The tested model of Hyundai i30 was introduced in Australia during 2007.
The left-hand-drive 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.
Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants.
Dual front airbags and antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are standard on all variants. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard on SLX and Elite variants and are optional on the SX variant.
Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. 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.
