Hyundai i30 Tourer awarded five-star safety score

The Hyundai i30 estate has been awarded a maximum Euro NCAP safety rating.

The Hyundai i30 Tourer has been awarded a maximum five-star crash safety rating, including a class-leading score in the child occupant category.

The tests were carried out by Hyundai, but approved by Euro NCAP – the independent crash safety organisation. The i30 Tourer scored 90 per cent for child occupant protection and adult occupant protection.

It proved safe for pedestrians, too, scoring maximum points for protecting pedestrians’ legs in the event of a collision. In the ‘safety assist’ category, the i30 Tourer scored 86 per cent, thanks to front and rear seatbelt reminders and an electronic stability programme.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, said: “The five-star rating shows our commitment to developing cars specifically for Europe and providing the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers.”
