2016 Hyundai Elantra and Kia Picanto get five-star ANCAP rating

With an overall score of 35.01 out of a possible 37 points, the Elantra scored full marks in a number of areas including side-impact crash testing (16 out of 16), as well as pole-impact testing (2 out of 2).

Its seat belt reminders also scored maximum marks (3 out of 3).

“The Elantra performed well in crash testing and is another sound addition to Hyundai’s fleet which sits well with its competitors in the small passenger vehicle market,” ANCAP CEO, James Goodwin said.

Despite receiving top honours, Goodwin feels there is still room for improvement.

“Advanced safety assist technologies are unfortunately lacking on the Elantra, and Hyundai – along with other manufacturers – should step up and include technologies such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB) on all models,” he said.

The result now means all current-generation Hyundai passenger cars and SUVs carry the coveted five-star rating.

This comes after the 2016 Hyundai Tuscon also achieved the same rating, following a redesign earlier this year. The family SUV initially scored a sub-par four-star rating after its local launch in late 2015.
