2012 Hyundai Veloster B-roll footage – Click above to watch video after the jump

B-roll footage isn't necessarily the most exciting visual or aural experience, but it allows us to see new production models strutting their stuff out on the road. Hyundai is wasting no time in getting the B-roll footage out of the recently debuted 2012 Veloster, and here we see a pair of brightly-colored three-door coupes mixing it up on a desert test track.

As it typical with B-roll footage, there's no music and the only sound comes from what the microphones picked up. Our suggestion? Go to YoutubeDoubler.com and spice it up yourself, though you know you're just going to add music from the movie Inception. Click past the jump to see the 2012 Hyundai Veloster in action.

      A 40 MPG car that is fun to toss around corners, can carry cargo or people without climbing over the front seats, and is extremely well equipped for under 20k? A lot of people are going to want this. It seems for any one of these things a competing car can do better, it does three of them worse.
      A 530 mile cruising range doesn't hurt either.

      They screwed this up with that third door on the passenger side. The asymmetry is just annoying. Why do all the manufacturers have such an aversion to two door vehicles (other than Honda and Mini). Sales of two door vehicles such as the Civic, Accord, Mini, and Golf are fantastic. Many people, similar to me, prefer two large, adult size doors. It makes ingress and egress much easier, and doesn't have the stupid B pillar taking up shoulder room or creating a blind spot. And honestly, I can't imagine anyone buying small vehicles like the Fiesta, or Elantra, or this Veloster, for hauling passengers. I would buy a second, larger vehicle for hauling passengers.

      A better approach would have been to simply make a two door variant of the Elantra, but keep the same lines and make it a hatchback. It would have been a beautiful vehicle.

      And bring back the independent suspensions on all your vehicles! Enough with the cheap crap like torsion beams and drum brakes. Quit confusing "small" car with "cheap" car. I very much like small cars, but I want all the mechanical goodness in the engine transmission and suspension. And Hyundai as well as the others aren't quite cutting it in the suspension department. And no, I'm not looking at track times, I want good ride quality that comes from an independent suspension, preferably mounted on an isolated sub-platform.

      I wish it would B-roll-right-out-of-existence... this thing is hideous, and in 5 years time is going to be worth pennies on the used car lot when its class-less design and plasticky interior age very ungracefully.

      The more I look at the Veloster the more I am liking the design. It reminds me a mix of Honda designs like the CRX and the CR-Z but in its own unique way. This design is starting to grow on me as well.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, it's a mix of Hondas.

        Go look at the 2006 Honda REMIX concept.

      Meh.

      The looks dont get me either..looks flashy and cheap at the same time.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Who else thinks this thing looks like what a 21st century AMC gremlin would look like?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Someone tell me what happens at the end - I think I fell asleep around 1:14.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Okay. Well, someone woke you up, and reminded you that you really aren't that funny.
        Personally, I loved every minute of it, and especially the desert backdrop.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Try watching again starting at 1:55, it is actually interesting then. They do some trick driving there.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Why didn't they just make this a 4 door hatch? I'm not suggesting it would of made it any more attractive, but it might of made it less... awkward? Maybe?
      • 4 Years Ago
      This car just isn't doing it for me.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yep - same. Unfortunate because Hyundai has had a couple of knockouts recently...I find there's just too much going on here. It might be cool for about a year, but 3 years into your finance you'd be looking out into the driveway with sad eyes wishing you had've saved up a couple grand more for the Mustang V6.

        I don't see it that way at all. Mustang is a solid $5,000 more than this to start and I don't think the two would be cross shopped at all. This gets great MPG, the Mustang gets good. Mustang is RWD and larger, this is FWD and smaller. This is a hatchback, the Mustang is not. These two vehicles really aren't that similar.

        Genesis vs. Mustang, I am sure there are a lot of people cross shopping those two.

      If anything, they're showing that the car won't tip over like a lot of other cars that are similar in size will.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It's been said a lot in the last week or so BUT this is what Honda SHOULD have done with the CR-Z...especially with Honda's lame hybrid system...Conventional small displacement 4 that will get impressive mileage...Still, both the Veloster and CR-Z are chick cars...
