The tested model of Hyundai i30 was introduced in Australia during 2007.
The left-hand-drive European model was offset 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.
Australasian i30 models built from June 2008 have an upgraded knee impact zone and this assessment applies to the upgraded model without inflatable side curtains. A separate ANCAP safety rating is available for the curtain-equipped i30.
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 all New Zealand variants and the Australian 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.
