2014 FIAT 500L vs. 2015 Hyundai Veloster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500L than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Veloster will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500L.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500L as you will with the Hyundai Veloster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the FIAT 500L or the Hyundai Veloster, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 500L and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500L is a little narrower than the Hyundai Veloster, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the FIAT 500L takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the FIAT 500L doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500L 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
The FIAT 500L offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500L will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Veloster.

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