The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Honda CR-Z is the only hybrid sports coupe, but that's not quite enough for us. The 2012 Hyundai Veloster starts with niche appeal, but its impressive handling and strong, high-value feature set should play well to the mainstream.
