A revised version of the Hyundai Veloster Turbo has been spotted being tested at the Nurburgring as it has a selection of changes made to it.
The car was photographs with only a few areas of disguise, which implies that it may not be having a great deal of changes made to it. This is not really surprising because the shape of the car would probably make it pretty tricky to change very much of it.
It looks like there are some cut-outs on the bonnet which may mean that the air intakes will be changed. This would allow better air flow to and from the 184bhp turbo engine. It might be thought that it would make sense for the engine to upgraded as well with the 201 bhp 1.6 turbo being used, the one that has been used elsewhere by the company. However, sources suggest that the engine will not be changed and the 1.6 turbo will just be used in the Proceed hatchback.
It is thought that many of the changes will be focussed around the chassis of the car. The ride and handling are being worked on to make these better and the steering response is also being improved. There will be a new design of alloy wheel as well, if the rumours are to believed.
The spy pictures also make it look as though there may be some changed to the nose of the car. The two part grille could be changed with a larger one which has emphasised ghorizontal strakes. This is a simple way to give a facelift to a car.
It is expected that the new version of the Hyundai Veloster will be seen in 2015 in showrooms which is three years after it was first launched.
