The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Hyundai Veloster is a tough one to classify, but it is what it appears: part sports coupe, part sensible hot hatch, and a lot of quirky. The affordable, practical 2016 Kia Soul has a boxy style that fits right into urban environments, yet fits a lot inside.
