The new US-spec Hyundai Veloster Turbo has been given its official debut at the Detroit motor show. A European version of the car will also follow, possibly after a launch at the Geneva motor show in March.
Powering the US Veloster Turbo is a new turbocharged 1.6-litre direct-injection petrol engine with 198bhp. Hyundai claims its new go-faster 1+2 doored coupe has a best in class power to weight ratio.
Transmission options include a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. When equipped with the former, the Veloster Turbo returns a claimed 45.6mpg combined. Other powertrain features include a sports-tuned exhaust note.
Completing the mechanical upgrades is a sports-tuned steering system.
The styling has also undergone an overhaul. The Turbo features a unique front-end design, with a new grille, bumper and fog lights. There's also a matte grey paint finish, 18in alloys, and new LED headlights.
Inside, there are leather sports seats, and a Turbo-exclusive Graphite Black colour scheme, which also gets special Turbo badging.
