Euro NCAP: Hyundai i10 gets 4-star safety rating

The popular Hyundai i10 has managed to score a total of just 4 stars after being crash tested by the safety specialists at Euro NCAP.

One of the most popular vehicles in its segment, the Hyundai i10, which was praised by the automotive media, has managed to score a 4-star safety rating after being tested out by Euro NCAP. The European safety specialists have awarded the small city car with 79 percent in Adult Occupant protection, 80 percent in Child Occupant, 71 percent in Pedestrian Safety and 56 percent in the Safety Assist category.

The main problems were discovered in the front offset where the driver’s legs and torso can be affected, but the passenger is safer in this “category”. The total score obtained here was 14.0 points, while in the side car impact, the model obtained 7.5 points and in the side pole impact it scored 6.6 points. The child safety features brought it another 6.0 points and the crash test performance 21.4 points. 26 points were scored in the Pedestrian Safety and 7 points in the Safety Assist. The tested car was a 5-door hatchback with a 1.0 liter petrol engine under its hood, in the Comfort version.
