Hyundai revealed a new stylized version of the Veloster known as the RE:Flex Edition, which follows in the footsteps of the RE:Mix Edition–a model that sat in between the base and top-spec Turbo model as those looking for a little more car, minus the extra power.
Similarly to the outgoing RE:Mix Edition, the new 2015 Hyundai Velsoter RE:Flex Edition comes with a bespoke Ice Pearl exterior, chrome accents, LED lighting, the choice of red or black interior, and lots and lots of badging.
Power is still provided by the base 1.6L Gamma naturally-aspirated four-banger mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. Limited to just 3,000 units, the Veloster RE:Flex Edition starts at $21,650.
