The tested model of the Veloster was introduced in Australia and New Zealand during 2012. This ANCAP rating applies to all variants.
The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Hyundai provided technical evidence to show that the results apply to the right-hand-drive Australasian model, including the SR Turbo.
Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
