Hyundai has shown off a new version of its Veloster at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. Unlike many of the interesting cars shown off at SEMA, this one is actually going into production. The Veloster RE:MIX is scheduled to bring its interesting style elements to U.S. dealerships in December.

Hyundai has its crosshairs aimed squarely at the young car buyer with this one. It has tons of style elements and appointments designed to make the young car seeker happy. Move over Scion TC, Hyundai is coming for you.

First, let's talk about the exterior – after all, that's what's going to grab attention first. The Veloster RE:MIX features a chrome-accented grille, LED tail lights, projector headlights, fog lights, and of course, a body kit to give it a little extra flair. Hyundai is also offering 18-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

As far as colors go, the Sprint Gray is exclusive to the RE:MIX. Hyundai is also offering five colors from the standard Veloster: Century White, 26.2 Yellow, Marathon Blue, Ultra Black, and Boston Red. The graphics package shown in the picture above is also available as an option.

The inside has plenty of toys that you would often find in a more expensive car. It comes equipped with a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen and a Dimension premium audio system featuring eight speakers, including an eight-inch subwoofer. All in all, the audio system is pushing 450 watts, and has inputs for iDevices, USB, and a standard 3.5 mm auxiliary. Also featured are RE:MIX-exclusive mats and LED lighting.

The car is all about style, and unfortunately, the engine isn't going to blow anyone away. It comes equipped with a 138 hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. This is the same engine that powers the standard Veloster.

Considering the slew of options available, the price point on the new Veloster is pretty solid. The six-speed manual comes it at US$19,900, and the DCT automatic comes in at $21,150. Of course, those prices don't include the standard $775 freight charge.
