Hot on the heels of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid�s Malaysian launch, Euro NCAP has released its full report plus footages of the Ioniq�s crash test, in which the hybrid vehicle scored the full five stars.
Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole.
The Ioniq�s autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system was tested against dummy vehicles and pedestrians; it managed to avoid crashing in the 50 km/h city and inter-urban tests. The Ioniq also managed to avoid a crash in the AEB pedestrian test at 45 km/h, and although the dummy was hit in the 50 km/h AEB test, the speed at impact was reduced to 25 km/h.
In Malaysia, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid gets the full safety suite, including AEB, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor as well as Smart Cruise Control in its top-spec RM111k HEV Plus guise. However, even the base RM100k HEV model gets seven airbags and electronic stability control as standard.
