The Hyundai Veloster Street special edition has launched exclusively in Australia priced from $24,990, adding a sporty, more affordable alternative to the flagship Veloster Turbo to the local line-up.
Inspired by the Veloster-based Street concept car unveiled at last year's Australian international motor show in Sydney, the new Street special edition features a larger rear spoiler, ‘Street’ badging and sports suspension borrowed from the 150kW/265Nm Veloster SR Turbo.
Exclusive Sonic Silver exterior metallic paint and red-accented 18-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior highlights, and the cabin gains red leather upholstery and 'Street'-branded floor mats.
Mated to the base Veloster's 103kW/166Nm naturally aspirated 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Hyundai Veloster Street is on sale now at dealerships across Australia.
The unique hatch – with coupe looks on one side and two doors on the other – has been a huge success for the Korean brand in Australia, becoming one of our market's top-selling sports cars (behind the Toyota 86) since going on sale in February 2012.
