Safer than ever

Inside IONIQ, you are safer than ever.  It’s like having you're own personal bodyguard beside you whenever you're behind the wheel of the IONIQ: It gives total peace of mind. With Lane Keep Assist System, Automatic Emergency Braking and other advanced safety systems, IONIQ provides numerous layers of protection so that you can drive with complete confidence.

7-airbag system

Enjoy complete protection thanks to 7-airbags: a pair of front airbags for both front occupants and a knee airbag for the driver. A pair of side airbags (front only) and full-length curtain airbags defend against side collisions.

IONIQ high strength steel
Advanced high-strength steel

The usage of advanced high-strength steel alloy has been expanded to 53 percent of the body structure. To attain unprecedented levels of structural rigidity, critical components were fabricated using advanced hot stamping technology.

Blind spot detection (BSD)

Protecting when you're at your most vulnerable, the blind spot detection (BSD) system on the Elite model is like having a second pair of eyes watching out for your safety.  It constantly monitors the blind spot and will alert to the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot.

Smart Cruise Control
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

Smart cruise control does much more than maintain a preset speed. The smart function automatically maintains a safe distance between you and the car ahead by using throttle and brake intervention. The system automatically deactivates below 10km/h.

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)

Representing one of the most important advancements in automotive safety, AEB monitors the vehicle ahead and will automatically apply the brakes and bring the IONIQ to a safe stop thus minimizing the risk of a collision. AEB also includes pedestrian detection capabilities.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

LDWS uses optical sensors to continuously monitor the lane markings on the roadway. If you begin to depart your lane without a prior lane change signal, LDWS will automatically issue audible and visual alerts reminding you to take corrective action.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

LKAS uses camera sensor to continuously monitor the lane markings on the roadway. If you depart your lane without a prior lane change signal, LKAS will automatically issue audible and visual alerts.

Safety window adjustment control system

For extra safety, sensors automatically lower the windows by 150 mm upon detecting any obstructions in the frame.
