Let’s begin with the concept of this car – the asymetrical configuration of the door is utterly odd. On the driver’s side, you get an elongated door just like a coupe, and on the other, 2 doors. One in the front, one in the back. This is to give the Veloster ‘dual personality’, where the 10 year old in an individual seeking for a sporty coupe is matched with everyday practicality needed by everyone.
The problem is, the number ‘3’ has not worked out well for automobiles. 3 wheels for example, the Reliant Robin was revolutionary! – At first. Then people started realising that it won’t take corners. Same goes to 3 doors, it looks odd. It looks, unbalanced somehow. But after 3 days spending time with it, it grew on us.
