2012 Hyundai Veloster

2012 Hyundai Veloster

Earlier today we reported that John Krafcik, CEO of Hyundai Motor America, tweeted that the base price of the 2012 Veloster will be $17,300. At the time we didn't know whether that price included destination or not. Now all our questions have been answered as Hyundai has just released full pricing details for its funky new hatchback.

As Krafcik mentioned on Twitter, the Veloster will start from $17,300, but that does not include the $760 destination charge. That price is for the base Veloster with a six-speed manual transmission. Add another $1,250 if you opt for the new EcoShift dual-clutch transmission.

All Velosters will feature a multi-function seven-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth with voice recognition technology.

The Veloster has a best in class power rating, with its 1.6-liter engine delivering 138 horsepower. That may seem kind of feeble, but remember that the Veloster weighs more than 400 pounds less than a similarly sized Scion tC.

A $2,000 style package is available and includes everything from 18-inch alloy wheels and front fog lights to a panoramic sunroof and premium audio system with eight speakers, among other things. An additional $2,000 tech package requires the style package and adds unique painted wheel inserts, a navigation system, and proximity key and push button start.

Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the Veloster's launch later this summer.

  1. For decades I've seen these inflated destination charges, non negotiable , added to car prices. I can ship a car at the posted price so why don't the large companies get a better price and why keep the high price passed on to comsumers?

    Bad stuff?

  2. This car is WAY better looking and more cool than anything at Scion. And Honda made the Civic so un-cool this latest round. I don't usually cheer for Hyundai but they seem to be firing on all cylinders lately, No pun.
