25 August 2011 - The all-new Hyundai i40 has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by independent vehicle assessment organisation, Euro NCAP. The results of the rigorous test process mark out the i40 as one of the safest vehicles in the D-segment. The i40 is the fifth consecutive Hyundai model to achieve the maximum five-star score in Euro NCAP's rigorous assessment program.

The D-segment i40 received a rating of 92% in the 'adult occupant' category, registering maximum points in the side barrier test. Furthermore, the head restraint and seat were praised for providing good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
