The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is an all-new vehicle and hasn't yet been crash tested by any major safety organization (stay tuned for updates). But the outlook is good, as it does borrow some of its structure from the Hyundai Elantra, which is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and Hyundai's recent models in general have shown strong.

Feature-wise, the Veloster includes a generous array of standard items, including electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and six standard airbags—including front seat-mounted side and side-curtain bags covering front and rear occupants. Backup warning sensors and a rearview camera system are available, too, and DCT models get Hillstart Assist Control, to help keep the vehicle from rolling backward on standing starts up steep inclines.

Also included is the Blue Link telematics platform. Much like GM’s OnStar, BlueLink. BlueLink includes a suite of safety services like Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) and Assistance and SOS Emergency Assistance.

Conclusion

The 2012 Veloster is likely one of the safer picks among sporty coupes.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
