Honda and Toyota, prepare yourselves. Hyundai has been at the forefront of innovation over the last couple of years and they show no signs of slowing down.

Their newest creation, the 2012 Hyundai Veloster is rolling onto dealer lots this week. Just don’t expect to get your hands on one anytime soon. There’s a long waiting list of orders that need to be filled first (trust me, I checked). With a double-scooped aggressive front end,  dual centered chrome-tipped exhaust outlet, sport-tuned suspension, hidden 3rd side passenger door, and 40 MPG on the highway, it’s hard to argue with a price tag starting at just above $17k.

Safety is taken care of too, including Vehicle Stability Management system (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control system (TCS) and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Want options? How about a panoramic sunroof, proximity key entry, push button start, 18-inch alloy wheels with painted inserts, 7-inch multifunction touchscreen with navigation system, and even backup warning sensors.

Gentlemen, this isn’t the Hyundai we once knew and you better believe that’s a good thing.
