Full details on the Veloster Turbo will be revealed in the coming hours, but the tidbits and images available right now are tasty enough.
The Golf GTI-rivalling Korean will deliver 152kW and 265Nm of torque, thanks to Hyundai's new 1.6 litre direct-injected and twin-scroll turbo-charged petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
The images shown here reveal that the Veloster Turbo will get a unique front-end, doing away with the body-coloured panel that splits the regular model's grille, along with restyled foglight bezels and a longer front lip.
Similar tweaks have been made at the rear end, with new deep-set reflector housings surrounding a more prominent rear diffuser and a pair of circular exhaust tips.
i40 Tourer-like LED taillights also replace the bulbs of the regular model.
Along the side is a pair of taller skirts, and the Turbo model also gets its own unique 18-inch five-spoke wheel design.
The Veloster Turbo is scheduled for an Australian debut sometime after the coming launch of the regular model. More details should surface after tomorrow's international unveiling.
