Safe & sound

With a heap of clever features in the Series II i40 Sedan, you can rest assured that it's one of the safest vehicles on the road. And the proof is in the pudding, achieving a maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating for frontal and side impact.

Advanced active and passive safety technologies ensure maximum protection for all occupants. All new Cornering Brake Control (CBC) helps you maintain control while braking heavily on winding roads. Dusk sensing headlights switch on automatically when you need them. And a rear-view mirror mounted reversing camera on all models as well as front and rear parking sensors on Elite models mean you always know what’s going on around you.

Nine airbags
Nine airbags

With nine airbags, including driver and front passenger airbags, two side curtain airbags, four thorax airbags at all four outside seating positions, and a new airbag offering driver knee protection, the Series II i40 Sedan takes every possible precaution to reduce the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

A hugely reassuring feature. This innovative safety system - standard on all i40 Series II models - continuously monitors vehicle directional stability and tyre traction to help keep you in control of your vehicle. If the system senses the car is about to skid, ESC will kick in and apply the brakes over individual wheels and adapt engine power to prevent loss of control.

Ultra-high tensile steel
Advanced high strength steel (AHSS)

Hyundai’s capability to make their own high strength steel alloy is an understated benefit, and one you won’t notice until you need it. Advanced high strength steel is applied to safety-critical areas of the body shell where additional strength reinforcement is required.

ISOFIX child seat anchor points

The Series II i40 Sedan is designed to keep Kiwi families as safe as possible, with three tether child seat anchor points in the rear and ISOFIX child seat anchor points on rear outside seats.

Reversing Camera 226x226
Front and rear parking sensors and reversing camer

Four ultrasonic sensors at the front and four at the rear are automatically activated on Elite models when you get close to things, giving an audible warning which increases in intensity the closer you get. On all models, a reversing camera seals the deal with a colour image on your screen when reverse is engaged.
