Hyundai's funky new Veloster is quite a looker! But the weiredest thing about it is that it has 2 doors at the front and 1 door at the back!! Autoblog.com spent some time with the car and here are some pictures...

Looks sexy from this angle!

I picked up few in Thimphu, uploading one of them here. I liked the bold look of the machine. Am not sure if Hyundai or any other player in the mass car segment plans to bring a 3 door hatch in India.

Isn't it other way around? I think its losely based on the Elantra sedan sharing engine and interior with elantra.

Hope they launch either in India soon.

Amazing looks and design. Hyundai has come a long ways from being accused of stealing designes to fluidiac and now this

Wish they would bring a good, low priced SUV also

If they introduce the car here then the rear door should be on the left side,else it will be contradicting the actual purpose of having 3 doors instead of 4.
