Positioned as a rival to the Honda CR-Z, the Veloster won’t be a hybrid, but will still beat the Honda in terms of fuel economy (on the highway anyway) thanks to a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder mated to a dual-clutch transmission. Power will be rated at 138-hp and 124 ft-lbs of torque.
Check back for more info soon, plus complete details from the live reveal at the Detroit Auto Show on January 10th.
