Quick Specs
8.2
The 2014 Hyundai Veloster is more sporty coupe than sports car; but with available turbo power and a standout three-door design it isn't short on excitement and flair.
7.0
If you're looking for a two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe, the 2014 Honda CR-Z is your only choice--but many other small cars offer more driving fun, or higher fuel efficiency, often at equal cost.
8.0
The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle ranges from green to sporty, all the while wearing a dapper take on its classic lines.
7.6
The 2014 Scion tC coupe has an interesting personality, made a bit better this year, but it's standing in the shadow of the excellent FR-S sports car.
