Family Car Ranked 2020 Hyundai Veloster N FWD worse.
"More space, has 4-doors, softer ride."
Value Ranked 2020 Hyundai Veloster N FWD better.
"A lot of technology and research geared toward better sports performance makes it more valuable. It has an LSD, dynamic exhaust, dynamic suspension, a better sound system, better infotainment, better aerodynamics, bigger brakes, the list goes on. They’re definitely for a sportier drive but I like that because that’s what I was looking for. "
