The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Hyundai Veloster starts with niche appeal, but its impressive handling and strong, high-value feature set should play well to the mainstream. The 2012 Volvo C30 has top-notch safety and style; but it's not as racy as it looks and not any more practical than it looks.
