Small, sporty coupes are hard to find these days, and few offer the Veloster’s utility.
The Honda Civic Si coupe isn’t as practical as the Hyundai, but it is refined, loads of fun, and well-equipped.
The Toyota C-HR blends crossover-esque seating with decent driving dynamics, though it’s light on power.
We can’t say that about the base Ford Mustang, which is a peppy coupe even in its most modest configuration.
The Mini Cooper entertains drivers immensely, but its price escalates rapidly with options.
The more pragmatic among us might point out that the polished Mazda 3 is almost as fun as the Veloster while offering the ability to seat four adults in comfort and five in a pinch.
