New Delhi: Hyundai launched the new Creta facelift and Stargazer MPV in the Indonesian market earlier this year. Both models were recently evaluated in the Southeast Asian New Car Assessment Program (ASEAN NCAP).
The Creta and Stargazer were the first of Hyundai’s SUV and MPV models to be tested by the ASEAN NCAP and are being tested under the new 2021-2025 ASEAN NCAP assessment protocol.
Hyundai Creta Scores 5 Stars rating
The new Hyundai Creta received 5 stars in ASEAN NCAP crash tests. On the other hand, the Stargazer scored 4 stars in the latest ASEAN NCAP assessment report. As a reminder, the model on sale in our market received 3 stars in Global NCAP.
The new Hyundai Creta scored 34.72 points for adult protection, 15.56 points for child passenger protection and 14.08 points for safety assistant and 11.42 points for motorcyclist safety.
The Creta used for the ASEAN NCAP test is equipped with 2 airbags; however, higher SUV variants are also equipped with 6 airbags. The SUV will get electronic stability control (ESC), anti-lock braking system (ABS), seat belt warning system, ISOFIX installation for child seats and pedestrian protection technology.
Apart from this, the new Creta also has ADAS technology with features like autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic high beams and blind spot detection. In addition, the SUV is also equipped with Child Presence Detection and Rear Collision Avoidance Assist for Motorcycle as optional equipment.
Hyundai offers RCCA, motorcycle safety technology and child presence detection technology in the Creta SUV. RCCA is another safety technology highlighted by Hyundai in the evaluation, in which it is able to detect the presence of an approaching vehicle, either from the left or the right, when reversing at low speed. The technology first alerts the driver, but automatically assists with braking if the risk of a collision increases.
