TopGear.com.ph Car News - Hyundai Veloster

Hyundai has confirmed the global introduction of the 2012 Veloster at the North American International Auto Show.

The coupe was first unveiled as a concept car at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2007 (see photos in the gallery below) and is designed to suit "the tastes of the so-called Y-generation."

Not much has been revealed about the Veloster, whose name is a combination of the words velocity and roadster due to its sporty characteristics.

Hyundai-Blog.com said, however, that the production-ready coupe is packed with "Hyundai's new 1.6L GDI engine with more than 140 horsepower." The blog also said Hyundai is expected to release a turbo variant of the Veloster along with the Korean carmaker's first dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

In a separate statement, Hyundai said the Veloster is one of the two vehicles, which will be equipped with the Blue Link, a new in-car connectivity and security system.
