The Hyundai Veloster has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by independent vehicle assessment organisation, Euro NCAP. The results of the extensive test process include class-best scores for the 1+2 door sports coupe.
The Veloster attained a rating of 96% in the ‘adult occupant’ category, registering maximum points in the side barrier test and the more severe side pole test while in the ‘child occupant’ category, the Veloster achieved a score of 89%. The results in the ‘adult occupant’ and ‘child occupant’ classes put the Veloster in front of segment rivals such as the Volkswagen Scirocco, Opel Astra GTC and Citroën DS4.
The electronic stability program and seatbelt reminder systems contributed to the car’s score of 71% in the ‘safety assist’ category.
The Veloster is the sixth consecutive Hyundai model to achieve the maximum five-star score in the Euro NCAP safety program. The all-new i40 is the most recent car before Veloster to be awarded the top rating.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “The five-star rating for Veloster further demonstrates our commitment to the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers. Veloster is attracting a new audience to the Hyundai brand, combining practicality and ‘fluidic’ design in a unique 1+2 door package. Recognition of its class-leading safety performance will further add to its appeal.”
