Dual Centre Exhaust

The Veloster' s rear screams "sexy!" with its twin-barrelled and tipped in chrome, centrally located and built into the rear bumper. This is sportiness at its most captivating. It’s the view from behind you that most of your fellow drivers will see, as the Veloster sets a pace of its own.

6 Airbags

The airbag system consists of a driver airbag, passenger airbag, 2 side airbags and 2 curtain airbags. This dual stage airbag system deploys instantly on impact to reduce the chance of injury (depending on severity of the impact). 

Bluetooth Hands-free

Listen to your favourite tunes-on-the-go with Integrated Bluetooth which allows music to be streamed and phone calls to be made and received hands-free using your Bluetooth-compatible external device. Staying connected matters. 

18" Alloy wheels

Sleek and sporty, the Veloster has that extra edge of sportiness, the 18” alloy wheels that perfectly match the ferocious personality of the Veloster. The wheels are paired up with 215/40 R 18 tyres to ensure heightened grip, stability and style. 


Breaking ALL the rules

A new concept on the South African road in a car, the Veloster combines the style of a coupé with the functionality of a hatchback. It's where design meets practicality. 


With a short front overhang, this punchy coupé pulls off a sporty look. It is low to the ground with wheels set wide apart for extra manoeuvrability and a design that exudes style. Veloster drivers are certain to have a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience.

1+ 2 Door configuration

Boasting a breakthrough in automotive design, this sexy coupé has three doors: one door on the driver's side and two on the passenger side for easy access. This landmark design feature shows off Hyundai's progressive nature and willingness to challenge everything you thought you knew about a coupé. With a hidden door handle on the rear door that makes sure you keep that sleek, coupé styling in the bodywork whilst still giving you access to the rear seats when you need it.

Dual centre exhaust

As good looking from the rear as it is from the front. With a twin-barrelled and chrome tipped centre exhaust, on-lookers from the rear know you mean business. The exhaust is centrally located and neatly built into the centre of the bumper to show off the Velosters sporty and aggressive nature.

Outside mirrors with LED side repeaters

The outside electric folding mirrors are easily folded inwards to protect them against damage from parking in tight spaces. They're also stylishly shaped and feature LED repeaters, adding to the high-tech and sporty character. Using these repeaters will increase your visibility to other road users when activated.

Rear Combination Lamps

Beautiful and ferocious, the Velosters design is a work of art. The curved rear combination lamps follow the bodywork where the rear meets the side lines of the car. The wing-style rear combination lamps combine style with technology and improves visibility.

Front and rear fog lamps

Set low down on the bumper, both the sporty front and rear fog lamps complement the headlamps with their stylish and modern design. The fog lamps provide increased visibility when activated and also add to the aggressive look of the Veloster.


An interior to get your pulse racing

Inspired by a high-performance motorcycle the powerful and bold design of the exterior carries through to the interior. The driver's space reflects the desire to provide a sporty, dynamic area that’s made complete by the addition of the high tech, stylishly designed components. From the purposeful centre fascia to the metal-painted details around the centre console, door handles, air vents and gear stick – you can be sure that the Veloster has it all, inside and out.

Multi function steering wheel

The steering wheel of the Veloster gives you access to those important features you need to keep your driving experience focused on the road. The steering wheel remote control allows the driver to adjust the audio system and cruise control without lifting your hands from the wheel as well as taking and making calls through the Bluetooth system. 

Multimedia premium sound system

If sound is your thing, then the Velosters standard sound system has you covered. The premium audio system features a central speaker, external amplifier and a sub-woofer. Users can also connect external devices using the USB connection. The Veloster utilises the latest multimedia technology to enable you to always stay in touch. The Audio system features a radio, CD, MP3 player and the ability to play various multimedia files, all accessible through the steering wheel controls. 

Blue Max
The Blue Max Eco Guide analyses the driver's driving pattern for 10 minutes and displays a score to encourage fuel efficient driving. 

Rear view camera

The Veloster has thought of everything and is the perfect vehicle for you. A camera in the tailgate handle displays the view from the rear on the 7'' LCD display screen on the centre fascia. This not only adds to the convenience of parking your ride, but it increases your safety when reversing.

Auto airconditioner

Set your desired temperature and let the system take care of the rest, guaranteeing a customised interior climate that is completely comfortable. This will make sure that you enjoy yourself while you are at the peak of driving enjoyment.

Supervision Cluster

This is one cluster that looks great and is easy to understand. With two cylinder-type dials, emulating the tailpipe of a high performance motorcycle your driving information shown will include the trip computer, vehicle condition, temperature and driving mode selected.

Moving with the times
The 1.6 litre petrol engine of the Veloster provides 103kW of power and 167Nm of torque. The innovative engine of the Veloster paves the way for other Hyundai models, by being the first vehicle in the range to have a gasoline direct injection powered engine introduced to South Africa. The system injects atomised fuel into the cylinders at high pressure to provide maximum power and efficiency.


The Velosters 6-speed manual transmission is built with a key and ball-type synchromesh and has optimised gear tooth forms, for enhanced precision and smoother shifting. Thue dual clutch transmission (DCT) provides enhanced fuel efficiency, improved driving quality, reduced noise and prolonged durability. This is achieved by the transmission technology allowing the pre-selection of gears that give a instant power shift. 


Engineered for safety

A car has to be well built from every single perspective. That means paying as much attention to safety as style and design. Safety is a top priority for Hyundai, and it’s been given close attention throughout the Veloster, in the form of a comprehensive airbag system, crumple zones, side impact protection beams, uni-body construction, seatbelts and ISOFIX.

6 Airbags

Always putting your safety comes first, the depowered airbags on the front seats deploy at reduced force to prevent possible injury. Side and curtain airbags add to the protection in the event of a collision. They also reduce the possibility of head injuries, and prevent occupants from being catapulted forwards.  

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Electronic Stability Control regulates brake pressure and engine output in the event of a sudden change of direction, acceleration and braking, to bring the car safely under control.


Customise & Accessorise
The Hyundai Veloster embodies uniqueness through its innovative and breakthrough design. That’s why we offer a wide range of genuine accessories, allowing you to customize your car to suit your unique tastes and lifestyle. Our genuine accessories are designed and built to Hyundai’s high quality standards to ensure you always get the most out of your vehicle. Carefully selected material and practical technology ensure that there’s something to cater for you and your needs
