The Hyundai Veloster is a compact sport coupe which began sales in the summer of 2011. It became available for retail sale in North American in the fall of 2011. It was unveiled on January 10, 2011, at the Detroit Auto Show, and fills the void left when Hyundai discontinued the Tiburon after the 2008 model year.

The car is different from many competitors as it has one door on the driver side and two on the passenger side. The Veloster uses Hyundai's new BlueLink system, which is similar to OnStar used in GM vehicles, providing customers with automatic crash notification, vehicle diagnostics, etc
