Recently a report circulated online claiming that the Hyundai Veloster would debut at the LA Auto Show. The folks in Hyundai's PR department denied the claims and went so far as to say another "very important" model would be the focal point of their LA Show press conference. (That vehicle is believed to be the new Elantra).
The latest report, from the Detroit Free Press, is claiming (without a source) that the new compact coupe will arrive a month later at the Detroit show. Perhaps, however, this news story is just a way to fish out the real truth. After all, if Hyundai denies this one we can almost be sure the debut is coming in Paris.
It's long been believed that the upcoming Paris Auto Show would be the venue for the new model, which will slot in below the spot formerly filled by the Tiburon. The Veloster is expected to be powered by a direct-injection 1.6-liter engine making 138-hp and delivering as much as 40-mpg on the highway.
