Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Spark offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Veloster with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster, the Chevrolet Spark may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Veloster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Spark, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Chevrolet Spark and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Spark and the Hyundai Veloster. The Chevrolet Spark 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 Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
