The tested model of Hyundai i30 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand during 2012. This rating applies to all 5-door and 3-door hatch and wagon variants.
The left-hand-drive European model with 1.4 litre engine was tested by Euro NCAP. Hyundai provided evidence to ANCAP that all Australian variants provide comparable occupant protection.
Dual front airbags, driver knee airbag, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP did not have a knee airbag. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. 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.
