Top 10 Detroit motor show cars - Hyundai Veloster Turbo
The Veloster Turbo could address at least some of those concerns.
The new performance variant gets a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine producing around 201bhp in UK trim, and Hyundai is also promising suspension and steering tweaks that'll sharpen the handling (they're unlikely to improve the ride, mind you). It should give the Veloster the grunt required to take on more potent Minis, Vauxhall Astra GTCs and VW Sciroccos – and lift it beyond mild three-door Renault Meganes.
The Turbo is certainly no shrinking violet, either; the hot Veloster's curio looks are likely to split more opinions than ever, thanks to spoilers, beefier bumpers and wheelarch extensions.
