Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Ioniq EV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Veloster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, 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). The Hyundai Ioniq EV will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Veloster, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Ioniq EV and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Ioniq EV is a little wider than the Hyundai Veloster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq EV has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Veloster, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Ioniq EV does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Veloster.

Utility
The Hyundai Ioniq EV offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.
