Hyundai Veloster what the CRX replacement should have been





Lightweight 40MPG 6 speed manual 138HP with a 175HP turbo version coming and rumors of the 274HP Sonata engine also going in there. Looks like a real winner to me.

http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=20623

Hyundai's Veloster will get 40 mpg on the highway without the use of hybrid technology

We've talked about Hyundai's Veloster on a few occasions here at DailyTech. These days, many companies are using expensive electric motors and lithium-ion batteries to achieve 40+ mpg in their vehicles. Hyundai, however, is sticking to lightweight platforms and advanced engines to achieve the same feat.

The latest "40 mpg" addition to the family is the 2012 Veloster, which is quite odd being that it has three passenger doors in addition to a traditional rear hatch. The driver's side of the vehicle has a single door, while the passenger's side of the vehicle has a shortened front door and a small rear door to aid in accessing the rear seat.

When it comes to the vehicle specifications, Hyundai has managed to keep curb weight to a minimum at just 2,584 pounds in 6-speed manual form. The six-speed, dual-clutch transmission (DCT) version weighs in at 2,657 pounds. Power comes from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops just 138 hp.

Hyundai says that a Veloster equipped with a DCT will get up to 40 mpg on the highway. The company, however, has not disclosed EPA city ratings for either transmission or highway ratings for the Veloster equipped with a 6-speed manual.

The Veloster will come standard with a 7" touch screen with integrated Pandora Radio support. Hyundai's new BlueLink telematics system will also be included as standard equipment.

Now we come to the styling. The Veloster is likely to draw love it/hate it comments from people who lay eyes on it. While its style is certainly distinctive, it's asymmetric design, bulges, and gaping front bumper are sure to find a fair share of critics.

However, there are two things that play into the Veloster favor. First off, Hyundai officials state that the vehicle will start at a relatively affordable $17,000, which is not bad for a sporty vehicle with good EPA numbers. The second "plus" for the Veloster won't come until sometime next year. Edmunds Inside Line reports that the Veloster will get the a turbocharged version of the 1.6-liter engine good for around 175hp -- the Sonata Turbo's 274hp, 2.0T engine is also a distant possibility. That should make for quite a little "pocket rocket", but won’t do Hyundai any favors when it comes to EPA numbers.

considering the sonata turbo get 34 MPG with the 2.0L turbo i would imagine it would get even better mileage in the much lighter Veloster.

I would also think that 1.6L Turbo in a veloster could get 40 MPG and would expect it to have over 200hp considering the 2.0L makes 275

Looks great but very often production cars look almost nothing like the concept model.

Frack, hyundai's squiggly "H" emblem has more fire than Honda's straight arrow edge H. I hate to say this, but aside from S2K, Type-R, or the NSX, I think I would choose Hyundai over current Honda models.

But that concept isn't too outrageous either so we can expect the production model to look mostly like that.

It might lose the gimmicky bits like the passenger door or the faux diffuser but that should be close to the real thing. And it looks ok. Not as good as a CR-Z but it should perform way better.

Sadly, there's no need for Honda to step up their game. Honda has been living off of their reputation that they built in the 1980s. The Civic still sells like hotcakes and the Accord isn't a sales slouch either. Even if Honda decides to make a somewhat sporty car, they will lose out to luxury brands such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes which have made their cars more "affordable" in the last 10 years with aggressive leasing programs. I see more late model 3-series coupes on the road than RSXs. Heck, I even see more Z4s than S2000s.
