Adult occupant

The passenger compartment of the i30 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 would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was weak. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled by means of a switch, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in the passenger seat. The system provided clear information to the driver regarding the status of the airbag. There were clear warnings of the dangers of using a reaward facing restraint in that seating position without having deactivated the airbag.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians and the car scored maximum points in this area. The front edge of the bonnet provided predominantly good protection. In most areas where a child's head might strike, the bonnet provided good protection but the protection of an adult's head was mixed.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the i30 and met Euro NCAP's requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the driver, front passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is available but was not assessed by Euro NCAP as it is offered as an option.
