Thus far, the NHTSA has not gotten around to crash tests on the Veloster N hatchback, but don't let that deter you. The IIHS is arguably more thorough and has tested the 2021 Veloster. The agency was so impressed with this hatch that it won a 2020 Top Safety Pick award. However, the headlights were rated as Acceptable at best.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Much like with Honda, all available safety features are included as standard on the 2022 Veloster N. As such, you get forward-collision detection with autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, lane-following assist, brake assist, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, driver-attention warning, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. With a nod to pedestrian safety, the Veloster N is also provided with 2.5-mph bumpers, which can deform in crashes at that speed without lasting damage. However, you won't find advanced driver aids like adaptive cruise control here.

Thus far, neither the current model nor the 2021 version of the Veloster N have suffered any recalls. The last issue to present itself pertained to the 2020 model - this was for improperly heat-treated piston oil rings that could damage the engine and cause a stall.
In terms of warranty coverage, Hyundai once again leads the competition with a five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. You also get rust perforation cover for the first seven years and roadside assistance for the first five, both of which are provided without a mileage limit. Finally, Hyundai also includes three years/36,000 miles of trouble-free motoring thanks to an impressive complimentary scheduled maintenance package.
