The Hyundai Veloster Turbo has received a modest styling update and mechanical upgrades in South Korea.

Already available on order, the facelifted Veloster Turbo gains a few minor exterior styling tweaks such as the silver trim on the front grille, fresh alloy wheel designs, updated headlight graphics and lightly revised fog lights while inside the cabin there are new sporty seats available in three color finishes.

More importantly, the 2015 Hyundai Veloster Turbo will be offered with a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox which debuted a short while ago on the i30 Turbo. It works with the four-cylinder 1.6-liter T-GDi turbocharged gasoline engine pushing out 204 HP (150 kW), unlike the European version where it's rated at 186 HP (137 kW).

Lastly, the revised Veloster Turbo has been equipped with an engine sound equalizer which allows the driver to choose from one of the six available engine sounds.
