Photos of the Hyundai Veloster

Large grille, of course, but it works with the shape. This is the two-door side of the car.

This was a fun car to photograph owing to its dramatic shape and surfacing. Again the two-door side.

More muscular and chiseled than the original Veloster. This is the single-door driver side.

The original Veloster had a rounder shape and a more dramatic roof line.

I love how the Civic Type R drives, but cannot pull off this styling. Trying way too hard.

The sleekest Golf yet, but still a box compared to the Veloster.

If you want a conventional hatchback, Hyundai offers the Elantra GT--but not in N form in the U.S.

The rear pillar is much more conventional on the new Veloster. This aids rearward visibility.

The Veloster's styling remains dramatic, but the drama is now more in the details than the shape.

The original Veloster appeared especially futuristic from the rear.

The new Veloster's interior isn't nearly as stylish as its exterior.

The GTI has a more upscale interior with less hard plastic and (with the standard plaid) less black.

The original Veloster interior included some welcome color, but also questionable styling.

Much tamer than the first-generation Veloster's instrument panel.

Typical of Hyundai, the controls are well organized and easy to use.

Hyundai Veloster Photos: Hyundai Veloster N driver seat

Comfortable and well-bolstered driver seat. Good if perhaps overly black fabric.

Viable rear seat. The hard part is getting through the door--and there's only one of them.

Small opening, and a marginal amount of space behind the rear seat. Cute little butt has a downside.

Fold the seats and a 29er mountain bike will barely fit.

Did you expect 275 horsepower to look more special?
