Hyundai is reportedly trying to decide the fate of the Veloster, which may end up being discontinued after just one generation. With disappointing sales, Hyundai’s execs have yet to make a decision regarding a second generation Veloster.
According to GoAuto, the quirky Veloster only sold 60,000 units globally in 2013. A facelift is expected to arrive sometime next year, but if sales don’t pick up, it’s fate may be in jeopardy. The restyled Veloster is expected to retain its controversial asymmetrical door layout, but in addition to some styling updates, Hyundai could give it a bit more oomph under the hood. Currently the standard Veloster is powered by a 138-hp four-cylinder, while the Veloster Turbo gets a 201-hp 1.6L turbocharged engine.
