2021 Hyundai Veloster Model Changes
The Hyundai Veloster carries over into 2021 relatively unchanged.
2021 Hyundai Veloster Value
The Veloster lands somewhere between compacts and hot hatches such as the Mazda3 and the larger Volkswagen Golf, MINI Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle. The 4-seater Veloster stands out by offering cavernous interior space for both cargo and passengers. Unlike a standard two-door hatchback, the Veloster is built with one long door on the driver's side and two shorter doors on the passenger side. The addition of the third passenger-side door makes it easier for those in the back seat to enter and exit the vehicle.
