Just saw this in an article on yahoos homepage regarding hatchbacks.



Looks awesome! Although the front of the car is kind of out too much if that makes sense.

GT Hatch reborn? :D

More from the article:

Hyundai wants this little hatchback to be as cool as a Mini Cooper but more affordable and practical.

While styling and cool factor are subjective, it does have a larger interior and trunk than the Mini.

What makes it odd is that it has one door on the driver side and two doors on the passenger side. The idea was to keep the shape of a sporty two-door, but to add a rear door on the passenger side for easier access to the back seat.

Hyundai used motorcycles as a design inspiration: The car’s wraparound windshield resembles a helmet visor, and the center console is in the shape of a motorcycle’s gas tank.

A 138-hp four-cylinder engine should make the lightweight Veloster pretty peppy. Hyundai expects it to get 40 mpg on the highway. The car goes on sale this summer.
