Detroit 2012: Hyundai Veloster Turbo
* Hyundai Veloster Turbo at Detroit 2012 * Turbocharged petrol engine; beefier looks * UK version due in autumn 2012...
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo was unveiled at the Detroit motor show 2012.
The Veloster Turbo at the show was a US-spec car, but Hyundai sources have told us that a European-spec version is due in the UK later this year.
Apart from a matt grey finish, the Veloster Turbo on show at Detroit has a sportier look than the recently-launched Veloster, with beefier bumpers and wheelarches and extra spoilers. The UK version is likely to get a similar makeover.
A turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine provides the power, with the UK version likely to have around 201bhp. Suspension and steering modifications are also expected, to provide sharper handling.
The Hyundai Veloster has just gone on sale in the UK, and you can find out what What Car? readers thought of it here.
