Australian media is reporting Hyundai is analyzing the prospects of axing the Veloster after only one generation.

The quirky yet interesting Hyundai Veloster might be short-lived as GoAuto found out from a source close to the South Korean automaker that a decision regarding a second generation is still up in the air. Unsatisfying sales figures are likely to blame as Hyundai delivered only around 60,000 units in 2013 which was the model's second full year on the market.

A facelift of the current generation will be out in a few months but the car's future remains uncertain beyond the refreshed version which will continue with the controversial asymmetrical door configuration and might get an uprated 4-cylinder 1.6-liter turbo which currently packs a 201 bhp (150 kW) punch.
