Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra GT than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Elantra GT will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra GT as you will with the Hyundai Veloster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Hyundai Elantra GT or the Hyundai Veloster, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Elantra GT and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra GT is about the same width as the Hyundai Veloster. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Elantra GT, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra GT does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra GT has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Veloster, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra GT has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Veloster. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Hyundai Elantra GT offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Elantra GT has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Veloster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Hyundai Elantra GT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Veloster.
