By  AIS Windshield Experts


Hyundai Verna Safety Rating – Verna Score 5 star in Global NCAP

The made-in-India Hyundai Verna has achieved the maximum 5-star adult safety rating in crash tests conducted by Global NCAP. This makes the Verna Car one of the safest sedans in its segment.

Global NCAP, or New Car Assessment Program, is an international watchdog organization that conducts crash tests on new vehicles to assess their safety standards. The latest tests evaluated the India-spec Verna’s structural integrity and occupant protection in a frontal collision.

Impressive Results Across All Parameters

In the full-frontal crash test at 64km/h, the Hyundai Verna scored 16.03 out of 17 points for adult occupant protection. It achieved more than 80% in each of the four key areas -

  • Head protection was good with 87.89%
  • Passenger chest protection scored maximum points at 100%
  • Driver chest protection was an excellent 92.48%
  • Knee protection was also very good at 82.39%

The bodyshell was rated stable as well. Such a robust performance shows that Hyundai has designed and built the India-made Verna to be extremely safe in severe head-on collisions.

Life Saving Side Impact Protection

In the side impact test simulating a striking vehicle at 50km/h, the Verna’s occupant compartment remained stable. The scorecard was excellent here as well:

  • Head protection (adult) - Good at 84%
  • Chest protection (adult) - Good at 50%
  • Knee protection (adult) - Good at 77%
  • Pelvis protection (adult) - Adequate at 42%

The high scores in this grueling test are thanks to the Verna’s reinforced structure, side impact beams, and seven airbags - dual front, side, and curtain bags.

Child Safety Features Also Perform Well

Along with adult occupants, child passengers need ample protection, too. Here’s how the Verna performed in Global NCAP’s child safety assessments:

  • 3 year old child dummy protection was good with 41.68 points
  • 1.5 year old infant dummy protection scored acceptable at 39.34 points
  • ISOFIX child seat anchors are standard
  • The car has a lap belt in the rear middle seat
  • The vehicle offers at least a lap belt in all rear seating positions
  • The car has anti-rotation devices for the ISOFIX in the outboard seats.

The results demonstrate Hyundai’s commitment to protecting little passengers. Families can ride confidently in the Verna.

Structural Solidity and Top Safety Tech Protect Occupants

Hyundai’s engineers have packed effective safety technologies into the India-made Verna:

  • Reinforced body structure absorbs impact force and resists deformation
  • Dual front airbags, side airbags, and curtain airbags cushion occupants
  • Pretensioners tighten seatbelts in a crash to limit dangerous movement
  • ISOFIX anchors securely fasten child seats
  • Anti-lock brakes prevent skidding even during hard emergency braking
  • Electronic stability control maintains grip and stopping power on slick surfaces
  • Rear parking sensors and camera avoid collisions when maneuvering
  • High-strength steel creates a rigid safety cell for occupants
  • Pedestrian protection features soften blows to reduce injuries

This combination of a sturdy body, airbags, and active accident prevention systems contributed to the Verna’s fantastic 5-star showing.

Hyundai Leads the Charge on Safety in India

The Hyundai Verna is the latest in a line of made-in-India Hyundai cars, scoring 5 stars for adult occupants in Global NCAP testing. Other top performers include:

  • Hyundai i20 with 6 airbags
  • Hyundai Grand i10 Nios with 4 airbags
  • Hyundai Aura subcompact sedan

Upcoming Hyundai Creta SUV

As car buyers become more safety conscious, Hyundai strives to exceed expectations and set higher benchmarks. For Indian automakers, achieving top marks in these unbiased Global NCAP assessments represents a badge of engineering honor.

Hyundai plans to eventually outfit all vehicles in its lineup with six airbags as standard. This pledge shows they are serious about making safety accessible to Indian consumers rather than a luxury reserved only for premium models.

The Bottom Line

With the Verna earning a perfect 5-star rating, Hyundai shows that global safety standards are attainable for made-in-India cars. The impressive results stem from smart structural design, effective airbags, and advanced accident avoidance technologies.

For anyone shopping for a family sedan or first car in India, the Hyundai Verna deserves a top spot on the test drive list. Drivers and passengers of all ages can ride protected in a Verna secured with the assurance of 5 stars.
