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 Veloster than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Veloster and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Veloster as you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Veloster will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Hyundai Veloster is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Veloster is much wider than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Veloster, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Veloster is significantly less powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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 Hyundai Veloster and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Veloster will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Veloster than that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
