The New Generation Hyundai i30 has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
The New Generation i30 received 90% in the ‘child occupant’ category, scoring maximum points for its protection in both the ‘18-month-old’ and ‘3-year-old’ tests.
In the ‘adult occupant’ category, New Generation i30 also scored 90%, with the vehicle providing good protection for drivers and passengers.
New Generation i30 scored well in the ‘pedestrian’ test, with maximum points 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.
Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “The five-star rating for New Generation i30 further demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers. It’s another reason for motorists to consider the European-built New Generation i30, with safety, first-class quality, efficiency and generous specification among the car’s impressive list of attributes.”
