9. Hyundai Veloster

2013-Hyundai-Veloster-09

The next car on this list comes from a planet beyond the Kuiper Belt where everything is lopsided. Roads are wider going in one direction than the other, buildings look like something Pablo Picasso painted and playing cards are all different sizes. The Hyundai Veloster is a sporty compact that hails from the Asymmetric Planet.

The vehicle’s signature element is the layout of its doors. There are two access hatches curbside for passengers and one elongated door for the driver. It’s an intriguing layout that’s unique to say the least. It kind of brings to mind the 1998 Ford Windstar minivan. Instead of a proper slider, engineers stretched the driver’s door by about six inches to make it easier to get into the back seats. Will the Veloster have a sliding portal at some point? It’d be cool if it did!

    Variety is the spice of life right? I’m glad we have “weird”, interesting cars rolling around. It sure beats a world filled with Beige Camrys.

    I agree with every entry, but am surprised that the Nissan Juke didn’t get at least an ‘honorable’ mention. Maybe it was too obvious. Haha! Nice job Craig!!

    Thanks, Miradart! Yes, there are 11 pages because of the “title” page.

    I wonder why the GMC Hummer wasn’t listed. Everyone knows it’s a Hummer when they see that baby drive by.

    My car ranked #1 :) maybe most people are boring for not liking every single car on this list. I love all of them except for that ford van…I don’t do vans

    Also had an FJ when they came out but traded it for more towing capacity. So, “Take me to your leader”. And not Barry, we don’t suffer fools well.
