2013 Hyundai Veloster

The 2013 Hyundai Veloster was an interesting car. It only has 3 doors, the two front and one in the back on the passenger side. The back seats were also very small and cramped. This car was basically made for small people, not in a bad way, but if you are 6 feet tall there’s no way you are going to be comfortable in the back seat. The front wasn’t as bad. It was comfortable. My favorite part of this car was the steering wheel. It was the perfect size and had the perfect grip. This is our first car we have driven without a review camera that comes up when you put the car in reverse. I had suddenly began to enjoy that feature in the other car like the Hyundai Sonata. I find that feature very useful. This car also is very basic and not what you would call luxurious. Although it is not luxurious it was still a very nice car with nice features.

At Royal Auto this week we test drove the 2013 Hyundai Veloster.I was shocked to hear that the car had only three doors; my initial thought was that the hatchback counted as the third door. Much to my surprise, the car had two doors in the front and another one on the passenger side. This threw me off completely, I had never seen a car with only three doors before. When I first sat in the back seat, my eyes immediately picked up the interesting design elements that differed from a four door car, the window behind the driver seat was considerably smaller than the one on the opposite side. The interior design had an ultra-modern feel to it, reminding me of some futuristic space car.Sitting in the back was a little uncomfortable, it was a particularly small space and lacked a center arm rest, making it hard to fully relax in the backseat. One thing I liked about this car was the way that it handled the curves, the steering wheel gliding through your hands as you turned. The gear shift was a little confusing at first, rather than holding a button down and moving the gear shift up or down, you had to drag the gear shift in a pattern for it to lock on to a different gear. I really liked the hatchback trunk, whenever you opened the truck, a flap that goes over the bed of the trunk automatically opens with the door. One thing I found challenging about this car was getting into the backseat, you had to awkwardly duck and the ceiling was a little low, making it difficult for someone over five foot six to sit comfortably. Overall, I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a vehicle for cruising around town, it’s easy to maneuver and doesn’t take too long to learn how the car works.

Royal Auto had us drive the 2013 Hyundai Veloster this week. When I was first introduced to the car, I thought that only having three doors was quite unusual. The body of the veloster had an uncanny shape to it. When I first began to drive the gas petal was very delicate. Although it had a sporty handle, the car felt underpowered. The Veloster is not as fun to drive as it looks. It lacks comfortable seats and spacious vicinity. When I would drive in reverse, it was extremely difficult to see out of the back window because there is a large black bar across it the way. There is no headroom for tall drivers, especially in the back seat. I hit my head on the ceiling countless times, and it ruined the experience for me. What I did like about the car was the 7-inch touchscreen that was very easy to navigate. The buttons on the steering wheel were well organized, and easy for all drivers. All in all with some of its ample features and efficient engine, this car can be intriguing for buyers looking for an environmental friendly vehicle.
