The latest batch of Euro NCAP safety tests includes the upcoming all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6 sedan, which not only received a 5- star rating but also set the bar for all E-GMP-based models.
According to the report, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 noted a near-perfect Adult Occupant protection of 97%. That’s better than the Tesla Model S (94%) and on par with the Tesla Model Y (97%).
The Child Occupant protection is also pretty solid at 87% (once again on par with the Tesla Model Y).
The Safety Assist score is 90% (that’s a full 8 percentage points below Teslas), while Vulnerable Road Users protection is estimated at 66%.
If we compare the Hyundai Ioniq 6 to other Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP-based electric cars, it turns out that the Ioniq 6 is better than the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (tested in 2021), Kia EV6 (tested in Spring 2022) and Genesis GV60 (tested in Summer 2022).
The difference is especially noticeable in the Adult Occupant Protection category, but the Ioniq 6 is slightly better also in other categories.
