215/40/18 tires.
