The all-new Scirocco challenger will make its official worldwide premiere at the 2011 North American International Auto Show, which kicks off on the 10th of January.
The South Korean largest carmaker today released an official countdown page where you can sign-up to receive updates on the car’s official launch. The page features a Veloster teaser image and reveals the car’s front fascia lay-out, highlighted by a set of striking LED headlamps.
The other part of Hyundai’s pre-launch media campaign includes a teaser video uploaded to Youtube.com, which adds some information regarding Veloster’s powertrain technology. As expected, the all-new Hyundai Veloster will be fitted with engines featuring gasoline direct injection -GDI technology. A dual-clutch automatic transmission will also be available for the first time in a Hyundai vehicle.
According to a report from Autoexpress, the entry-level models are powered by a 138bhp 1.6-litre direct injection petrol engine, with flagship models getting a 205bhp turbo version of the same engine. Now, that’s really mind blowing output from a 1.6L.
