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 Veloster than the Toyota 86. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Veloster and the Toyota 86 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Hyundai Veloster will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota 86, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Veloster is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota 86. 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 Veloster will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota 86.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Veloster is a little wider than the Toyota 86, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Veloster takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota 86.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Veloster doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 86.

Handling
The Hyundai Veloster has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota 86, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Veloster is significantly less powerful than the Toyota 86. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Veloster and the Toyota 86. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Veloster will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 86.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Veloster than that of the Toyota 86.
