Earlier this week, Hyundai Motor America (HMA) announced that the 2016 Hyundai Veloster was named one of the “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000” by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. It was recognized for its unique style and engaging driving dynamics. Here at your Hyundai dealers near National City, Kearny Mesa Hyundai, our team is excited about this great new Hyundai model and knows Southern California drivers will love it!

The editors at Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com select the vehicles on the “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000” list based on two criteria: fun-to-drive and fun-to-own. Each vehicle also must have a vehicle of $18,000 or less. Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com, had this to say about the 2016 Hyundai Veloster:

With one door on the driver’s side and two doors on the other side, the Veloster is among the most uniquely configured cars on the road. But what makes the Veloster so compelling is that it mixes that standout style with surprising practicality and affordability.

The 2016 Hyundai Veloster offers cutting-edge powertrain technologies, youthful style, impressive fuel economy, and spirited performance that drivers will love! Once inside, you’ll find refined materials, comfortable seats, and great tech features. Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, HMA, had this to say about the honor:

The Veloster does an outstanding job of combining cool, fun-to-drive, unique styling and advanced technologies, all while delivering value. We will continue to place emphasis on designing vehicles that meet the hearts and minds of our customers.
