This car is called the Veloster -- as in "velocity." With its coupe-like look and blacked-out window pillars, it's designed to resemble a motorcycle helmet.
You might notice that it also resembles a doorstop. Actually, that's appropriate because, while this car has its good points, speed is not among them.
The Veloster, ironically, feels like one of the most underpowered cars I've driven in years. Not as in "Gee, it would be nice if this car had a little more guts," but as in, "Is something wrong?"
There is more to a car, of course, than raw performance so click through for an overview of everything the Veloster does have to offer. Just keep in mind that, despite its looks and its name, adrenaline surges are missing from the menu.
It sounds like an oxymoron, but the new Chevrolet Sonic is a really good General Motors subcompact and it's the only vehicle in that class currently built in the United States
