Earlier this year, Hyundai launched the new Creta Facelift and the Stargazer MPV in the Indonesian market. Both these models were recently crash-tested by the New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP). This test has been done under the ASEAN NCAP 2021-2025 evaluation protocol.
ASEAN NCAP has awarded the new Hyundai Creta a 5-star crash test rating. On the other hand, Stargazer has achieved a 4-star score in the new ASEAN NCAP assessment protocol. Earlier, the Creta model sold in the Indian market was given a 3-star rating by Global NCAP.
The new Hyundai Creta has scored 34.72 points for adult protection, 15.56 points for child occupant protection and 14.08 points for safety assistance and 11.42 points for motorcyclist safety.
Safety Features of Hyundai Creta Facelift
The Creta used for the ASEAN NCAP test comes with 2 airbags. However, the top variants of the SUV get 6 airbags. The SUV gets electronic stability control (ESC), an anti-lock braking system (ABS), a seatbelt reminder system, ISOFIX installation for child seats and safety for pedestrian passengers.
Apart from this, the new Creta also gets ADAS technology with features like automatic emergency braking; lane keeps assisting, lane change alert, auto high beam and blind spot detection. Apart from this, the SUV also gets some safety features as an optional fitment.
Hyundai Creta Facelift gets RCCA safety.
Hyundai is offering RCCA in the Creta. It is a technical fitment with motorcycle safety and child presence detection technology. RCCA is an additional safety technology that Hyundai has highlighted in the valuation. It can detect the presence of vehicles coming from the left or right while reversing at low speed. This technology will initially alert the driver to alert, but it will automatically help apply brakes when the risk of a collision increases.
