Korean sportsman intends to become a real hot hatch. And it will only have turbocharged engines
Before you ask: yes, the second generation Hyundai Veloster continues with three doors. But most importantly: slow fame should stay behind.
The South Korean manufacturer has designated two engines for the model at its launch: the 1.4 Kappa turbo with approximately 140 hp and the 1.6 Gamma turbo of 204 hp.
Both will have automatic double-clutch seven-speed gearbox, but only the 1.6 will have a six-speed manual gearbox.
Later on, the Veloster N will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 275-hp engine, but still with front-wheel drive.
This all accompanied by a new design, as revealed by the glitches of the Paultan website and @davescarpix , in Instagram.
In the front, the sporty now has narrower headlights with LED daytime running lights, bumper with spoiler and air intakes on the sides and a strange variation of the current hexagonal grid of the current Hyundai.
Rear side windows are even smaller and, from the little seen from the rear, it is to be expected that the rear porch is also smaller. The lanterns, however, remain in the same position and still invade the sides.
The official presentation of the new generation of the Hyundai Veloster is expected to take place at the Detroit Motor Show in the second half of January.
