Comments

Euro NCAP is informed that the Hyundai ix20 is structurally identical to the Kia Venga and has the same interior fittings and levels of safety equipment. Accordingly, Euro NCAP believes that the star rating of the Venga can also be applied to the Hyundai ix20.

Adult occupant
In the frontal test, the passenger compartment remained stable. Protection of the driver's chest was rated as marginal. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of the front seat occupants. However, the steering column and ignition barrel presented a risk of injury to the driver's femurs. In the side barrier impact, the car scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole test, dummy readings indicated marginal protection of the chest and good protection of other parts of the body. Protection of the neck against whiplash injuries in a rear-end impact was good.

Child occupant
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, was not excessive and the rebound was well controlled. In the side barrier impact, both dummies were properly contained by their respective restraints. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. A permanent label warns clearly of the risks of using a rearward facing restraint in the front passenger seat without first disabling the airbag.

Pedestrian
The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet provided marginal protection. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child, the bonnet offered good protection but was predominantly poor in the areas where an adult's head might strike.

Safety assist
As Electronic Stability Control (ESC) it is to be fitted as standard in the great majority of sales, it has been included in Euro NCAP's assessment of the car. A seatbelt reminder system is standard equipment for the driver, front passenger and rear seats. As the rear seat system is not available on the Kia Venga which was assessed, the score has not been included in the rating of the ix20.
