Base-model Hyundai Tucson Fails Crash Test with ZERO Stars. Hi guys! The 2021-2022 Hyundai Tucson, manufactured in South Korea, with 2 frontal airbags as standard and no standard ESC achieved zero stars under Latin NCAP latest protocols.
The Hyundai Tucson was tested in frontal impact, side impact, whiplash and pedestrian protection. The model showed good performance in the frontal impact and side impact for the adult protection, however, the lack of standard side head protection airbags limited the car to get better scoring. Whiplash protection was good. The bodyshell and footwell area were rated as stable. Child occupant protection performance was poor because the Tucson surprisingly has lap belt in the rear centre seating position as standard and also because Hyundai declined to select the Child Restraint Systems (CRS) for the tests. Pedestrian protection was over all average with poor protection to upper leg protection and low score in the head, this car does not offer Autonomous Emergency Braking for Venerable Road Users as an attempt to compensate the pedestrian protection described before in order to avoid or mitigate the impact. Safety assist showed only SBR points. The car does not offer ESC as standard as well as other relevant technologies. Optional safety equipment would certainly offer better protection and Latin América offered Hyundai to test the new version of the Tucson but the manufacturer declined the offer.
The Tucson version tested by Latin NCAP clashed in time with the new version of the model. Latin NCAP purchased the unit tested in February 2021 as Hyundai’s official representatives in 3 relevant countries confirmed that the new Tucson for Latin America was at least 2 years away. Things developed differently and the new Tucson came in to Latin NCAP during 2021. This does not invalidate this result as there are many “old” Tucsons still available as new or as second hand which can be purchased by consumers.
