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 2022 Hyundai Veloster has a score of 81, implying a 0.04% chance of driver death (3.6% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Hyundai Veloster has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0402% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.5897%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0402% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.5897% chance of being injured.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Hyundai Veloster include: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED), Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind-Spot View Monitoring.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
