Hyundai’s striking looking Veloster coupe is due for a thorough makeover and the upgraded model has just been spotted on a test run near California City.
Hyundai will continue to make the Veloster Turbo distinctive, despite a redesign. The overall profile will be similar to the current car that was first shown in 2011. That said, the front would be updated and the rear is likely to have a lower and wider look to it.
The rear door on the passenger side only will also continue, judging by the obvious rear door handle on the right side of this prototype and a covered-up rear quarter on the driver's side. The A-pillar has been redesigned, however, and the extended rear glass is also apparent. The latter is possibly designed to give more light to rear passengers.
The Veloster Turbo will benefit from the Elantra Sport's 200bhp turbo petrol engine and an N performance model from Hyundai's new sub-brand which will get a special exterior design package and handling and power upgrades.
