Hyundai Ioniq gets a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating

Hot on the heels of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid‘s Malaysian launch, Euro NCAP has released its full report plus footages of the Ioniq’s crash test, in which the hybrid vehicle scored the full five stars.

The Ioniq’s autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system was tested against dummy vehicles and pedestrians; it managed to avoid crashing in the 50 km/h city and inter-urban tests. The Ioniq also managed to avoid a crash in the AEB pedestrian test at 45 km/h, and although the dummy was hit in the 50 km/h AEB test, the speed at impact was reduced to 25 km/h.

In Malaysia, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid gets the full safety suite, including AEB, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor as well as Smart Cruise Control in its top-spec RM111k HEV Plus guise. However, even the base RM100k HEV model gets seven airbags and electronic stability control as standard.

    So shocking Hyundai has done it. A brilliant Hybrid. All car manufacturers are moving towards Hybrid and EEV. Except one company. That is our famous Proton, who takes billions our Ringgit to keep itself alive but no innovation or inventions.

    Malaysians have been waiting 8 years now for the Proton Hybrid that Proton promised then. 8 tahun tunggu. Where lah Proton is this Hybrid you are talking about?

    Then you took hundreds of million of our LHDN money telling gomen you need to do Hybrid research.

    Then 3 years ago u paraded the Iriz EV. Again you told gomen you needed billions to reseach on EV. 3 years have passed and no EV all

    Where is all the money going to?

    Wow 5 stars, no wonder people are buying Hyundai. But Proton now also 5 stars, why are sales so bad? Preve and Iriz also 5 stars but both crs are big failures. Why?

    Hyundai just started 10 years before Proton. And yet, Hyundai got their perfect Hybrids and sells 9 million cars globally.

    Proton, just sells 57,000 cars anuually and that also, bulk of it is ordered by the Malaysian Government and Ministries as a “sedekah” to help Proton out

    57,000 cars vs 9 million cars. Something must be wrong in Proton

      I have no doubt on Proton safety especially model from Preve onward. The only thing makes P1 reverse is the “management” of P1 where they spent billions of ringgit to support crony companies in the past. As I know nowadays P1 had removed a lot of crony companies and appoint quality suppliers. One of my friend work in a steel company who supply steel part to P1, it is none crony company since the steel was imported from Korea.

      Though the safety and rigidity has improved a lot over the years, but the powertrain was so much disappointed. The engine and transmission was way behind other automakers. Other than this the after sales service MUST improve and skilled workers and advisors must be in place. Nowadays consumers are not only look at the product but also the service quality from after sales services.

      Without improve on these 2 elements P1 will still struggling for their future.

    Would love to see ASEAN NCAP doing all those tests on all new cars here in Malaysia, especially Proton and Perodua. Hoepfully AEB and Lane Keeping Assist will be enforce soon too, not just ESC. Malaysians drivers and passengers deserve to be on par with the Euros and Americos. We pipu are not dummies.

    Just for the record, how many RM 100k car gets 7 airbags & VSC.

    For RM 111k, U will get the full safety suite, including AEB, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor as well as Smart Cruise Control.

    On top of that, this Ioniq gets a 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Now that’s what I call Value for $$$.

    EURO NCAP 5 stars. AOP 91%, COP 90%. That’s Volvo Level already. In Malaysia Selling RM114k. In UK selling GBP21k. Virtually TAX Free.
