Singapore to get Hyundai Veloster this year?

Singapore to get Hyundai Veloster this year?



A unique three-door sporty coupe that was just launched worldwide this week may be coming to Singapore this year.

SINGAPORE - WILL Hyundai's latest and most exciting product, the Veloster, come to Singapore? The official word is no but there are indications otherwise.

When approached for comment, Mr Jeffrey Low, a spokesman for Komoco Motors, the official distributor for Hyundai cars here, said it was too early to tell whether the sporty coupe will be launched here.

Mr Low said that there hasn't been any indication of a right-hand drive model for markets like Singapore. The Veloster unveiled at the autoshow was a left-hand drive model for US markets.

However reports indicated that right-hand drive models are already confirmed for UK and Australia in late 2011.

If the Veloster does come, the premium coupe will do a lot for the Hyundai brand in Singapore Mr Low said. The current high premium certificate of entitlement climate meant that premium cars will do better than run-of-the-mill cars because of their higher pricing.

What is it

The Veloster, a three-door coupe, was just revealed at the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on Monday, Jan 10. The production car builds on the concept first shown at the Seoul Motor Show four years ago.

The sexy little coupe (see photos below) holds lots of promise for the Korean carmaker. With a unique three-door configuration, the Veloster is very different from traditional two-door coupes. There is a third door on the passenger side that gives easy access to the rear seats.

The Veloster will have Hyundai's first six-speed dual-clutch transmission which will be paired to a new 1.6-litre four-cylinder GDI petrol engine In a statement released to the press, Hyundai said that the setup will offer "driving enjoyment with high fuel economy and low CO2 emissions."

Things like the black A-pillars and the rear glass hatch also give the Veloster a luxurious touch while the bonnet details, strong wheel arches and centre-mounted exhaust impart a sporty intent.

The coupe will be available in either 140bhp or a turbocharged 280bhp form and tips the scales at 1172kg. Numbers for the local Veloster could vary however.

Komoco Motors is also expected to launch the new Hyundai Avante this year.
