The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo spends all its second-generation capital on feel-good features–and it works. The 2019 Kia Soul splits its priorities three ways: sporty at the top end, safety in the middle, bargain-priced at the bottom end.
