Hyundai i30 Estate gets 5-star safety rating image

The Hyundai i30 Estate has recently received a five-star safety rating during the latest crash tests at EuroNCAP.

After the five-door hatchback version of the new Hyundai i30 has received a five-star safety rating from the famous EuroNCAP earlier on this year, the estate variant has been rated the same and it’s now joining the list of safe cars produced by the company like the original i30, the i20, the i30, the ix20 and the ix35.

“The five-star rating shows our commitment to developing cars specifically for Europe and providing the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers. Our strategy of making cars ‘in Europe, for Europe’ continues to prove successful, attracting new consumers to Hyundai’s design, quality, safety and value”, says the Hyundai Motor Europe senior vice president and COO, Allan Rushforth.

According to the EuroNCAP, the Hyundai i30 Estate has received a 90 percent score in adult occupants and child occupants protection and the model did well in the pedestrian impact test, receiving the same result as the five-door hatchback. Thanks to the ESP and the seatbelt reminder for all five occupants, the i30 Estate has scored well in the “safety assist” category too.
