The Chinese organization C-NCAP has assessed the safety of the Hyundai Sonata sedan of the 8th generation (DN8). According to the results of all tests, the Korean model scored 88.3%, which is equivalent to five stars in the rating.

Chinese experts crashed the Hyundai Sonata sedan to test how safe it is for drivers, passengers and pedestrians. So, for the protection of passengers, the sedan received 90.64%, the safety of pedestrians is worse guaranteed – 65.57%. But the preventive security systems scored the maximum 100%.

Experts from C-NCAP liked that the Sonata coped well with frontal and side collisions. The airbags deployed in time protected the heads of the driver and passenger from impact, and the power structure of the body was not damaged.

The C-CNAP team evaluates the car based on the results of several tests, summarizing the points scored.
In Europe, the Hyundai Sonata is not represented, so Euro NCAP experts did not come across this sedan. But the Institute for Highway Safety of America (NHTSA) tested the sedan and gave it a well-deserved five stars.

Earlier our portal said that Mercedes-Benz dealers in Europe began to accept pre-orders for the hybrid sedan S 580. Externally, the novelty is not much different from the usual modifications of the model.
