Hyundai scores top marks for safety again

The South Korean car firm has scored top marks once again for the quality of its cars in safety tests.

The latest vehicle to rack up the maximum five point score is the New Generation Santa Fe in the Euro NCAP.

It’s a great achievement which puts the 4x4 ahead of its more popular rivals the Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

It also joins Hyundai’s other models with the same score – the New i20, ix20, ix35, i40, Veloster and the New Generation i30.

New Generation Santa Fe gets top marks

The New Generation Santa Fe is now rated by the independent safety organisation as being the safest large 4x4 of 2012.

It did extremely well in the child and adult occupants safety categories and in the side barrier test.

The car’s electronic stability control –which helps control power to the wheels when you need it most – also help reach a high score in the safety assist section.

This is also the first Hyundai to fitted with the firm’s active safety bonnet which helps protects pedestrians should they be hit by the 4x4.

The Hyundais which are designed and built in Europe are of exceptional quality which is why they can offer an incredible after care package – and one that has made other manufacturers sit up and take notice about what customers want.

Why buying an Hyundai makes sense

All models in the Hyundai line-up come with the firm’s five year package which offers unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance and vehicle health check-ups in the first five years.

So if you’re looking for a well made large 4x4 which does well in safety tests – and is a pretty good drive to boot – then the Hyundai New Generation Santa Fe should be on your list of vehicles to road test before purchasing.

However, it might be an idea to check out the New Generation Santa Fe for leasing costs since this would probably be a cheaper option of ownership.
