You are in the Hyundai Veloster
What is this discussion about?

It's a shame the tech package requires the "style" package. I see the rear-view & sensors as a requirement on this car since the way it's styled really does leave everything behind you in a blind spot...or you'll need to go extremely slow.
I just read a review where you can only order two packages for Veloster, style or tech. There was no mention in the article that you had to order style in order to get tech. If this is true it will give you all the things you get with the style package (this is the one I would go with, I would want the sunroof and better stereo that comes with the style package) and the tech package but this would greatly increase the overall price of your Veloster I would think.
Are you sure that's true, Ivan, the article I read says you can order style or tech.
Here's the link to that very article.

If you go to http://www.hyundaiusa.com and try to build a Veloster, you will find that you can get the Style package by itself, but the Tech package does require the Style package as a prerequisite.

yeah...unfortunately you're right with the packages.
Not a sunroof fan, but if it doesn't interfere with head room then I suppose it doesn't hurt too much. It's nice that it opens on the outside of the car...saving precious rear head room.
I see most manufacturers offer the "package only" options; I suppose it cuts down on costs...
The 18K price with all options take a big 25% hit (or so) when fully optioned. Although nobody is forcing you to take the options. The "base" car was very nice...even standard rims were nice; it's just other others are "nicer"

Red interior requires at minimum the Style Pkg.
Also, only white, red, or black exterior is available with red interior.
Base Veloster is not available with red interior.

with the Hyundai Veloster. I will keep a watch on this car and how it does with consumers throughout the coming months. I really like how the production version of Veloster came out. It tops the concept Veloster look even. And the paint jobs are vivid with the car, too.

The paint really is striking...I'm not certain if they have a new process; which could potentially have issues (new process...bugs not worked out, etc).
Or they may just have bolder colors to go with the bolder design; e.g. having a Camry in a similar red may look silly.
Either way, at this point, the paint/colors remind me the first time I looked at a 24" mac monitor...wow....

Hyundai has hit another home run with this 2012 Hyundai Veloster.

Wow, the car looks stunning in red.
#26 of 72 The engine & maintenance...
Oct 17, 2011 (7:27 am)
Is the Veloster's motor and transmission a new design or from a pervious Hyundai?
Also, does the motor have a timing belt or chain? Is 100k the first major service required?
Thanks for any info!

The engine is shared with the Accent, but the Veloster's automatic is a new six-speed dual-clutch unit with shift paddles. (Manual is 6 speeds also.) Engine has a timing chain. Not sure what you mean by "major" service interval, but most Hyundais have a major service interval at 60k. Won't be as "major" as in the past of course because no timing belt to replace then.

Thanks backy for the info!
Thanks for confirming the Veloster's engine is also shared with the Accent. Would you happen to know how long the motor has been in production?
What is the 60k major service? I'm going to guess tranny fluid and coolant changing, then plugs at 100k. One thing I do like about my Accord is the minimum maintenance and hoping Hyundai's are as easy to maintain.
