Expert Quotes:

Not yet rated
IIHS

Five stars Overall; four stars frontal; five stars side impact
NHTSA




Even though it's a relatively low-volume model, the 2014 Hyundai Veloster has been tested by the federal government, and earned quite respectable scores; with a body structure mostly borrowed from the Hyundai Elantra and a good set of safety features, we're quite confident in its occupant protection.

In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing, the 2014 Veloster earned five stars overall, with four stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact. It hasn't been rated by the insurance-funded IIHS.

Whether you go for the 2014 Veloster or Veloster Turbo, you'll get a long list of safety features, including electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and six standard airbags. Non-turbo DCT models get Hillstart Assist Control, to help keep the vehicle from rolling backward on standing starts up steep inclines. And for 2014, a rearview camera system and a driver's blind-spot mirror are now included on all models.

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

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.

Conclusion

A standard rearview camera makes up for visibility issues; otherwise actual crash-test results are lacking.

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.
