5 of the best 2012 cars
Expected: £18,000 (2012)
Hot hatches were big in the ‘80s, but they’ve been usurped by toy cars with ridiculous body kits and stereos that only play bass. Hyundai’s redressing the balance with its 2012 Veloster, a 1.6L four-cylinder hatch that delivers 138bhp. It will, of course, be snapped up by teenagers who want to slap on a flimsy plastic spoiler, swap out the exhaust for a coal scuttle and install a stereo that sounds like it’s been submerged in a bathtub. At least Hyundai tried, eh?
