Hyundai Veloster - 2012


Hyundai Veloster ....





The automotive group " Hyundai "recently became the fourth global automaker, the result of unbridled growth, achieved through product more convincing. Indeed, in a world affected by pessimism car, the Hyundai-Kia serves as an exception to the rule because in 12 years, the Korean went from 12th to 4th place in the world, behind Toyota, GM and Volkswagen but ahead of Ford. Programmed in three emergence time. Firstly, the production of medium quality discount models to make themselves known. Then the advent car maker as classic full. And finally today the desire to sit his reputation via the emergence of true originality, style and architecture. This originality was lacking hitherto Korean manufacturers often accused of "followers" has changed with the new Hyundai Veloster who wants to be the first evidence of this change ....


How to seduce drivers born in 1980 who are interested not so much in the car? This is the thorny question facing many marketing offices throughout the world. The Japanese and Korean paradoxically appear as the first to offer new alternatives likely to attract the "lost generation". After Nissan and Cube, Hyundai is now trying to seduce the customer with the Hyundai Veloster . On the aesthetic point of view, the Veloster is fly. Bold, there is no reference to classic sports. At most, one might liken the false air outlets that cover a Lotus Elise or central exhaust than the last Megane RS The back squat and squat they appear on unpublished. In detail, color inserts in the wheels, wings marked and taillights embedded in a concave curve more similar the Hyundai Veloster robot that of the automobile. Ultimately very attractive with a spirit stuck between Alfa Romeo, Citroen DS, Honda or Mazda, Hyundai strange car call for a customer to take contrarian daily. But what happiness a wise builder also flows into the deep end of the original cars ....


The main peculiarity of the Hyundai Veloster remains its asymmetry with a driver door and two passenger side and flanks reversed depending on whether it is a left hand drive or right hand drive. A unique architecture that has nothing to delirium designer, since the Veloster third door opens to a clientele of young families who fled the previously cut. In the genre, we already knew the cut 4 doors, 2 doors 2 seats, the "2 +2" or even the true sedan-like cut. The Veloster meanwhile opted for a "2 +1", sedan or coupe as you look right profile with a rear door or the left who does not. Certainly incongruous if it be published in the eyes of Cartesian automotive, architectural asymmetry unique to this model series should attract a clientele shifted want different roll while maintaining a real convenience. Responsibility reverts to its designer, Thomas Burkle, who came from BMW. The front is somewhat reminiscent of the Citroen DS while the large glass tailgate at the rear gives the appearance of a coupe station wagon with a broken line around a large cross invisible from the outside. Trompe l'oeil, the large glass roof of the superb Hyundai Veloster opens partially to alleviate the feeling of confinement in the rear. Finally, the new house has a hexagonal grille look at least as expressive long optical cutthroat LED, or to the side vents ....


Cut side road, curbside sedan, the Hyundai Veloster asymmetric is much more relevant as we imagine beyond geometry box, it flatters the ego of the driver sees a cut on his side, but domestic scene in perspective for the other side, both doors deliver regular access to inside and even safe for children who can not go up or down on the right side of the sidewalk. The roominess for four people is greater than expected increases and seduction to review the details of style. The interior presentation is flattering, while standard equipment omits nothing essential with a well designed center console and complete Meter tasteful to sporty much more nuanced than the physical Veloster might suggest, the Heated leather sports seats ensure a snug badged correct and electrically adjustable, GPS, sunroof, 6 airbags, ESP, 17'' rims and multimedia touch screen, reversing camera, auto air conditioning , USB iPod and even key less. In fact nothing is missing, and if Hyundai favors hard plastic, the end result is fully convincing and has nothing to envy to some rivals. And the unusual Hyundai Veloster has other arguments to make as the chassis displays a pleasing agility and precise direction as incisive ....
