Looking slightly more angular on the whole, the front design of the car is now in line with the rest of its i30 family.
At the rear, the car looks less adventurous and quirky than its predecessor.
Judging from the photos, the car seems to have retained its funky 3-door body style where by one side of the car has one door while the other side has two doors.
The car has been rumored to get two new turbocharged engines. Coming in 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre sizes, both engines are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The Hyundai Veloster will be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
