As its name suggests, the concept is a mid engine sports car, using a completely different architecture than the standard car. The Veloster Midship uses a turbocharged petrol engine, positioned behind the rear seats within the wheelbase. This will provide a better weight distribution and also improved handling.

The 2.0 liter Theta GDI engine delivers 300 hp. This amount of resources is contained through a lighter aluminum suspension as well as a strengthened chassis.

Described as a mini supercar, the Veloster Midship Concept was developed by the same team that engineered the i20 WRC.
