The FIAT 500 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Veloster with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Veloster will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500.
The Hyundai Veloster requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500, making it more convenient to drive.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Veloster. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The FIAT 500 and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.
Since the FIAT 500 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Veloster, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Veloster.
With its lower torque, the FIAT 500 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Veloster.
The FIAT 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500 is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Veloster. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500 and the Hyundai Veloster. The FIAT 500 has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
