The Hyundai Veloster arrived in 2012 and is the Korean company's latest attempt to build a coupe without compromise - and first impressions are good. It's a stylish, well-proportioned sports car with plenty of space for four adults inside. Factor in the large boot and handy rear door, and you’ve got a sleek coupe with the practicality of your average small family car. However, the disappointing engine line up holds the Veloster back, and the lack of a diesel option will put off high-mileage drivers. It's a shame, because given its agile handling and comfortable ride, the Veloster could easily challenge the VW Scirocco and Audi TT in the hard-fought, desirable coupe market. That said, if you can live with the increased running costs and slightly lacklustre performance, the Veloster is a stylish alternative to the mainstream.
