The South Korean manufacturer Hyundai registered the new generation of the three-door Veloster hatch in Brazil through the Brazilian Patents and Trademarks Office (BPTO).
Unlike the Veloster sold by CAOA a few years ago, the new Veloster bets on mechanical and visual sportsmanship. The model abandoned the 1.6 in favor of a new 2.0 four-cylinder aspirated 149 hp and 18.5 kgfm of torque. The faster versions use a 1.6 turbo of 204 hp and 26.9 kgfm of torque. There is also the Veloster N with 2.0 turbo engine of 280 hp and 35.9 kgfm of torque.
The new model maintains the traditional three-door configuration but has adopted a more aggressive and sporty style. The front has a fairly wide front grille that combines with the sharp headlights. The wheel housings have gained strong creases while the rear features lanterns that invade the trunk lid and extend down the spine.
It is possible that the new Hyundai Veloster will be presented at the São Paulo Motor Show.
