    Awesome finally an official source confirming the Veloster T. I live in Canada so hopefully we’ll get the sunflower yellow for the turbo since it wasn’t included in the N/A version and I hate the front bumper/grill of the N/A, and from the pics I’ve seen Hyundai they’re changing that too 🙂
    Can’t wait!!!!

    Problems With The Veloster Turbo:
    1)Doesn’t Come With The Nice Color Coordinated Wheels Available On The Loaded N/A Version.
    2)It May Come As A Shock Hyundai But Some Of Us Don’t Like Leather Interiors.
    3)Should(But Doesn’t)Come In All The Colors Available On The N/A Version.
    4)The Grill, While It Is An Improvement Over The N/A Version IS TOO DAMN BIG!!
    5) Now That Everyone Has Gotten Over The Cutesy 3 Side Door Design How About Making It In 2 Door And 4 Door Hatch Models So Everyone Can Get What They Really Want Instead Of Some Marketers Idea Of What They Want. I For One Want A 2 Door Hatch Ya’Know Like The GTI. Is Anyone Listening??
