The tested model of Hyundai Accent was introduced in Australia in August 2011. This ANCAP rating applies to all Accent sedan and hatch variants.
Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced 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.
A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
