Hyundai have had quite a successful history of building coupes, yet they decided to do something different with the Veloster. Despite the dramatic looks suggesting impracticality, the Koreans had a trick up their sleeves. By giving the Veloster a third passenger door, they created a car that offered decent access to the rear seats without compromising style.
Although relatively low sales figures led to Hyundai axing the Veloster at the tail end of 2014, owners have found it to be a reliable little head turner that boasts plenty of standard equipment and a surprising amount of practicality. If you like your coupes with a bit of muscle, there was even a turbocharged variant offering tighter handling and a lot more shove. With strong equipment levels, great reliability and reasonable economy, the Veloster could be something you'll buy with both your head and heart.
At the end of the day, most people buy coupes because they want to stand out from the crowd. Thanks to the Veloster's relative rarity, that's something you'll be doing a lot. Combine this with good build quality, excellent reliability and surprising amounts of practicality and there's a lot to recommend it.
Sure, it isn't the fastest of cars, even with the full fat turbocharged motor. It's also true that the handling is more surefooted than sporty, though for most buyers it'll be thrilling enough. Ultimately then, what we have here is that rarest of things: a quirky choice that's also very sensible. On that basis, the Veloster is a worthy second hand coupe contender.
