The new Hyundai i30 Tourer has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, the independent vehicle assessment organisation.
The Hyundai i30 Tourer scored Adult Occupancy 90%, Child Occupancy 90%, Pedestrain 67% and 86% Safety Assist which compares to the 2012 Ford Focus hatchback which scored Adult Occupancy 92%, Child Occupancy 82%, Pedestrain 72% and 86% Safety Assist.
The Hyundai i30 Tourer scored a class-leading 90% for the ‘child occupant’ category – in both ’18-month-old’ and ‘3-year-old’ – tests. In the ‘adult occupant’ category, the i30 Tourer scored 90% and was praised for the good protection afforded by the front head restraints against whiplash in the event of a rear-end impact.
According to Hyundai the standard fit 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.Published 18 October 2012
