2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Live Pics: 2012 Detroit Auto Show

Follow Bengt

Hyundai's new three-door Veloster sporty coupe is very appealing in so many ways. Its unique three-door layout allows back-seat passengers to enter more easily than in a standard coupe, thanks to an added (smaller) rear passenger-side door; it offers more connectivity and better interior appointments than are typical in this class; and its refined engine delivers top-notch refinement. The only issue, we've argued, is that the Veloster could simply use a little more power.

Well, Hyundai has that more than handled with the 2013 Veloster Turbo, unveiled here at the Detroit Auto Show. With 201 horsepower and way more accessible torque, the twin-scroll-turbocharged version of Hyundai's 'Gamma' 1.6-liter, direct-injection four-cylinder engine should give the Veloster a very different driving personality.

As you can see, Hyundai has enhanced the exterior appearance of the Veloster Turbo as well. In addition to the unique matte paint shown here, the Veloster Turbo has a larger trapezoidal grille, more aggressive air dam, and a blacked-out rear fascia with large, round exhaust outlets.
