Hyundai makes no shortcuts on safety. This is never more evident than in the abundance of safety features built into the Veloster. Like 6 airbags, including driver, front passenger, dual curtain, and dual side airbags for front passengers.
The Traction Control System (TCS) prevents wheel spin under hard acceleration or slippery conditions. The ABS has Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) operating on each wheel individually.
The Brake Assist System (BAS) applies maximum braking in emergencies, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) stops steering induced skidding. And the whole lot is encased in a rigid high tensile steel body.
For protection in a collision, the dash, cross and side members, roof structure and pillars are made from reinforced sheet metal.
Front, side and curtain airbags deploy immediately in the event of a collision, reducing the possibility of injuries.
The Veloster has achieved the maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating. It comes standard with numerous active and passive safety technologies - which are designed to help the driver stay in control at all times.
Sensors in the rear bumper detect obstacles when reversing, with a beep sounding when the car gets too close to an object or kerb.
