2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 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 Honda Civic than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Veloster will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Honda Civic will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Veloster, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Honda Civic is somewhat more expensive 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the Hyundai Veloster. If you go with the Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Veloster.

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

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

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Hyundai Veloster, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Honda Civic offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Civic has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Veloster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
