Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Hyundai Santa Fe has been awarded a 4 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Australian model of HYUNDAI SANTE FE was introduced late in 2000.

The HYUNDAI SANTE FE scored 8.754 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The integrity of the passenger compartment was questionable. There was a moderate risk of serious chest and leg injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.

Important note: The left hand drive European model was used for the tests conducted by EuroNCAP. Australian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australia might provide different levels of protection than those described on this page.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

In practice dual front airbags are now standard, as are ABS brakes. (Although front passenger airbags and ABS brakes are listed as optional it is difficult to obtain a new vehicle without these options).

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. These seat belts also have load limiters.

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test but there were signs of structural instability. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 95mm and upwards - 21mm. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 26mm, downwards 14mm and sideways 36mm. The front (A) pillar moved 49mm rearwards. The dash rail was starting to separate from the front pillar. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Metal brackets behind the dash and steering column components were potential sources of knee injury for the driver. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. There were potential sources of knee injury for the passenger.

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

This test simulates a fairly small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Sante Fe. Such vehicles can be expected to perform relatively well in this particular side impact test.

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points, giving a maximum possible overall score of 34 points.
