2017 Hyundai Veloster vs 2017 Nissan Sentra

If the Hyundai Veloster happened to make it on your list of must-test drive vehicles, then you've probably already noticed that there really isn't anything else like it. It simply stands in a class of its own. But, if you're stuck between choosing Hyundai or a comparable Nissan model, the closest thing to the Veloster and its price range will probably be the Sentra. That's why we're here to compare the differences between the 2017 Hyundai Veloster vs the 2017 Nissan Sentra before you make a final decision on your next new car.

The most noticeable difference between the two vehicles is that the Sentra is a typical sedan, while the Veloster has a three-door hatchback design. Not only does this provide it with a uniquely sporty look, but it also allows it to provide far more cargo space than the Sentra, at a maximum of 34.7 cu ft.

Comparing the 2017 Veloster and 2017 Sentra Differences

The truth is, similarities between the two models are few and far between. One such similarity is the nearly identical horsepower each car's standard engine puts out. But, looking beyond the standard power plants, the Veloster can provide drivers with far more power overall thanks to its available 201-horsepower turbo engine, while the Sentra's available engine options exceed no more than 188 horsepower.

Of course, we have to talk about tech too. These days, the high tech equipment a car comes with is as important as just about anything else, and the Veloster surely excels in this area thanks in part to its standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay infotainment systems, something you won't find on the Sentra. Other standard tech features for the Veloster that you won't find standard on the Sentra include daytime running lights, heated side mirrors and a 6-speaker sound system.

So, if you're someone who wants the latest technology, plenty of cargo space and a thrilling drive, it seems clear in this comparison between the 2017 Veloster vs 2017 Sentra that the Hyundai option easily tops Nissan's sedan. To learn more or to take a test drive, contact us at Coastal Hyundai.
