Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Hyundai i20 has been awarded a 3 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The tested model of Hyundai i20 was introduced in Australia during 2010. This 5-star rating applies to all i20 variants fitted with 6 airbags. A separate ANCAP rating is available for the i20 with 2 airbags.

The i20 scored 13.07 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver. There was a slight risk of serious leg injury for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test.

Important note: The left-hand-drive 5-door hatch was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page. Hyundai provided evidence to ANCAP that 3-door variants of the i20 can be expected to provide comparable protection to the 5-door hatch tested by Euro NCAP.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard on the Elite and Premium variants and are optional on the Active variant. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

3-Star Pedestrian Rating

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).

Most of the bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs, as did most parts of the bonnet edge. The protection offered by the bonnet was good in most areas likely to be struck by a child's head but was predominantly poor in those areas where an adult's head would hit.
