Hyundai Veloster ‘one of the coolest cars under USD 18,000’, says leading auto guide

In another recognition for delivering both value and fun for drivers in the compact category, Hyundai's 2017 Veloster has been honored by a leading automotive publication.

Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, the United States' leading online guide to new and used motors, ranked the sporty coupe one of the "coolest cars under USD 18,000".

The ranking, which highlights dynamic vehicles that remain affordable to a wide array of consumers, is one of the longest-running by Kelley Blue Book, a trusted resource that dates back by almost a century.

"When we look at these rankings, we factor in not only price but what we describe as a 'cool factor' represented by a vehicle being both fun to drive and fun to own," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "The Veloster definitely fits the bill here, with a visual styling and ownership value that gives first-time owners and other budget-conscious buyers a fun experience without having to break the bank."

Awarding the accolade, Kelley Blue Book cited the Veloster's "utterly unique" styling, particularly the three-door configuration, coupled with a long warranty and low price to offer consumers high value. With bold design features on both interior and exterior, an available 6-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission, and a five-star safety rating by the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Veloster provides value and owner experience like nothing else in its class.

"The Veloster delivers a fun, fresh design that makes a modern, bold statement to Middle East and Africa consumers, who want affordable vehicles that have high performance and sophisticated styling," said Mike Song, Head of Operations for Africa and the Middle East at Hyundai Motor Company.

This accolade cements the Veloster's position as the most refined vehicle in its class, and underscores our determination and refusal to compromise on consistently exceeding our customers' expectations."
