At first glance, this looks like just another validation car for the upcoming mid-life update for the Hyundai i30.
Look a little closer, however, and there's a few clues that this is something a little out of the ordinary.
The most unusual feature is the twin tailpipes poking out from the rear bumper, while the aggressive alloy wheels have a distinctly sporty look to them.
Is this the turbocharged i30 warm hatch we've all been waiting for, then?
Many pundits are claiming that yes, it is, and that the Veloster's 150kW/265Nm 1.6 litre turbo mill will sit under its bonnet.
Whether that's true or not remains to be seen, but with the facelifted i30 range expected to be revealed in the first quarter of next year, it may not be long before we find out.
Until then, you can find the same powertrain not only in the Veloster SR Turbo, but in the Kia Pro-C'eed GT as well.
