The Car Connection's Take

8.6
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. If you're looking for style with a dash of sport and a handful of practicality, the MINI Cooper Coupe is a great choice.
