Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Hyundai showed that a similar level of protection is provided to occupants of different statures or those sat in a different position. In the side barrier test, the dummy readings showed good protection of all body regions. However, inspection of the car after the crash revealed that the rear door on the struck side was not fully latched. Analysis of the high speed film indicated that the handle lifted in the crash, owing to inertia, and that this may have partially unlatched the door. Protection of the chest in the side pole impact was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of rib compression. The protection offered by the front seats against whiplash injury in a rear-impact was good but a geometric assessment of the rear head restraints revealed marginal protection.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is clear and the system was rewarded. All of the child restraints for which the car is designed could be properly accommodated and fitted in the i10.


The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs in all areas tested and scored maximum points. Protection of the front edge of the bonnet was good at the centre but was poor towards the stiff outer edges. The bonnet surface and windscreen provided mostly good or adequate protection with poor results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

The i10 has a seatbelt reminder fitted as standard for the front and rear seats, and the system met Euro NCAP's requirements. Electronic stability control is also standard equipment. A driver-set speed limitation device is available as an option and is expected to be fitted to most cars sold. The system met Euro NCAP's requirements for speed assistance systems of this type.

Applies to all i10s of the specification tested
