2018 Hyundai Veloster N walkaround: video

The new 2018 Hyundai Veloster made its global debut last week in Detroit, after months of spy photos and a short series of teaser images. As expected, the new Veloster will be offered in three main grades: 110kW/179Nm base models, 150kW/265Nm SR Turbo variants, and the top-shelf 205kW Veloster N hero model. The 2018 Veloster keeps the quirky four-door hatch layout of its predecessor, but takes on a sharpened new look for the latest generation.

2018 Kia Cerato GT confirmed for Australia, turbo looks likely

A new 2018 Kia Cerato GT model will headline the Korean brand's Australian line-up this year, sitting atop an otherwise familiar model spread. While some other model ranges in the Kia family are topped by a GT-Line variant, those are mere styling kits to give the car a more sporting look. But, as with the flagship Optima GT, removing the 'line' adds power and handling tweaks for a more sporting drive.
