Blog: Vacation With The 2012 Hyundai Veloster

My wife, Catheryn, and I recently spent the week in Arizona visiting some family. Our car for the week: a Vitamin C (read: orange—and it got a lot of looks from passersby) Hyundai Veloster. I was happy to finally get a chance to spend some time with the car, as I had missed out on any decent driving when we had it at our Michigan office. When I picked up the vehicle, I was instantly impressed.

For about a year now, we’ve been trying our best to rationalize the intersection of cars that are both environmentally responsible (insofar as they consume fewer resources over their life spans) and genuinely fun to drive. We call this intersection Greenformance, and you’ve probably read at least one or two of Tom Martin’s columns on the concept’s finer points here in the pages of Winding Road, too. With the auto industry just now starting to produce some of the vehicles that were first conceived of in the sweaty-palmed days of $145-per-barrel oil and $4-plus gasoline, there are more chances than ever before for cars that can hit the Greenformance sweet spot.
