The new generation Hyundai i30 joins the i20, ix35, ix20, i40 and Veloster in scoring the maximum five-stars in the latest Euro NCAP tests - making the i30 one of the safest cars in its class.

The Hyundai i30 scored - 90% for adult occupant protection, 90% child occupant protection, 67% pedestrian safety and 86% safety assist systems.

The child occupancy protection is an excellent result scoring maximum points for its protection in both the ‘18-month-old’ and ‘3-year-old’ tests.

The Hyundai i30’s 90% adult occupancy rating is amongst the best results seen by Euro NCAP with excellent protection for drivers and passengers.  The head restraint and seat were praised for providing good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

In the ‘pedestrian’ test maximum points were awarded for the bumper’s protection of pedestrians’ legs.  Electronic Stability Program, as well as a front and rear seatbelt reminder system, contributed to the car’s score of 86% in the ‘safety assist’ category.
