2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

This just in - Hyundai will turbo the 1.6 liter GDi 4 cylinder that will be found in the new sports hatch. The 138 hp naturally aspirated four should be pretty peppy with the new 6 speed or Dual Clutch system but how does 208 sound? A lot better right? Thats what everyone in the car world is thinking too! The Veloster Turbo has the means to compete with hot hatches across the globe with that kind of powertrain. As seen in the Sonata turbo the gas mileage difference may be very similar to more mainstream packages too. Hyundai hopes to acheive 40 mpg with the Veloster and the Turbo version might be close to that. Rumor has it that the new Hyundai Elantra Touring and even perhaps the Accent will also share the turbo motor. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.
