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.

Dual frontal airbags, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting airbags (curtains) are standard equipment.

All three grades of autonomous emergency braking (City, Interurban & Vulnerable Road User) as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK) are standard.

The side curtain airbag was found to have torn during initial crash tests. Hyundai has implemented production changes for new vehicles, and a recall has been initiated for vehicles already in service.

Some variants of the Santa Fe are equipped with a Child Presence Alert, to warn the driver if a child is left in the vehicle, and a Safe Exit Assist system that locks the doors to prevent exit if an approaching vehicle is detected.

In the side impact test, GOOD protection was provided for the driver. Two issues were identified with the curtain airbag during the frontal offset and side impact tests - the airbag was torn and a portion of the airbag became caught on the upper belt anchorage of the C-pillar during deployment. Hyundai investigated this issue and a change has been made to vehicles in production. A recall has been initiated to rectify affected vehicles in Australia. Following production changes, the side impact test was repeated and confirmed the tearing of the airbag had been resolved, however the airbag again caught on the upper belt anchorage of the C-pillar and did not deploy as intended. As a result, penalties have been applied to both the side impact and oblique pole test scores.

Whiplash Protection Test

Rear: 0.09 points

Front: 1.25 points

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, neck tension in the 6 year and 10 year dummies indicated ACCEPTABLE and MARGINAL protection respectively, but that of other body regions was GOOD.

In the side impact test, which was repeated following rectification of the airbag issue, protection of both the 6 and 10 year dummies was GOOD for all body regions.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the second row outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all second row seating positions. Top tethers are not available in the third row.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed GOOD results for those positions where a top tether anchorage is provided.

Installation of child restraints in the third row is not recommended as there are no top tether anchorages.

 

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet provided predominantly GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian with some WEAK and POOR results recorded at the base of the windscreen, on the windscreen pillars and on the leading edge of the bonnet.

Protection of the pelvis area was GOOD or MARGINAL, while the bumper showed an ADEQUATE level of protection to the legs in most areas.

The autonomous emergency braking system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The effectiveness of the AEB system in night-time scenarios was MARGINAL, while in daytime conditions, detecting and braking was ADEQUATE for pedestrians and MARGINAL for cyclists.
