2015 Honda Civic vs. 2015 Hyundai Veloster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Veloster than the Honda Civic, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Veloster will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Veloster.

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

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
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic 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 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.
