You wonder why we got those two cars to the front line today? Then the answer is simple, it is usually quite entertaining to watch some of the not so known brands crash each other. So let’s see what those two models can offer us in terms of entertainment and also some engineering knowledge of the automakers. Go Veloster or the TC of year 2013!!

So in terms of price, the cars are relatively quite affordable, you will have to pay not more than $20,000 for each of those. No let’s see the core. Huyndai is again lagging behind giving us the standard engine like this – 1.6L 138hp I4. A real driver would not even bother with 1.6-Liters… Scion got to you more ponies and a bigger volume – 2.5L 180hp I4 – as you read you can even feel more power coming than from Veloster. As a result Huyndai is lower on the torque, offering 123 @ 4850 RPM, while Scion can get you 173 @ 4100 RPM of torque. Interesting enough, the car that wasn’t usually considered to be mainly enough can win the fight? But it isn’t not over yet. Huyndai can beat the Scion with fuel economy! With Veloster 2013 you have 28 mpg in city and 40 mpg on highway, while TC can give you 23 and 31 respectively.
So which one got more cracks? Oops, it appears that both fell apart… oh well, draw, ladies and gentlem!
