The Car Connection's Take

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 2016 Mini Cooper is as cheeky as its retro style implies—and its three-cylinder engine is a charming surprise. The 2016 Scion iM looks the part of the youth-oriented sporty hatchback, but doesn't drive the part.
