2019 Hyundai Veloster is the latest to make the list!
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster, a small car, is the latest vehicle to earn a Top Safety Pick honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The award applies to the Veloster with specific headlights that were built after Aug. 2018.
Despite overall good crashworthiness, one IIHS test uncovered a problem with the driver-side door. Hyundai has addressed the issue in Velosters built after Jan. 2019 and has initiated a recall on cars produced before the change.
The Veloster, which was redesigned for 2019 after a one-year absence from the market, has an unusual door configuration, with two conventionally hinged doors on the passenger side and only one door on the driver side. In the first of two side tests, the driver door opened during the crash, which could lead to occupant ejection in a crash.
Hyundai modified the door beginning with models built after January, and in a second side crash test the door stayed closed. Velosters built before Hyundai began implementing these modifications on the production line must have the recall completed to qualify for the top safety pick award. The recall applies to models built before February.
The Veloster earns an acceptable rating for the premium headlights that come on the Turbo, Turbo Ultimate and Turbo R-Spec trims of vehicles built after August 2018.
Strong crash-test performance, collision avoidance systems and high-quality headlights enabled 30 vehicles to qualify for the top honors in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s initial 2019 model-year rankings.
To get onto the Top Safety Pick+ list, vehicles must have “good” headlights. Your vehicle may come standard with good headlights, however after time they may fade, crack, yellow or provide insufficient nighttime illumination. If you feel your vehicle headlights may pose a safety risk for nighttime driving, contact us today for a complete evaluation and resolution. Visit us online for a complete list of our services.
