ALL-NEW HYUNDAI TUCSON ACHIEVES MAXIMUM FIVE-STAR EURO NCAP RATING

Hyundai Motor's new compact SUV, the All-New Tucson, received the maximum five-star safety rating from independent vehicle assessment organisation, Euro NCAP. The result underlines the benefits of Hyundai's approach to democratise technology and safety features across its vehicle range.

Thomas Schmid, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “The All-New Tucson introduces a wide array of new safety technologies, such as  Autonomous Emergency Braking, at an accessible price. The five-star rating from Euro NCAP is further evidence that quality and safety are built into our new cars.”

All-New Tucson offers new active and passive safety features

The Euro NCAP test findings demonstrate that the All-New Tucson is one of the safest and most comprehensively equipped vehicles in its segment. Hyundai’s use of the latest active safety technologies enhances the car’s impressive safety results.

While only the Lane Keeping Assist System and the Speed Limit Information Function were taken into account by Euro NCAP, the All-New Tucson is equipped with a host of other safety features to help avoid and minimise the severity of accidents.

Among them is the Autonomous Emergency Braking system, which alerts the driver to unexpected emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. Blind Spot Detector, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert and Vehicle Stability Management complete the comprehensive active safety package.

For increased pedestrian safety, the All-New Tucson is equipped with an Active Hood System as standard, which raises the vehicle’s hood to cushion the impact shock in a frontal pedestrian collision. A new body shell structure now features 30% more advanced high strength steel, increasing the car’s torsional rigidity to offer greater impact resistance. Additionally, enhanced body connections enable better dissipation of collision energy - another factor that was central to the positive Euro NCAP test result.

The All-New Tucson is on sale now throughout Europe. Its bold design is complemented by a compelling package of technology, comfort and convenience features. It is set to build on Hyundai’s success in the SUV segment: the company has sold more than 1.2 million SUVs in Europe.
