Audi A5, Volvo S90 and Hyundai Ioniq get ANCAP tick…
The latest round of crash testing has garnered no great surprises with three new models available, or coming soon to Australia, scoring five-star ratings.
While the new Hyundai hybrid – the Ioniq, also qualified for the maximum safety rating and that’s ahead of the models arrival here a little later in the year.
ANCAP CEO James Goodwin welcomed the results.
“The Audi A5, which is equipped with an ‘active’ bonnet and advanced AEB system which can detect and avoid collisions with pedestrians, scored highly,”
“As expected, the Volvo S90 features a range of advanced safety technologies and its standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system performed extremely well, with complete collision avoidance in all scenarios and at all test speeds.”
“The safety specification of S90 models sold locally does however differ to those sold in Europe with no driver knee airbag.
“It is disappointing we continue to see this happen.” Mr Goodwin said.
The ANCAP CEO says the new Hyundai model performed well.
“Autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and reversing collision avoidance are standard on all variants of the Hyundai Ioniq.
“Lane support systems and a manual speed limiter are also standard features adding to its top safety credentials.”
