"The first time I saw this car was in an ad. Went to the dealership and checked it out. I got the electrolyte green. I love it. I have received compliments on my car just about every time I take it out; and that is going on 5 years. The paint finish has held up very well; still looks new. The only problem I have really experienced is the visibility which would not be a problem if it had a front camera. This has caused me to hit the wheels a couple of times. Now, I just turn wide. Also, the mileage was less than what was on the sticker; Hyundai has tried to make up for that by monetary reimbursements based on the mileage for the life of the car with the original owner."
"I purchased a 2016 Voloster, I read many reviews by owners and experts before buying. I found the car to be what I expected, with great fuel economy and a great price. I bought the turbo version, it comes with many standard features, and like one expert said the turbo is smooth, you rally don't feel a sudden leap. I mean you feel the increase in power and it really gets you there fast. I get 26 to 29 mpg in town and 33 to 39 on the highway, with economy selected. The back seats are hard to get in and out of if you are other than a small person, knew that before I bought. And the rear view is limited, Hyundai solved the problem with a blind spot mirror on the drivers side, and I put one on the passenger side. The seats are very comfortable and support you well. The people that have written bad reviews, must not have driven the same car I purchased. If you read owner reviews and do some research, you will find this is a great car for a good price."
"I love this little car. I traded my 2011 Genesis coupe for a 2012 Veloster. Quality issues plagued the Genesis but the Veloster seems to be solid and better built. It is fun to drive and is fully loaded. If you can afford it take both packages, style and tech. You will have everything available including the beautiful wheels that have body colored painted inserts. Although it is not as fast as the Genesis was, it does fine under all driving situations. I chose a manual transmission because with engines this small, it gives me the option of fuel economy or acceleration. 6 speed tranny shifts smooth and reverse has a back up camera the displays on the GPS. The Sound System is great and works seamlessly with an iPod. Just a couple of very small things that I would have liked on this car. It does not have a passenger express up and down window. I would have liked turn signals on the mirror and a LED light for the alarm. If you do not like strangers walking up to you at gas stations, grocery stores, etc, this is not your car. Mine is blue with style and tech packages and I cannot get out or in this car in public places without someone asking me about it. Great Job Hyundai."
Pros: "Sporty unique look, fun to drive, large trunk"
Cons: "Needs power seats,no dimmer for display screen"

"Loved the 2012 Veloster so much we bought 2 this year and just traded one in for the turbo. The turbo is worth the extra money! Love the push button start, all the added extras, rear camera has a wide view angle. Ride is a lot smoother than the 2012 version and extremely smooth handling. Thinking about trading in our other 2012 for another turbo!"
