Hyundai is expected to release full pricing on the 2013 Veloster Turbo tomorrow, but it’s already let slip on Twitter that the high-output hatch will begin at $1,600 more than a comparably-equipped, normally-aspirated Veloster. Since the Turbo model will start with more standard features than a base Veloster, the only thing we can say with certainty is that the 2013 Veloster Turbo will start at under $24,900 (the price of a loaded Veloster, with the turbo up-charge).

That money will buy you a Veloster with a 201 horsepower, turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, mated to the buyer’s choice of six speed manual or automatic transmissions. To ensure that the Veloster Turbo can carry speed into corners, too, the steering is re-calibrated and stickier Kumho Solus tires are added. Aside from these changes, the Veloster Turbo uses the same suspension and brake components as the rest of the Veloster family.

Inside, expect to see a significant amount of content for your money, ranging from leather seats to a standard infotainment system and a “Supervision Cluster” driver information display. There’s Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system, too, ensuring that information or assistance is just a press of a button away.

We’ll be driving the Veloster Turbo next month, so we promise a full report upon our return.
