The tested model of Hyundai Santa Fe was introduced in Australia in August 2012. This ANCAP rating applies to all Australasian variants with 4 cylinder engines and all-wheel-drive. The V6 New Zealand variant is unrated.

The Santa Fe scored 15.63 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.

Important note: The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the results apply to 4 cylinder Australasian variants with all-wheel-drive.

The side impact test simulates a 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 Santa Fe. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test and the vehicle scored full marks.

The vehicle was eligible for a pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this test.

Pedestrian Summary

This is a provisional rating. Upper leg tests are pending but will not change the rating. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP had a pop-up bonnet. The Australasian vehicle does not have this feature and so ANCAP arranged separate tests which showed that pedestrian protection was worse than the European model.

Five Star Safety Rating For Many Used Cars Without Breaking The Bank

Used cars can offer great value, particularly for those on low budgets who can’t afford showroom expenses. But not all used cars are principally safe – in fact, a driver in the worst rated vehicle in this year’s Used Car Safety Ratings is ten times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than a driver in a vehicle in the safest category.
