Let’s see today how new great hatchbacks are going to fight with each other. For today’s fight we have prepared 2013 year model of Scion TC, the car model that cannot be met that often in our web-site, and we are going to change that; and it is going to be pared with another quite interesting model of 2013 year new Hyundai Veloster.

These two models are quite affordable, as they compete in the under $20,000 market. They both have a price less than the usual hatchback of the upper-class. Though we cannot say that they deserve to be in a high-class segment, but they are still quite competitive offerings on the market. New Scion got for itself new 2.5-Liter 180-horsepower I4 engine. On the other side new Hyundai is equipped with 1.6-Liter 138-horsepower I4. Therefore we see that the difference in ponies is quite big, and is therefore quite noticeable. Though new Hyundai is better in terms of fuel economy, offering 6 mpg more in the city and 9 mpg on the highway.
