2017 Ford Focus vs. 2017 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 Ford Focus than the Hyundai Veloster. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Focus, drivers may find the Hyundai Veloster a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus will cost more in transportation costs than the Hyundai Veloster.

Dimensions
The Ford Focus is a little wider than the Hyundai Veloster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Focus, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Focus transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The Ford Focus has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus is somewhat more powerful than the Hyundai Veloster.

Utility
The Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Veloster.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Focus is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
