2012 Hyundai Veloster Six-Month Road Test: The Great American Road Trip Video

August 29, 2012

Our extended stay with a 2012 Hyundai Veloster wouldn't be complete without a long-distance road trip--and now that we've finally settled back into the daily routine after about 5000 miles in the Veloster, we're ready to report good news on how it suited us on the journey.

We've already shown you the photos from Yellowstone National Park, but now it's time for some video. We've even thrown a surprise or two in there for you, in between our departure from Portland, threading the needle between buffalo in Yellowstone, and stopping for free ice water at Wall Drug in South Dakota.

The Veloster handled the road trip with flying colors (mostly, bright orange). As we've found before, from seat comfort to visibility, the Veloster's pretty talented--and our fuel economy during the road trip held to our normal 30-mpg average for most of the trek. Of course, there was plenty of road noise along the way; it's been one of our chief gripes with the little orange car that attracted comments everywhere we went.

Over all the miles, reactions seemed positive to Hyundai's new hatchback. For a full recap of our road trip, watch the video and read our post on how the Veloster handles long-distance drives.
