Latest reports spotted the 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo hot hatch undergoing tests while disguised under heavy camouflage.

However, Hyundai seems to be not ready yet in term of performance, the automaker needs to revise its design and engine to match the performance level of competitor’s lineup.

Exterior

While Hyundai has been unveiling a few models recently that are less than revolutionary compared to the ones they are replacing, there’s every reason to believe that the next Veloster will be a true return to form for the automaker. The spy shots we’ve seen so far reveal a serious modernization of the vehicle’s look. As well as a new body, the front and rear lights are likely to follow the current trend of being made smaller with plenty of LEDs. It’s also a good bet that the front grille will bear a strong resemblance to the new corporate look we see on models such as the model-year 2015 Genesis.

Interior

Not much has been revealed from the spy pictures because this car was concealed except for the fact that the cabin of latest and upcoming 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo revolves around the infotainment system. According to speculations you can expect the interiors to be more advanced and of latest technology. It is probably going to have a surround audio system. Also, steering wheel will have control buttons such as audio controls, cruise control and a Bluetooth headset. It will have remote vehicle start features, standard rear-view camera with 7 inch screen. It will also have comfortable yet stylish sports bucket seats with fine stitching. The steering wheel also has paddle shifters so that you can race through gears without having to leave hold of your steering wheel.

Powertrain

It’s not clear what performance upgrades have been made, though it’s not unreasonable to expect Hyundai to squeeze a bit more grunt out of the current turbocharged 1.6-liter four in the current model. Simple intake, exhaust and ECU modifications should help boost the current model’s 201-horsepower rating.

We’re also expecting Hyundai to have tuned the suspension, with the 2014 Veloster Turbo R-Spec hinting at what’s possible. Some R-Spec upgrades that could filter across to the regular model include higher spring rates, a more rigid transmission mount and a brake-based torque vectoring system.

Look for unveiling of the 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo hot hatch in the first half of 2015, standard version should follow after bringing the same updates. With all these new features and technology, expect the price tag to climb up a bit higher than the current model. More information should be available as the development progresses.
