The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is the performance version of the first generation Hyundai Veloster.
The Hyundai Veloster (FS) is a coupé first produced in 2011 by Hyundai, with sales beginning in South Korea on March 10, 2011 and in North America since the fall of 2011. In South Korea, it is marketed under Hyundai's Premium Youth Lab'. It was unveiled on January 10, 2011, at the Detroit Auto Show, and fills the void left when Hyundai discontinued the Hyundai Tiburon after the 2008 model year.
The Veloster Turbo uses a 1.6L T-GDi Gamma engine that has different outputs depending on the market. In North America, the engine outputs 150 kW (204 PS; 201 hp) at 6,000 rpm, and 27 kg⋅m (265 N⋅m; 195 lbf⋅ft) between 1,750-4,500 rpm. In other markets, such as Europe, it receives a lower-power engine outputting 186 PS (137 kW; 183 hp) at 5,500 rpm with the same 265 Nm of torque, but altered to come earlier in the rev range at 1500 rpm. A possible reason for the European market receiving the lower-powered engine may be because the Kia Pro Cee'd GT already makes use of the 150 kW engine. The car has three doors in North America and in Europe, making the Veloster Turbo's shooting brake body style both in North America and in Europe a relative novelty.
