    Report: Hyundai Veloster Turbo to produce 208 horsepower
    1302294780

    We haven't been behind the wheel of one yet, but we're thinking that the normally aspirated 2012 Hyundai Veloster probably looks a little faster than it is – we say this only because a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 138 horsepower can only be so spirited.
