Despite launching in late 2011, Hyundai has managed to keep its funky Veloster hatchback relatively fresh in our minds, with the Turbo and R-Spec, several special edition models and even a cloth-roofed concept. Here at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, we’re seeing the next iteration of Veloster creativity, the limited-edition Re:Flex.
The Veloster Re:Flex isn’t a hugely different car from the standard hatchback, and the theme of this car is chrome, chrome, chrome. Hyundai has added 18-inch chrome-finished wheels, chrome door handles and chrome hood accents (yep). There’s also the usual Re:Flex badging on the actual hatch itself. Inside, the Re:Flex gets full leather seating, in either black or red, and the car can be purchased in a new Ice Pearl color, in addition to Century White, Vitamin C (orange), Ultra Black and Boston Red.
Hyundai is only offering the Re:Flex edition on the base Veloster, powered by a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine. All Re:Flex models are fitted with the company’s six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (sorry, manual fans).
Pricing has not been announced as of this writing, but the new Re:Flex model arrives in Hyundai showrooms this spring, with the full production run limited to 3,000 units. For more information, feel free to peruse Hyundai’s press blast, below.
