Hyundai to Build Turbo Veloster with Around 204hp

Hyundai will soon be offering the Veloster with the engine it needed from the beginning.

According to an official Twitter post coming from Hyundai CEO John Krafcik, the South Korean automaker will be unveiling a turbocharged Veloster at this year's Detroit Auto Show. The official announcement will be made this week at SEMA, but it's been known for a while that Hyundai was working on this project. Power for the turbocharged Veloster will come from Hyundai's all-new 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder that will have around 204hp, which is 66 more horsepower than the base model.

We also expect Hyundai to add some additional features like better brakes and suspension improvements. So all told, this turbocharged Veloster could be one sweet ride. Krafcik also stated that the Genesis Coupe will also be updated for 2012 with more power for both the 2.0-liter turbo-four base engine and the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6, with the latter likely to have 333hp that's currently available for the Genesis sedan. Full details will be available as we get closer to this year's Detroit Auto Show in January.
