Hyundai Veloster Pumps Up To 208 Horsepower

A little boost goes a long way.

Hyundai's three-door Velosteraptor sport coupe is one little car we're really looking forward to taking for a spin. Fuel-efficient, light and surprisingly loaded with tech, it strikes us as the reborn CR-X Honda could have made the CR-Z into, but didn't.

Still, with only 138 horsepower, we wouldn't mind a little more power under the hood—and it seems Hyundai agrees with us. The car maker announced that starting next year, an all new 1.6 liter turbocharged inline-four will be making its way into the Veloster, giving the plucky little coupe 208 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Maybe not as impressive as Rhys Millen's Veloster...but we'll take what we can get. [via Hyundai Blog]

    The new Veloster is about $20K and the 2013 Veloster with turbo will be close to $22K-24K ??

    Well, well. Add AWD, and it'll be hard to say no. Although the price tag makes it easier...
