The new Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Electric models have all gained a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

The Hyundai IONIQ performed strongly in crash testing thanks to its lightweight yet stiff high-strength steel construction possessing excellent high-impact energy absorption.  High-strength steel alloys account for more than half of the IONIQ’s overall structure, while a total of seven airbags will deploy in the event of an accident.

A suite of Hyundai SmartSense safety systems are included in an effort to prevent accidents occurring in the first place.  This includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which warns the driver in emergency situations and brakes automatically when the system is triggered by another vehicle, pedestrian, or cyclist appearing in front of the IONIQ.  Also available are Lane Keeping Assist, Blind-spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-traffic Collision Warning systems.

The new Hybrid IONIQ Hybrid and Plug-in are already on sale, with the Electric version to follow in September.
