Build Your Own 2012 Hyundai Veloster, Fully-Loaded at $23,685

A fully-loaded 2012 Hyundai Veloster, the automaker’s upcoming front-wheel drive coupe, will cost you $23,685, inclusive of the $760 destination fee. That’s $5,625 more than the $18,060 base price announced last week.

Options and packaging for the 2012 Veloster are simple and straightforward. The configurator starts you off with two transmission choices, a no-cost, six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox for an extra $1250. Next up are the paint choices, though none add any extra cost to the car — even unique hues like Electrolyte Green or 26.2 Yellow.

Two package choices take up a bulk of the additional costs, starting with the $2000 Style Package which includes 18-inch wheels, a chrome grill, piano black interior accents, a panoramic roof, premium audio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leatherette door inserts. The Tech Package is also $2000 and includes unique 18-inch wheels with painted inserts, backup sensors, navigation with backup camera, auto headlights, and proximity keyless entry with push-button start. Accessories such as wheel locks and floor mats range from $50-95.

Opting for the base model Veloster, however, will still get you a lot of car for the $18,060 entry price. Standard features include six airbags, ABS, a tire pressure monitoring system, a 7-inch touchscreen (with RCA jacks for connecting video game consoles), Bluetooth phone connectivity, and Hyundai Blue Link, the automaker’s new telematics and connectivity system.
