ANCAP Awards Hyudai i30 With 5-Star Rating
The maximum safety rating has been given to Hyundai’s i30 hatchback by Australia’s ANCAP safety rating organisation.
The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has given the new Hyundai i30 the maximum 5-star rating and described the four-door hatchback car as being on of the safest cars in the small car category.
Hyundai is no stranger to high safety ratings, having already received 5-star ratings for the Elantra, Accent, i40 and Veloster vehicles. These new vehicles have all been launched onto the Australian market.
The test carried out by ANCAP included frontal offset impact, side impact, whiplash and pedestrian protection assessments in which the Hyundai i30 received a score of 35.69 compared to 32.54 for the previous generation of the model.
Hyundai have focused more strongly on safety features on its new models which now include such active safety systems as stability control, traction control brake assist and “Cornering Braking Control”.
Pedestrian safety systems are becoming of increasing importance with the main global test assessment organisations and the Hyundai i30 has a construction which includes memberless front side modules and an impact absorbent front bonnet assembly. The vehicle is also equipped with sensors to assist reversing as standard.
