Hyundai Veloster Teaser Shows Door Layout

Hyundai is teasing the Veloster one more time (of course, this might not be the last time when the car comes out of the shadow) ahead of the vehicle’s imminent Detroit Auto Show debut.

This time, the South Korean automotive producer has chosen to confirm the fact that the car will come with one door on the driver’s side and two on the passenger’s one. As you can see, the design delicacies don’t stop here, as the car also come with a split rear window.

Hyundai has previously confirmed (also using a teaser) that the vehicle will use a direct-injected engine and use a double-clutch transmission, claiming that the car will return a fuel efficiency of 40 mpg (5.8 liters per 100 km) for the combined cycle. Various media sources indicate that Hyundai will fit the car with a naturally aspirated 1.6 liter engine developing 140 hp, but we’ll have to wait until next week to be sure.

Let’s take some time to remember how the automaker described the Veloster concept: "With Veloster, we wanted to try something really different. We're keenly aware that we need radically new products for the Y-generation, the first-time twenties something buyer," said Oh Suk-Geun, Hyundai's vice president of design. "This is really a bold new direction," he added.

autoevolution will be attending the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
