Hyundai Verna Achieves Five-Star Safety Rating
The Hyundai Verna, a popular sedan in India, has received a five-star safety rating for both adult and child occupant protection from Global NCAP, a leading vehicle safety assessment program. This marks the first time a Hyundai car has achieved this rating. The tested Hyundai Verna was the most basic version, which includes standard features such as six airbags and electronic stability control (ESC).
Adult Occupant Protection
The Hyundai Verna underwent frontal and side impact tests, side pole impact, and ESC tests. The car scored 28.18 out of 34 points in adult occupant protection. It provided good protection to the driver’s and passenger’s head and neck in the frontal impact test, with the chest protection being marginal for the driver and good for the passenger. The footwell area was rated as unstable, and the bodyshell was found to be unstable.
Child Occupant Protection
For child occupant protection, the Hyundai Verna scored 42 out of 49 points. The car impressed in both frontal and side impact tests. The child seats for a 3-year-old and an 18-month-old were installed rearward-facing with support legs, providing full protection. The car features standard three-point seatbelts in all seating positions and complies with child restraint system (CRS) installation requirements.
Safety Features and Comparison
The Hyundai Verna’s five-star rating is a significant achievement for the Indian automotive industry, setting a new benchmark for safety standards. The car comes with over 30 safety features as standard, including front and rear parking sensors, electronic parking brake, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). However, it is worth noting that the Hyundai Verna sold in India differs from the Latin American model, which has fewer safety features and scored zero stars in a recent Latin NCAP crash test.
