That’s based on a £5000 deposit and a three-year contract at 5.9% APR, but in addition to your cash, Hyundai will make a further £1500 deposit contribution.
For your £132 per month you get a comprehensive level of equipment, too – the entry-level Veloster boasts a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, automatic headlights, Bluetooth with voice recognition, rear parking sensors, an iPod compatible stereo and climate control amongst its lengthy list of standard-fit kit.
For around £10 per month more, potential Veloster owners can opt for the Veloster Sport, which gets black leather heated seats, cruise control, keyless entry and a panoramic sunroof in addition to the standard car’s specification.
Performance from the 138bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine is good. Mated to the standard six-speed manual gearbox it’ll hit 62mph from rest in 9.7 seconds, yet return 43.5mpg combined with 137g/km CO2 emissions (with Hyundai’s Intelligent Stop Go system in Blue Drive trim), meaning £120 road tax; an excellent result for a sporty coupé.
At the end of the 36-month contract lease customers have the option of buying the car outright with a final payment of £6711, part exchanging the Hyundai Veloster, or returning the car, giving you excellent flexibility should your circumstances change.
It’s not just the Veloster that’s a tempting prospect from Hyundai this summer, either. The firm’s new Hyundai i20 supermini offers amazing levels of equipment and efficiency at a truly affordable price.
The base Hyundai i20 Classic 1.2 three-door model is available from £75 per month on a four-year 6.9% APR deal, with a customer deposit of £3000 and a £250 contribution from Hyundai.
Similarly, the rugged, stylish and practical the Hyundai Santa Fe is available alongside the Veloster and i20 at £223 per month – that’s for the entry-level five-seat 2.2 diesel Style model based on a customer deposit of £6500, with a £2000 input from Hyundai.
