Official Premiere of the Hyundai Veloster Coupe

Hyundai's finally released information about the much anticipated Veloster Coupe. The brand new entry-level sports coupe will be introduced at the 2011 North American International Auto Show, held in Detroit, in January of next year. 

The Veloster will be available for sale in the United States in the first half of 2011. At first, the only model that will be available will be one with a 1.6L GDI four-cylinder engine but a 1.6L unit that has turbo technology and 175 horsepower will become available later in the year. A dual-clutch transmission will be included that has six speeds. The Veloster will get 40+ mpg on the highway. Prefer manual transmissions? You will be able to optionally select a six-speed manual transmission.

The Veloster is the replacement for the Tiburon. It will have sport aggressive styling, and if you have seen the pictures of the Veloster concept car, then you will see that it looks 70 or 80 percent like those pictures. You may not remember them - the concept was unveiled back in 2007.
