Today's i-spy reveals the first images of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. Up front, you can see the turbo model will get a new fascia, with a new grille, round fog lights and chin spoilers on either corner of the bumper, under the fog lights. This sportier Veloster also gets more aggressive side skirts and a pair of large, centre-mounted exhaust pipes out back. Given the camouflage at the rear, it's safe to say there will be some other design changes to come. Under the bonnet should be Hyundai's Gamma, 1.6L, direct inject four-cylinder engine, with the addition of a turbocharger. Most sources indicate it should be good for about 210hp. Hyundai will hope to get very close to, or retain completely, the fuel economy rating of the regular Veloster. Watch for this car's likely debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.
