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 Ioniq Hybrid than the Hyundai Veloster. The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Veloster, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Veloster. 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 Ioniq Hybrid and the Hyundai Veloster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is a little wider than the Hyundai Veloster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Veloster.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Veloster.

Handling
The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Veloster, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Veloster. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Veloster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Veloster.
