When we told you four months ago not to expect to get your hands on a 2012 Hyundai Veloster anytime soon, we weren’t kidding. There are still no Velosters to be found on dealer lots.

But if you are one of those who are patiently waiting to take this quirky ride for a spin, you just might have lucked out with the announcement of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. Sure the base Veloster was appealing with 40 mpg highway, but there’s no doubt the 201 horsepower turbo version will be a helluva lot more fun to drive. It also comes equipped with a new aggressive hexagonal opening on the grille, new set of foglights, LED taillamps and a more vocal exhaust.

“But I’ll suffer at the pump” you say? 27 mpg city and 38 highway with the six-speed manual… hardly what we would call suffering.
