The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Hyundai Veloster is more sporty coupe than sports car; but with available turbo power and a standout three-door design it isn't short on excitement and flair. The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle ranges from green to sporty, all the while wearing a dapper take on its classic lines.
