2013 Veloster Turbo

"Under the hood of the front-wheel-drive four-door hatchback is a slightly modified version of the same direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder, now with its intake boosted to 19 ps.  The new rating works out to 201 horsepower and 194 pound-feet of torque -- an impressive output of 125.63 hp per liter (eye-for-eye with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport)."

"Hyundai's big idea is to have their halo car at the bottom, not the top of the line.  I personally adore this idea, as it gives a much bigger range of people the chance to own a marque's most personal and creative effort.  You have to admit, the usual halo car concept is kind of a tease - you go in the Ford dealer to gawk at the GT, and come home in a Taurus?  That's a letdown.  I'd like to see more manufacturers take Hyundai's approach."
