Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants.
The left-hand-drive 1.3 litre European model 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. This 4 star ANCAP rating only applies to 5-door Getz that are fitted with an intelligent seat belt reminder for the driver seat and side-thorax airbags. These are fitted to the MY2009 Getz 1.6 SX with the optional Protectz Pack.
The tested model of Hyundai Getz was introduced in Australia and New Zealand during 2002. A safety upgrade applies to Getz from mid 2008 (Model Year 2009). Dual front airbags standard equipment in Australia. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard or optional, depending on the variant. Side airbags with thorax (chest) protection are optional as part of the Protectz Pack for the 1.6 SX variant. Head-protecting side airbags are not available. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. 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.
4 Stars. The Hyundai Getz scored 10.07 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was marginal for the driver. The vehicle scored 14.282 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver. A separate ANCAP rating is available for the 3 door Getz without side airbags.
