2021 Hyundai Veloster vs. 2021 Nissan Sentra

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster is one of the compact cars that you can count on. It has a lively handling for its powerful engines. It also has a user-friendly infotainment interface. The N model also carries performance upgrades, and now has an available automatic transmission.

In the case of the Nissan Sentra, expect a standard inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a feature that its followers have long been waiting for. There is a long list of safety features for this ride as well.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster offers plenty of cargo space, considering that it is a compact car. This has the basic 19.9 cubic feet configuration, which can be expanded to 44.5 cubic feet once the back seats are folded down flat. Seating up to four people inside, one thing that you will notice is the space delineation between the driver and front passenger. Taller adults will find the setup impressive as well. The bright-colored trim pieces in the cabin make the ride modern to look at.

When compared to the Veloster, the 2021 Nissan Sentra loses in terms of trunk space. It can only hold up to a maximum of 14.3 cubic feet trunk. Since the rear seats cannot be folded, this space cannot be expanded at all. It also promises to seat five, but the rear seats are best left to children in order to fulfill that capacity. The maker blended soft and hard plastics inside, making the cabin feel dated when compared to that of its Hyundai counterpart.

Technology & Safety

If there is one thing that you will truly be impressed about with the Hyundai Veloster, that is the presence of an easy-to-use infotainment system. This one is easy to learn too and with the presence of knobs and physical buttons on the dash, you can do anything from exploring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, to using the Bluetooth interface for other purposes. Safety inclusions for the ride are the rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, driver attention monitoring, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.

As for the Sentra, you will find a seven-inch touch screen for its infotainment system (the same size as that of the Veloster’s). The physical controls are found within reach, but there is a problem with the graphics that the screen displays. It takes time responding to user input too. It features smartphone integration, has a USB port, four speakers, and Bluetooth. Safety elements include automatic high-beam headlights, lane departure warning, rearview camera, and driver attention monitor.


You will find three engine variations in the Veloster. One is the base engine, an inline-four version which carries 147 horsepower. There is also a turbo engine version that generates 201 horsepower. A third engine is available to naturally aspirate 275 horsepower in terms of results.

When it comes to the Nissan Sentra, there is only one engine option. This is the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter configuration that can reach up to 149 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster can take you to many places without much hassle. It is configured to seat four people comfortably, plus it has a reliable set of safety technologies too. This is indeed a better choice over that of the Nissan Sentra.
