Hyundai teases PM Lifestyle Veloster before SEMA debut

At this year SEMA show, Hyundai will be all about showing the potential of the all-new Veloster in the tuning market. Following the ARK Performance 2012 Hyundai Veloster, the Korean automaker today teased the PM Lifestyle Hyundai Veloster, which is developed in partnership with Universal Technical Institute.

“The Veloster is the perfect platform for enthusiasts looking to make everyday modifications to their vehicles and for students who are learning what it takes to be a mechanic,” said Jayke Milton, Build Coordination, PM Lifestyle. “It’s fairly simple to bolt equipment on and off the Veloster sub-frame, making it easy for people to make modifications in their own garages. Plus, the three-doors on the Veloster give it a unique look, making it a very exciting, stand-out car.”
