ANCAP Safety

The Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) was introduced in Australia in July 2018 and New Zealand in October 2018. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all petrol and diesel TM Santa Fe variants, including the updated models released New Zealand in November 2020, and in Australia in January 2021. Hybrid variants have not been assessed and are unrated.

Dual frontal airbags, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting airbags (curtains) are standard equipment.

All three grades of autonomous emergency braking (City, Interurban & Vulnerable Road User) as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK) are standard.

Some variants of the Santa Fe are equipped with a Child Presence Alert, to warn the driver if a child is left in the vehicle, and a Safe Exit Assist system that locks the doors to prevent exit if an approaching vehicle is detected.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).

The side curtain airbag was found to have torn during initial crash tests. Hyundai has implemented production changes for new vehicles, and a recall has been initiated for vehicles already in service.

Installation of child restraints in the third row is not recommended as there are no top tether anchorages.
