Hyundai Veloster Turbo Has a Major Performance Upgrade

Hyundai Veloster Turbo Has a Major Performance Upgrade

Hyundai told us that it plans to dial up the horsepower on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe to make room for the new Hyundai Veloster Turbo, which is due out next summer. Hyundai confirmed on Monday at the 2011 SEMA Show that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo will debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. “It’s official,” wrote Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik in the automakers Twitter feed. “Hyundai Veloster Turbo is coming.

More details in January at the Detroit Auto Show.” He said Hyundai would then be able to offer a front-wheel-drive turbocharged coupe with Hyundai Veloster Turbo and a rear-wheel-drive turbocharged coupe with Genesis, he also said that the decision to introduce the Veloster availability was not related to complaints among automotive journalists that the Veloster is underpowered.

The once-rumored and finally-confirmed Hyundai Veloster Turbo sports hatch has been given an early online unveiling today, ahead of its official debut at tomorrow’s Detroit Auto Show. Full details on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo specs will be revealed in the coming hours, but the tidbits and images available right now are tasty enough.

The images shown here reveal that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo will get a unique front-end, doing away with the body-colored panel that splits the regular model’s grille, along with restyled fog light bezels and a longer front lip. Similar tweaks have been made at the Hyundai Veloster Turbo rear end, with new deep-set reflector housings surrounding a more prominent rear diffuser and a pair of circular exhaust tips.

The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Though the Hyundai Veloster dimensions may look like a hot hatch, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo lacked the power needed to live up to that billing; but that might change. Hyundai unveiled the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo at the North American International Auto Show, with 63 more horsepower and 72 more lb-ft than the non-turbo and a few exterior tweaks that could make the Hyundai Veloster Turbo eligible for a spot in the hot hatch pantheon.

The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo is due to arrive in the U.S. this summer with a 138-hp, 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder, and now some spy shooters have captured a prototype that just might be the promised turbocharged version. We have prior confirmation that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo will get a turbo’s, 210-hp version of the Veloster’s little four on the Continent, and we have inkling that we’ll see it here, too. While we haven’t yet had a chance to drive a workaday Hyundai Veloster Turbo, we don’t see how more power couldn’t be more fun.

Competitors Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Hyundai names the Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic Si, and Mini Cooper S (and Clubman S) as the Hyundai Veloster Turbo main competitors, and claims its car has a better power-to-weight ratio than all of them. At 2800 pounds, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo is 77 pounds lighter than the Civic Si and 234 pounds lighter than VW’s GTI, according to Hyundai. This weight advantage could give the Hyundai Veloster Turbo an edge in the performance department.

Apart from the increased power in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, the only other major performance upgrade is the steering – another area that we’ve found lacking on the base car. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo price is expected will begin around $20,000. The base 2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo with a 138-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission starts at $18,060, including a $760 destination charge.
