Commitment to Safety

Since its beginnings, Hyundai has actively endeavoured to make the safest car possible. In fact, Hyundai's safety philosophy asks its employees to create a car safe enough for themselves and their families. To standby this philosophy, Hyundai's range of vehicles include the best and latest array of safety design and technology including elements of active and passive safety. Today, all of Hyundai Motor Company's Design, Research & Development and Production are totally focused on to achieve the highest globally recognised safety ratings.

What is Active Safety?

Active safety features assist drivers to prevent accidents. A vehicle's tyres, brakes, handling, acceleration, and visibility all make important contributions to active crash avoidance.

What is Passive Safety?

Passive safety features protect drivers in the case of an unfortunate accident. For example, features like chassis design, reinforced cabin shells, crumple zones, bumpers, air bags, side intrusion beams and roll over bars will give drivers the best chance of survival. Through constant research, development and innovation Hyundai has developed and optimised a number of state-of-the-art safety technologies including:

Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) varies the force placed on each of the brakes, depending on variables such as speed, road conditions and weight distribution in the vehicle. This change in braking pressure on each wheel helps boost the vehicle's stopping power and shorten braking distance.

Traction Control System (TCS) enables a safe, smooth acceleration from a stopped position and prevents wheel spin when the car is in motion. The system also improves driving performance by controlling wheel rotation and adjusting engine power according to the conditions.
