Spied: 2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Spy Shots

Spy shots arise of the upcoming 2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

South Korean automaker Hyundai is planning a faster and more powerful version of its Veloster coupe, and based on these latest spy shots, it looks like upcoming trim will be high-performance-oriented. The photos show the hood of the mule, where the basics for a turbocharger and intercooler are visible for all to see. The Veloster is currently available only with a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter GDI gasoline engine. However, the bodywork changes on this prototype show a more serious looking car.

The twin exhaust pipes also give indication of the new sportier model, along with the front-end featuring a larger restyled grille with extra openings to provide more cooling to the tuned engine. It remains a mystery for now on exactly what chassis changes will be made, but the prototype Veloster is wearing slimline 40-section low-profile tires. The Hyundai Veloster made its European debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and Hyundai expects to sell around 4,000-6,000 units in the UK each year, but US dealers aim to shift sales figures much higher.
