Hyundai IONIQ 6 gets five-star safety ratings in Euro NCAP crash tests.

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 scored 97% in the Adult Occupant category and 87% for the Child Occupant category in the Euro NCAP safety test.

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 has received five-star safety ratings in the Euro NCAP crash tests. The newest model in Hyundai’s IONIQ line-up scored 97% in the Adult Occupant category, 87% for the Child Occupant category, 66% for Vulnerable Road Users, and 90% for Safety Assist.

Alongside seven airbags as standard, IONIQ 6 is equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense Advanced Driver Assistance Systems that helped it secure maximum safety ratings. These include Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2), which helps to maintain a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway and helps to centre the vehicle in the lane while driving, even through a corner.

Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC) helps to maintain distance from the vehicle ahead and drive at a speed set by the driver by reflecting the learned driving style of the driver. It also uses the navigation system’s road information to optimise automated driving and perform speed adjustments for safe driving through corners. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) helps to avoid collisions with objects in front of the vehicle while driving by providing a warning and assisting with emergency braking.

Hyundai’s IONIQ 6 Electrified Streamliner also includes enhanced functions of Junction Turning, Junction Crossing, Lane-Changing Oncoming, and Lane-Changing Side along with Evasive Steering Assist. Other semi-autonomous driving features include Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), which adjusts vehicle speed to match the speed limit, and High Beam Assist (HBA), which can help switch high beam lights on and off at night for approaching vehicles in the opposite oncoming lane.

IONIQ 6 has several driver attention-related functions, such as Driver Attention Warning (DAW), which analyses the driver’s attention while driving, provides a warning when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected, and recommends a rest if needed. During a stop, the driver is alerted if the leading vehicle departs.

Certain functions work in tandem to help avoid collisions in a variety of driving situations. Blind-Spot Collision-avoidance Assist (BCA) helps avoid collisions at the rear side of the vehicle when changing lanes. Another function, Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), displays a video of the blind-spot view for a safe lane change. Similarly, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) helps avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles on the left or right side of the vehicle while reversing.

The latest member of the IONIQ line-up brand also assures the safety of backseat passengers with Safe Exit Warning (SEW), which provides a warning when a vehicle is approaching from the rear side while getting out of the vehicle. A variety of parking convenience features make parking in a variety of circumstances easier and safer than ever before, including Forward/Side/Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA), which helps avoid collisions with pedestrians and objects around the vehicle while parking or exiting.
