2016 Hyundai Veloster Safety
We loaded Veloster with safety inside and out. It has every feature you want to see in a car and a few we hope you'll never have to lay eyes on. Get the stability, traction and control of a more expensive luxury car in a style and design that's all you.
Even our take on safety is extreme. Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System (OCS), high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system are all standard on Veloster. It's well above the average safety standard but then again there's nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Veloster's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system coordinates Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), plus the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist (BA) to create an integrated active safety system to help you avoid accidents.

One of three elements in Veloster's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, ESC slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.
Working in tandem with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the Traction Control System (TCS) limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels. This reduces the occurrence of wheelspin and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.
Emergency braking maneuvers can cause wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control exactly when you need it most. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking, and rapidly pulses the brakes to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
Helping the driver maintain confident control in difficult braking situations, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps balance braking forces at each wheel of the vehicle depending on the weight of the passengers and cargo that the vehicle is carrying.
Brake Assist (BA) helps detect emergency braking situations and ensures the maximum braking force is immediately applied to minimize stopping distances.
