VELOSTER - Raptor ... all I ever need.
September 12, 2018
This is a car with style, class, and breeding, all of its own.
We bought this vehicle because we were downsizing to one car, pre our retirement. I cannot expresss enough the feel good factor of owning such a unique car. Employed as a risk manager, I understand many of the improvements that the Japanese brands have built into their brands. I studied the Japanese mentality, which I interpreted as being in control ( where possible ) of events, and removing or reducing human intervention.
Their thinking has become enviable in the world of cars, where mediocre vehicles were the norm. Who doesn't know the enviable reliability record of say, Toyota or Honda. Well this little Korean vehicle is up there in my mind.
A very efficient and reliable 1.6L petrol engine mated to a superb auto box. Smooth, and hungry for road, it just goes on and on.
Beautifully built, with a stunning full glass roof line, we are impressed by our little car every day. Full leather interior, heated seats, and great pricing for its full annual servicing, I would buy another.
Remove the badges and very few know what it is.
Love it so much, I would buy another low mileage example to store !
Definitely one of the best we have owned, for its quirky 4 door layout and Q car looks.
