Hot News Up Date: Hyundai's Coupe to Make its Debut at LA Auto Show 2010

Hyundai’s answer to the Volkswagen Scirocco will be launched at the Los Angeles motor show in November.

The Veloster coupé, first seen as a concept in 2007, will replace the Coupe as the flagship in Hyundai’s UK range early next year.

It is a car the firm “wants to be bought for its looks, having been built with the Scirocco firmly in its sights”, according to one insider.

Engines are likely to include a 168bhp 1.4 turbo petrol with stop-start and direct injection. A normally aspirated unit will also be offered.

Hyundai promises “dramatic styling — even more so than the concept”. One key feature is Mini Clubman-style asymmetric doors, which will be re-engineered for right-hand-drive cars.
