FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (February 7, 2014) – Hyundai introduced the all-new 2014 Veloster RE:FLEX during the 2014 Chicago Auto Show Social Media Preview. The RE:FLEX Edition Veloster is the second limited-run version of the Veloster, following last year’s RE:MIX Edition. With a limited production of only 3,000 units, buyers of the Veloster will own a truly unique model.

The RE:FLEX Edition Veloster offers a bit more style and exclusive features including black or red leather interior, projector headlights with LED accents, LED taillights, illuminated door sills, chrome 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome hood accents and chrome door handles. Safety features include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), steering sensors and a rearview camera.

“It generates style and emotion as well as gives consumers something unique in the marketplace,” said Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager for Hyundai.

The RE:FLEX is powered by a 138-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and uses a six-speed manual or six speed dual-clutch transmission to deliver up to 31 mpg combined. The RE:FLEX’s dual clutch transmission, spacious interior and Blue Link destination search set this special edition apart.

The Veloster RE:FLEX is expected to go on sale in spring 2014.
