The Hyundai iMax was introduced in Australia during 2008. This rating applies to vehicles with improved structural design, built from March 2009. The offset crash test of the van variant was conducted by the South Korean government test organisation KATRI, under ANCAP supervision. ANCAP was provided with evidence to show that the iMax has comparable front occupant protection to the van. The rating also applies to the diesel variant.
Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Pretensioners are fitted to the outboard front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. 3-point seat belts are fitted to all seating positions.
