2021 Hyundai Veloster vs. Its Competition

2021 Hyundai Veloster
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Veloster’s performance versions punch up to traditional sports coupes like the Mustang and Camaro, which both offer turbo-4s now.

They’re all different, and the Veloster takes the road less traveled among the three thanks to its looks and short stance.

The Honda Civic competes across the board and is more practical for daily use, but also more expensive.

The Mazda 3 has more elegant lines, and is bright to drive, but not as expressive.

The Corolla Hatchback has sporty ideas, we think there’s more to come too.
