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 Plug-In Hybrid than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster.

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 Plug-In Hybrid 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 Plug-In Hybrid and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid 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 Plug-In Hybrid, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Veloster.

Utility
