Hyundai Veloster Euro NCAP Five-Star Rating Announced

One of the cars that managed to surprise us from the twelve test results that were just released by Euro NCAP is Hyundai’s innovative 1+2 coupe, the Veloster, which got five full stars and shined in many segments you wouldn’t think it could.
First off, adult occupant protection was the highest off all the cars, and the Veloster even managed to guard against whiplash in case of a rear impact. Child occupant protection was also good for both the 18 month and 3 year old child dummies, and the coupe scored 89% in this case.

“Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. Clear information is provided regarding the dangers of using a rearward facing child restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag,” Euro NCAP says.

Protection provided by the bumper and front edge of the bonnet to the legs and pelvis of a struck pedestrian was good or marginal. Overall, with a score of just 49%, it’s not the best car to hit people in, but it’s clear that Hyundai tried its best ti make the edges as soft as possible. The car’s downside comes with the fact that the head of the pedestrian wound be struck by the glass area.

Euro NCAP says that Electronic stability control is standard on the Veloster, as is a seat belt reminder for the driver and front passenger seats, so it got 71% for its safely assist devices.
