2019 Hyundai Veloster vs. 2019 Honda Civic Si

March 25th, 2019 by

If you’re looking for a sporty, quick compact, there’s some long-established names on the market. But for the last few years, a new entry has been proving itself a worthy competitor–and often, the better option. We’re talking about the Hyundai Veloster, the unique three-door coupe introduced in 2011.

With sharp styling, excellent performance, and excellent value, this car should be on your short list if you’re shopping in that segment. Here’s how the 2019 Hyundai Veloster stacks up against the 2019 Honda Civic Si.


Both the Veloster and Civic Si are front-wheel drive only vehicles that offer turbocharged, 200+ horsepower 4-cylinder engines. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster’s available 1.6-liter turbo engine produces 201 horsepower, while the Honda Civic Si’s standard 1.5-liter produces a hair more at 205, meaning that both vehicles have the same fun-to-drive zip.


But the 2019 Civic Si gives you fewer options as to how you enjoy that power. Sure, it also comes in both a standard sedan and coupe layout, unlike the Veloster, but it only offers a single engine and transmission option. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster can be had with a more affordable 147 horsepower 2.0-liter engine…or those looking to go all-out can opt for the Veloster N, which blows any Civic Si out of the water with its incredible 250 horsepower.

And if you don’t drive stick, you’re out of luck with the 2019 Honda Civic Si. Unlike the 2019 Hyundai Veloster, it doesn’t even give you the option of an automatic transmission.


The 2019 Hyundai Veloster’s starting price is nearly $6,000 below that of the 2019 Honda Civic Si, and even with the comparable equipment turbocharged engine it’s still more than $1,000 below the price. No matter your preferences, you can configure a 2019 Hyundai Veloster that beats out the equivalent Civic in terms of value.


Who can compare with Hyundai when it comes to a warranty? No one, that’s why it’s the industry’s best. Your 2019 Hyundai Veloster will be backed by a 60-month, 60,000 mile basic warranty and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty that crush the 36 month/36,000 mile basic and 60 month/60,000 mile powertrain warranties offered by Honda.
