When it comes to affordable sports cars and coupes, there might not be as many on the market as there once were, but the stalwarts still available make excellent options for drivers looking for that classic segment. For instance, our 2020 Hyundai Veloster is stylish, spacious and offers an exciting driver experience each time you slide behind the wheel. We thought we’d see how it measures up to another vehicle still standing proud in the segment, the 2020 Honda Civic Coupe. Check out the side-by-side comparison below to see how they fare against one another.
As you can see from the table, there’s a reason the Honda Civic Coupe is considered one of the best options in the segment. However, even though the Civic Coupe does outperform the Veloster, it isn’t by much. In the first row of the table, it becomes clear that the Honda is capable of generating 11 extra horsepower, and the second row highlights the extra 6 pound-feet of torque. That doesn’t amount to a very big difference in the end.
What does amount to a pretty big difference, though, is in the third row, where we highlight the Veloster sports coupe’s extra 7.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity thanks to its fastback nature. Unfortunately, the fourth row does highlight the fact that the Civic Coupe has an extra seat. However, in a small sports car like these, how often are you going to be squeezing an extra person into the back seat? Wouldn’t you rather have the traditional feel of a 2+2 sports car, and have extra space for whatever items you need to bring along?
If you can overlook the ever-so-slight difference in power and don’t care about that tiny extra seat, then the extra cargo space and some of the incredible features and technologies found in the 2020 Hyundai Veloster might equate the perfect sports car for you.
