New Generation Hyundai i30 earns five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP

Article by Anita Panait, on May 25, 2012

Euro NCAP, an independent vehicle assessment group, has awarded the New Generation Hyundai i30 a five-star safety rating, making it one of the safest vehicles in the C-segment.  The five-star rating came after the New Generation i30 recorded excellent results from the rigorous test process conducted by NCAP. 

The New Generation i30 scored 90% in the ‘child occupant' category, gaining maximum points for its protection in both the ‘18-month-old' and ‘3-year-old' tests. The New Generation i30 likewise scored 90% in the ‘adult occupant' category, as the vehicle is assessed as being able to provide good protection for drivers and passengers.  The i30’s head restraint and seat particularly received praise for providing good protection against whiplash injuries in case of rear-end collisions.

The car also scored 86% in the ‘safety assist' category, attributed mainly to its electronic stability system as well as to its front and rear seatbelt reminder system. The New Generation i30 likewise scored well in the ‘pedestrian' test, with maximum points given for the bumper's protection of pedestrians' legs.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, remarked that the five-star rating given to the New Generation i30 demonstrates the company’s commitment to provide “the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers.” Rushfort added that the five-star rating give customers another reason to acquire the New Generation i30, which is produced in Europe.

The New Generation i30 is the seventh consecutive Hyundai model to receive a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, following models i30, i20, ix35, ix20, i40 and Veloster. European buyers of the New Generation i30 will receive Hyundai’s Five Year Triple Care, a customer assurance package that offers a five-year warranty with no mileage limit, a five-year roadside assistance, and five-year vehicle health checks.
