Background
This is a delightfully eccentric budget coupe, one distinguished by having asymmetric rear doors: there's only one and it's on the right-hand side. For more information on the Veloster, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
If most of Hyundai's current line-up is all goody two-shoes and sensible Volkswagen-spec motoring on the cheap, the Veloster is where the Koreans let their hair down a bit. This is a fun, small and above all affordable sporting coupe with a clever trick up its sleeve: it's got asymmetric rear doors. Okay, so it's not the best set up for UK roads - the single back door opens on to the roadside, rather than the kerb, but hey. It's fun to drive, though, in a cheeky, nippy sort of way. No, it won't worry any hot hatch drivers, but this is more of an event car than a purebred enthusiasts' special.
