2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Confirmed

This isn’t really a surprise, but Hyundai has now officially confirmed that the Hyundai Veloster is going to get the new 1.6L turbocharged engine that the automaker recently unveiled.

Hyundai’s CEO John Krafcik has confirmed that the turbocharged Veloster will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January. The refreshed Genesis coupe will also debut at the show. Hyundai has confirmed that the turbocharged 1.6L will pack 204 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque, which should give the Veloster some much needed power. Hyundai hasn’t announced what other upgrades the turbocharged Veloster will get.

The Genesis coupe’s 2.0L turbocharged engine is also going to get some power upgrades to separate it from the Veloster’s turbo.
