Hyundai Veloster - Abu Dhabi

Look what we spotted in Khalidiyah, Abu Dhabi a few weeks ago ...

The Hyundai Veloster, what is most striking about this little car is its doors - 2 on one side, and 1 on the other side!

Price in UAE: 75K-80K AED (Or, 65K RM - Yes, Proton-money here!)
Excerpt taken from: Drive Arabia
Engine: 1.6 I4 FWD
Gearbox: Only auto available, it’s a 6 speed
Power: 128 BHP
Economy: 7.2 litres/100 km
Acceleration, 0-100 km/h: 10 secs

The Veloster is Hyundai's head-on dive into the sport-compact segment, with an entry that will be controversial forever. The styling for this compact hatchback is one thing, but it has only three side doors, one on the driver's side and two on the passenger side. The standard engine for the GCC is a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder, which puts a downer on its sporting intentions, especially since the standard gearbox is a 6-speed automatic. Features include a smart key with starter button, panoramic glass roof, cruise control, faux leather upholstery, 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth phone, LED rear lights, rear camera with sensors, fog lamps, adjustable steering wheel, power windows and electric mirrors. Additional features available in some markets include a full set of airbags, ABS, stability control, automatic a/c, power driver's seat and a premium stereo with subwoofer.
