Side by Side Comparison of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo vs 2013 Ford Focus St
If you want to stand out in a crowded sea of compact cars, you need something as unique as you are. Select a compact that turns heads and upstages the rest. These modern models embrace sport and emphasize style, all while maintaining the astounding affordability you would anticipate from a compact. The only question is, which model offers the most bang for your buck? To help you make your decision, review this side-by-side comparison of the Veloster vs Focus.
Veloster vs Focus
The Focus doesn’t push as far as the Veloster. The Focus ST is outfitted with a standard 2.0L High-Output EcoBoost I-4 engine. Despite the EcoBoost engine, the 2013 Focus ST achieves just 31 MPG HWY. The Focus ST’s high-performance brakes and sport suspension enhances the drive, but it doesn’t feel as fine-tuned as the Veloster Turbo.
The Veloster is designed to look like nothing else on the road. Its bold, three-door design that offers function, coupled with the athleticism of a coupe. With low-slung lines, a wide-mouthed grille and sporty body kit, the Hyundai Veloster rides in style and stands apart from other compact hatchbacks.
When it comes to outward appearances, the Focus ST is simply not as sporty as the Veloster Turbo. Despite its aggressive grille, chunky sills, oversized spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels, the ST’s modest five-door hatchback origins are evident.
