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 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
