The edgier execution was the Veloster, a sporty coupé catering to the unique wants of the Y-generation. Joining the sporty concept car was the FD Elantra wagon, styled at the company's European Design Centre in Russelsheim, Germany, marking Hyundai's long-awaited return to this popular segment.

Styled at Hyundai's Design and Technical Centre at Namyang, the Veloster coupe (codenamed HND-3) is the third in a series of daring concept cars to be developed by the company's main styling studio in Korea. The Veloster name, a compound of velocity and roadster evokes the sporty characteristics of a classic two-plus-two. A panoramic glass roof and other futuristic styling cues help project a high-tech image.

Designed to appeal to the Y-generation, Veloster combines simple, iconic design with good value and robust construction. At just 4.1 metres long, 1790mm wide and 1450mm high, Veloster is 65mm longer than Accent hatch but 95mm wider and 20mm lower. It is powered by a 2.0 litre variant of Hyundai's all-alloy Theta twin cam four cylinder engine matched to a five speed automatic and driving the front set of its 20 inch wheels shod with super low profile 245/35 tyres.

Hyundai's vice president of design, Oh Suk-Geun, said: "With Veloster, we wanted to try something really different. We're keenly aware that we need radically new models for the Y-generation, the first-time twenties something buyer, and this is really a bold new direction."
