Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Yaris than the Hyundai Veloster, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Veloster and the Toyota Yaris 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 Toyota Yaris, 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). The Hyundai Veloster will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Veloster and the Toyota Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Veloster is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Veloster, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Yaris.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Veloster transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Yaris.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Veloster has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Yaris. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Hyundai Veloster has less seating than the Toyota Yaris, making the Toyota Yaris the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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