2015 Scion FR-S 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 Scion FR-S, 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 Scion FR-S.

Convenience
The Hyundai Veloster requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Scion FR-S, 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 Scion FR-S 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. In this case, the Scion FR-S will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Veloster.

Dimensions
The Scion FR-S 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 Scion FR-S takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Veloster.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Scion FR-S and the Hyundai Veloster.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Scion FR-S and the Hyundai Veloster. The Scion FR-S 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 Scion FR-S is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
