Hyundai modified the i30 to improve the protection of the driver's knees and femurs in the frontal impact test. Dummy readings for that body region were better than those of the earlier car, although points were still lost for structures such as the steering column and ignition barrel which could present a hazard to the upper legs of drivers of different sizes or those sat in different positions. The occupant compartment and driver footwell remained stable during the impact. In the pedestrian protection tests the protection for the head of a struck child was predominantly fair. However, protection of adults' heads was poor, as was the protection offered by the front edge of the bonnet.
