Hyundai has revealed the first official video of the 2011 Hyundai Veloster sports hatch ahead of its highly anticipated world premiere at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

The video gives only a very limited look at the new model, but thanks to Autoblog reader Brendon and his Photoshop skills, we can see the Veloster’s face in much more detail.

The enhanced image reveals a design similar to the Veloster Concept that debuted way back in 2007.

The production version is more heavily influenced by the latest evolutions of the brand’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ design language, with more flowing lines evident in the grille and headlights.

The 13-second clip explains that the Veloster will have a direct-injection engine (understood to be a 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit), a dual-clutch transmission, Bluetooth connectivity and an estimated fuel consumption of 5.88 litres/100km.

The two-seat Veloster has been confirmed to arrive in Australia in the fourth-quarter of 2011. Whether it keeps the ‘Veloster’ nameplate or conforms to adopt an ‘ixx’ name is still unclear.

    I dont think the name will matter that much, it is a bloody good looker.

    I doubt the production version will have that “zero rear view” hatch on it purely on safety grounds. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product. I reckon it will look similar to the genesis coupe personally but we shall see soon enough.

    Teasing buggers.
