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 Corolla Hatchback. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster, drivers may find the Toyota Corolla Hatchback a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hatchback you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Veloster, due to its tank size and 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Veloster or the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, 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 Veloster and the Toyota Corolla Hatchback have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Veloster is about the same width as the Toyota Corolla Hatchback. The Hyundai Veloster is slightly shorter than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Veloster has less horsepower than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Hyundai Veloster has less seating than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, making the Toyota Corolla Hatchback the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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