17. Hyundai Veloster
The Veloster is that one car that you know about but never really cared about. It’s been on the market for a while now. And while it originally generated buzz, there is none now. The Veloster is downright weird-looking, and Hyundai isn’t sure how to market the thing. Original models were plagued with reliability issues and there was a swarm of unhappy customers. After these issues were ironed out the car has never really recovered. It’s pretty cool to look at but for the price tag, there are more appealing cars on the road. The Veloster is a hatchback and was only available in a few configurations.
Like most halo cars, the Veloster is more of a talking point then anything. The Veloster offered the right amount of features for most drivers. But the price tends to scare people away, as do the original reports of reliability issues. The Veloster just isn’t a justifiable purchase for most people who want a fun-to-drive car. You’re better off finding a used Hyundai Genesis coupe, which came with the optional V8 engine.
