In the car-centric city of Los Angeles, many have demanding requirements in the purchase of a new vehicle. They expect fuel economy, styling, and lots of techno-goodies. To step up to the plate in that arena, Hyundai is now offering the RE:MIX limited edition version of its Veloster three-door coupe.
Hyundai Motor America 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. The Veloster RE:MIX debuted at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show at Las Vegas in November 2012 and was inspired by Hyundai’s successful RE:MIX Lab program. Hyundai notes that the limited production coupe 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 enriched 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 floor mats.
Hyundai asserts that this rendition of the Veloster is a turn-key production offering with an aggressive demeanor, specifically for enthusiasts. Truly a “Re-Mix,” this Veloster is an impressive 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. Base price of the RE:MIX is $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,” noted the sales manager of Sterling McCall Hyundai. He added, “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 touts the 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.
