The Azera combines luxury features with advanced technologies and bold design philosophies.

The Veloster Turbo was designed to appeal to a younger demographic while offering a “modern premium” look and feel. The Veloster Turbo bridges the gap between a versatile interior space and the strong appeal of a sports car. It offers buyers a sleek and distinctive design in an innovative three-door coupe form that provides practicality and flexibility as well as driving pleasure.
