The tested model of Hyundai i20 was introduced in Australia during 2010. This 4 star rating applies to all i20 variants fitted with 2 airbags. A separate ANCAP safety rating is available for the i20 with 6 airbags.
The left-hand-drive 5-door hatch 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. Hyundai provided evidence to ANCAP that 3-door variants of the i20 can be expected to provide comparable protection to the 5-door hatch tested by Euro NCAP.
Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard on the Elite and Premium variants and are optional on the Active variant. Intelligent 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.
