2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo was officially unveiled today at the NAIAS in Detroit. The South Korean maker has unique three-door layout allows back-seat passengers to enter more easily than in a standard coupe. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo will arrive in dealer showrooms this summer.
“The Turbo further broadens Veloster’s hero role in the Hyundai line-up to attract our next generation of buyers”, said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Hyundai Motor America. “It’s powerful, high-tech and fuel-efficient, attributes which we think make Veloster Turbo the ultimate innovation in the sport coupe segment.”
On the exterior, the Veloster Turbo is equipped with unique 18-inch alloy wheels with chrome inserts wrapped around 215/40R18 tires, projector headlamps with unique LED headlight accents, different fog lights. Up front that means a new hexagonal front grille, with unique side sills running the length of the car and a blacked-out rear fascia with large, round exhaust outlets.
On the interior, including there are full leather seats – with seat heaters and the word “Turbo” stitched into the seatbacks. The Turbo model also gains two TFT screens located between the speedometer, tachometer, alloy pedals and speedometer.
Under its sculpted bonnet is a standard engine, powered by a 1.6L GDI four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine with a twin scroll turbocharger that churns out 201HP and 195 lb-ft (264Nm). Output figures for the 2013 North American version is 201 hp at 6,000 rpm and 264 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm.
