News from Hyundai, Feb. 22, 2013
Hyundai Motor America recently delivered the first of its new Veloster RE:MIX limited edition models to its excited new owner at Sterling McCall Hyundai in Houston, Texas. Hyundai began selling its special edition production Veloster in mid-February alongside a comprehensive offering of stylish, well-equipped and efficient sedans, coupes and crossovers, including the all-new 2013 Santa Fe SUV and the stylish and fun-to-drive 2013 Elantra GT.
Inspired by Hyundai’s successful RE:MIX Lab program, Hyundai first introduced the special edition RE:MIX production Veloster to consumers at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show at Las Vegas in November 2012. This limited edition production Veloster features an aggressive sporty exterior with a unique body kit, 18-inch dark gunmetal-finish alloy wheels, LED headlight accents and taillights, and unique RE:MIX badging. The interior is enhanced with a 450-watt premium Dimension audio system, push-button start with proximity key, leather steering wheel and shift knob, unique interior light kit and RE:MIX floormats.
This Veloster is a turn-key production offering with an aggressive demeanor, specifically for enthusiasts. Truly a “Re-Mix,” this Veloster is a cool blend of exclusive features and options that synthesize to create a distinctive lifestyle offering from Hyundai. In addition to the exclusive Sprint Gray exterior color, a simplified color palate of five additional Veloster colors will be available: Century White, 26.2 Yellow, Marathon Blue, Ultra Black and Boston Red. The Veloster RE:MIX starts at $20,845 for the manual transmission model (including a $795 freight charge).
“The Veloster RE:MIX represents the ultimate Hyundai lifestyle coupe in terms of style, design and performance,” said Sales Manager, Sterling McCall Hyundai. “Many Hyundai customers today are looking for individual design expression, exclusivity and smartphone connectivity. Veloster RE:MIX delivers a truly unique sporty appearance, premium branded audio and abundant tech features.”
Hyundai’s Veloster is an innovative compact coupe that features ground-breaking design, with a unique curbside third door for easy rear-seat access, Hyundai’s Blue Link® telematics system, Pandora® internet radio with seven-inch touch-screen display and a new 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine. Veloster continues to attract Hyundai’s next generation of buyers, earning numerous accolades including Bloomberg’s “Best Economy Car,” one of Kelley Blue Book’s “10 Coolest New Cars under $18,000” and Autobytel’s Car of the Year for 2012.
