The sporty Veloster hatchback has three doors, with the right-side rear door improving access to the tight rear seat. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine delivers adequate power, and the precise manual shifter has low effort throws. A dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual and a conventional six-speed manual are available. Handling is responsive and secure. While the ride is quite stiff, it isn't punishing. Despite the split rear window, visibility to the rear is decent. Features include Pandora internet radio and voice-activated text messaging. A more powerful 201-hp turbo four and six-speed automatic are available. First year reliability has been above average.
