IONIQ 6 Offers the highest level of safety and convenience on the road

When it comes to safety, there really is no room for compromise.

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 is Euro NCAP’s’ Best in Class’ 2022 in the’ Large Family Car’ category, making it one of the safest EVs on the European market.

Following on from last year’s maximum five-star safety rating, the IONIQ 6 Electrified Streamliner achieved “exceptionally high results” in ‘Adult Occupant Protection’ with a score of 97 per cent, claiming first place in the category.

The IONIQ 6 is equipped with seven airbags as standard and features such as Hyundai’s Smart Sense Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to promote passenger safety. This includes Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2), which helps to maintain a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway and helps to centre the vehicle in the lane while driving. It can even overtake the vehicle in front. HDA 2 allows IONOIQ 6 to reach Level 2 autonomous driving.

Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC) helps to maintain distance from the vehicle ahead and drive at a speed set by the driver by reflecting the learned driving style of the driver. It also uses the navigation system’s road information to optimise automated driving and perform speed adjustment for safe driving through corners and intersection.

Other safety features include:

  • Driver attention warning (DAW): Analyses driver’s attention, providing warnings and recommendations when rests are needed.
  • Navigation-based smart cruise control (NSCC): Learns the driver’s preferred style to help maintain vehicle distance and speed.
  • Forward collision-avoidance assistant (FCA): Provides emergency braking and warnings to help avoid collisions.
  • Enhanced features: junction turning, junction crossing, lane-changing oncoming, and land-changing side with evasive steering.

Vice President of marketing at Hyundai Europe, Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, commented: “The fact that IONIQ 6 has followed IONIQ 5 in achieving the maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP is proof that not only is Hyundai a leader in future mobility, but also that our models are among the safest in Europe.” ‘Child Occupant Protection’ gave the IONOIQ 6 a score of 87 per cent, providing” good protection for all critical body regions of both the 6- and 10-year dummies in the frontal offset and side barrier tests and scored maximum points in this part of the assessment.”
