2016 FIAT 500 vs. 2016 Hyundai Veloster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
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.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Veloster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
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 Destination Charge for the FIAT 500 is much higher than that for the Hyundai Veloster.

Dimensions
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.

Drivetrain
The FIAT 500 has much less torque than the Hyundai Veloster, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The FIAT 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
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.

Utility
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.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the FIAT 500 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
