Hyundai Veloster

Hyundai's sporty car heritage is thin at best, but it's really tried to tie one on with the unusual Veloster hatch.

Its biggest point of difference is its truly unique four-door hatchback design, with a single door on the driver's side and two doors on the passenger side (plus the tailgate, of course). The Veloster can be had with two different drivetrains; a 1.6-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed dual clutch transmission in the $29,590 Veloster (base), or a more potent 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch in the $38,250 Veloster Street Turbo Special Edition.
