The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
8.0

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 2015 Volkswagen Beetle offers plenty of powertrain choice and decent practicality in a retro-leaning package.
