LOMA LINDA, Calif., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The class of subcompact automobiles has become increasingly stylish as more and more models enter the category. The 2013 Honda CR-Z and 2013 Hyundai Veloster are among the class leaders in distinctive styling. The visual appeal of both vehicles caused Spreen Honda to initiate a comparison of the of the two subcompact autos.
With both vehicles earning high marks in attractive styling, the crux of the comparison was concerned with substantive functionality. With respect to the substantive function of fuel economy, the hybrid-style Integrated Motor Assist® IMA engine inside the Honda CR-Z achieves a noteworthy fuel economy by both city and highway standards. The CR-Z registers 36 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway. Honda's hybrid fuel efficiency is more than enough to outperform Veloster's ratings of 27 city and 37 highway miles per gallon.
Apart from being the more fuel efficient subcompact, the 2013 Honda CR-Z also provides drivers with more practical cargo space. The Hyundai Veloster affords 15.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The Honda CR-Z offers 25.1 cubic feet—a difference of 61 percent in cargo capability.
Through superior fuel efficiency and cargo space, the Honda CR-Z pairs more substance with its style than the Hyundai Veloster. However, even with respect to length of ownership, the CR-Z substantially proves to be the better value. The Honda brand has long been known for manufacturing automobiles that remain on the road longer than competitors' vehicles. Consistently outperforming Hyundai in longevity studies, close to 70 percent of Hondas sold in the last 25 years remain on the road today. When selecting between stylish subcompacts like the CR-Z and Veloster, the Honda length of ownership advantage is another feature that causes Spreen Honda to side with the CR-Z in this subcompact comparison.
