2014 MINI MINI-Coupe vs. 2014 Hyundai Veloster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Veloster will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Coupe.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Coupe 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). The MINI MINI-Coupe 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 MINI MINI-Coupe and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Coupe 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 MINI MINI-Coupe, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Veloster.

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

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

Performance
The MINI MINI-Coupe has less horsepower than the Hyundai Veloster, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Coupe has less seating than the Hyundai Veloster, making the Hyundai Veloster the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Coupe 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 MINI MINI-Coupe is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
