Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Veloster than the Toyota 86, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota 86 and the Hyundai Veloster in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Veloster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 86, 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 Toyota 86 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. In this case, the Toyota 86 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Veloster.

Dimensions
The Toyota 86 is a little narrower than the Hyundai Veloster, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota 86 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Toyota 86 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The Toyota 86 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota 86 has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Veloster. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota 86 and the Hyundai Veloster. The Toyota 86 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 Toyota 86 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Veloster.
