Hyundai testing facelifted Veloster Turbo in Germany

2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Love it or hate it, you have to admit that Hyundai went against the cookie-cutter norm when it unveiled the Veloster in 2011. And to many eyes, its oddball shape is still refreshingly original. But in the three and a half years since, Hyundai has moved its design language onwards, so it's about time the Korean automaker bring the quirky three-door (or novel four-door, depending on the angle from which you look at it) into the fold. And that's just what it appears to be doing in these latest spy shots.

Though it's hard to tell much from underneath the heavy camouflage, it's clear from these spy shots that this is indeed the Veloster, and given the center-exit dual exhaust tips, it seems to be the Turbo model and not the base naturally aspirated version. It seems to be wearing a bigger grille like the one Hyundai put on the latest Genesis, among others, and new bumpers front and back as well. The half-door on the right side does appear to be carrying over, it's wearing new wheels, and we're told there seems to be something afoot inside the cabin as well - likely revolving around an updated infotainment system.

Whether there are any consequential mechanical changes as well, we don't know. That said, development seems to be in a fairly advanced stage, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a refreshed Veloster on the show stand sometime later this year or early next at the latest.

370-Horsepower Hyundai Veloster Turbo – Pictures + Video

Hyundai and Fox Marketing Cars have teamed up to deliver the most powerful Veloster Turbo street machine ever. The car was seen at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

At the core of Fox Marketing’s engine was Hyundai’s 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder direct-injected T-GDI engine.

Fox added a number of advanced engine components to create an absolute beast.

Among those additions were a new 845 Motorsports turbo upgrade, BorgWarner EFR turbo, front-mounted intercooler, AEM water/methanol injection system, VP Racing 101-octane performance fuel and an ECU tune from SeoulfulRacing, all of which adds up to an impressive 370 horsepower.

The goal was to keep the Veloster Turbo concept close to the ground and flat when cornering at high speed, which was achieved by adding a UNIQ Performance strut brace, ImportShark chassis bracing and fully-adjustable ARK Performance coil-over suspension.

The car has incredible stopping power, thanks to the addition of WP Pro EX6 6-piston front calipers with carbon fiber ducting and 13.6-inch wavy-cut rotors.

The Veloster Turbo gets an aggressive styling with a number of exterior modifications that are in line with the changes made to the other areas of the car.

BASF created a hand-mixed paint called R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl, to deliver an eye-catching exterior color.

An ImportShark front lip spoiler, Hyundai Genesis fog lights, and custom front and rear fascias round out the cool exterior changes.

2013 Hyundai i10 gets Frankfurt showing, official engine lineup

2013 Hyundai i10

Hyundai strutted its tiny but fashionable i10 onto the Frankfurt floor today, showing off the new, second-generation city car to the assembled media. The i10 was originally unveiled in August, although at the time, we didn't have much info on powertrains or other items.

Europe, where the i10 will be sold, gets a pair of gas-powered engines from Hyundai's Kappa family, displacing 998cc and 1.25 liters, respectively. The smaller, three-cylinder engine is limited to just 65 horsepower and 69 pound-feet of torque. It's also available with an LPG option, which adds one hp at the cost of three lb-ft of torque. Opt for the 1.25-liter, four-cylinder mill and you'll get a positively reckless 85 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are available with the driver's choice of a five-speed stick or a four-speed automatic.

Lack of thrust aside, can we all agree that the i10 is a sharp looking city car? It's compact dimensions belie a reasonable amount of cabin space, all in a wrapper of the stylish, fluid lines that Hyundai is known for. We'd argue it looks even better in these pictures than it did the first time we saw it. Hop up top for our live images from Frankfurt, or scroll down to the bottom for an official press release and images from Hyundai. The company's European arm as also assembled quite a number of Q&A style videos about the new car, for your edification.

3 Reasons Why Veloster’s The Best Hyundai For Young Drivers

Young and newly qualified drivers looking after a car that’s slick on both the outside and the inside may not turn to Hyundai as their first point of call.

However, that’s not to say that there’s nothing on offer for younger drivers who want something that looks good, performs well and doesn’t cost the earth.

The 2013 Veloster coupe might not be the most obvious choice for a newly qualified driver, but it certainly has a lot to offer.

Hyundai Veloster Performance

With a base 1,6L GDI four-cylinder engine, the Veloster certainly isn’t a speed machine.

Some might argue though, that in the hands of an inexperienced driver, that’s actually a positive thing.

For those wanting something that’s a little quicker off the mark, then you can opt for the turbo model which will take the power up to 186 horsepower, but it will cost you.

As a feature that’s not particularly important if your car is only going to be used for getting from A to B, you may as well save yourself the extra cash.

Unique Exterior Design

Best car for young drivers 300x172 3 Reasons Why Velosters The Best Hyundai For Young DriversHyundai Veloster caused quite a stir upon its release thanks to its asymmetric doors.

With two on the kerb side and one on the road side, the unusual design caught the attention of both the press and consumers.

Otherwise, the exterior is smart, but really nothing to write home about.

Whilst you might have been after something a little more eye-catching, drawing attention to the luxuriousness of your car isn’t always a good thing as it can make you a target for thieves.

Interior

Where the Veloster really comes into its own is with its interior. A lot of thought and effort was clearly put into the design, and the result is a car that comes with an iPod compatible stereo and Bluetooth speakerphone as standard.

Upgrade packages can increase its cool points dramatically, and the top of the range tech package includes navigation, a rear-view camera, push-button ignition, automatic headlights and body colour wheel inserts.

So, if you’re looking to spend less than £20,000 on a car that performs well, looks great and meets all your technological needs, then the Hyundai Veloster is well worth considering.

It might not be the most powerful, but unless you want your insurance to by sky-high, that’s a good thing.

If you’re yet to take your test and are lusting over the Veloster, the sooner you book your practical test online, the better!
