NOT much has changed with the look of Hyundaiís quirky threeand- a-half door Veloster hatchycoupe following a recent update; thereís a new bonnet, while the Turbo models get a new grille and 18s. Revised suspension and steering bring a slightly better drive while pricing has copped a kick south with the turbo models.

Entry to the forced-induction version of the 1.6-litre directinjection engine is now $29,990, bang on the price of its hottest rival, the COTY-winning Toyota 86.

Thereís also a new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and the addition of an SR Turbo + model.
