Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Hyundai Veloster has a score of 72, implying a 0.052% chance of driver death (4.6% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.045%, and the chance of injury falls to 4%.

We estimate that the 2021 Hyundai Veloster has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.052% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.9335%, meaning the average driver has a 0.052% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.9335% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Hyundai Veloster is 8% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2021 Hyundai Veloster is 1% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2021 Hyundai Veloster offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. All trims and versions of the 2021 Hyundai Veloster include the following active safety system: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED). There is an optional safety feature on the 2021 Hyundai Veloster which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Blind-Spot View Monitoring.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.


And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
