The 2013 Hyundai Veloster is still relatively new, at least where the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are concerned. Neither of those agencies has crash-tested the Veloster--but the outlook is good, as the hatchback borrows some of its body structure from the Hyundai Elantra, an IIHS Top Safety Pick and one of the NHTSA's five-star winners.

Both the Veloster and its Turbo companion have a generous array of standard safety equipment, 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. Non-turbo DCT models get Hillstart Assist Control, to help keep the vehicle from rolling backward on standing starts up steep inclines.

Backup warning sensors and a rearview camera system are available on the base version and standard on the Turbo; they're a big help, since the low-slung Veloster has huge blind spots to its rear three-quarters, a consequence of its wacky, innovative door treatments.

Also included on all versions is Hyundai's Blue Link telematics platform. BlueLink includes a suite of safety services like Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) and Assistance and SOS Emergency Assistance.

Conclusion

Visibility is poor, but a rearview camera is standard; no Veloster crash-test data is available. 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.
