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 2016 Volkswagen Beetle is a versatile retro compact, with a choice of powertrains and coupe or convertible body styles.
