The Hyundai Veloster may seem like an unlikely competitor to the Scion FR-S due to its unique exterior body as well as the fact that it’s a front-wheel drive vehicle. However, when compared side-by-side in terms of performance, interior and warranty offering, the 2013 Hyundai Veloster is the clear winner. Learn more about what happens when these two sports cars go head to head: Veloster vs FRS.
Veloster vs FR-S
The Scion FR-S is powered by the 2.0L 4-cylinder boxer engine. Despite being a slightly bigger engine, the FR-S falls short of the power that the Veloster Turbo provides, offering just 200 horsepower. The FR-S is also far less fuel efficient, achieving a mere 30 MPG HWY.
The asymmetrical design of the 2013 Veloster hosts an improved interior space, plus a functionality you would never expect from a sports car. Three doors allow for easy access to the 89.8 cu. ft. of passenger volume, plus 15.5 cu. ft. of cargo storage.
The Scion FR-S is your stereotypical sports car with a cramped interior cabin. The 2013 FR-S contains about 13 cu. ft. less of space than the Veloster. Cargo capacity is even worse, with a mere 6.9. cu. ft. of space for you to attempt to squeeze in all your essential gear.
