The India-made 2015 Hyundai i10 hatchback recently underwent ASEAN-NCAP’s scrutiny and came out with some really disappointing results. The 2015 model scored just one-star rating in Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) as it scored just 4.40 points out of 16 points.
However, the car did well in the Child Occupant Protection (COP) and scored 38.69 points out of 49, thus receiving a 4-Star rating. The tested variant was equipped with dual frontal airbag which is offered as an optional package similar with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Seatbelt Reminder (SBR) for driver only is standard across variant while Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is not available.
The specific model that was tested in the safety rating program was a Malaysia-spec i10 which is called as the Epsilon in that market.
Below is the ASEAN NCAP report on the 2015 Hyundai i10:
ASEAN NCAP recently performed an audit test on Hyundai i10 in order to check of any upgrades and consistency on the model’s safety performance upon its first result release in Phase 1. The result shows that it did not do very well in the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) by only scoring 4.4o points, which is in 1-Star category. Nevertheless, it fared well in the Child Occupant Protection (COP) with 79% compliance, in the range of 4-Star rating; ISOFIX and top tether are available. Although the tested variant was equipped with dual frontal airbag, it is offered as optional package similar with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Seatbelt Reminder (SBR) for driver only is standard across variant. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is not available.
