Ford Focus vs Hyundai i30 - The passenger compartment of the Focus remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger dummy. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions.

In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the chest of the driver and rear passenger occupants was rated as adequate, with good protection of all other critical body areas. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and the Focus scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole impact, protection was good for everything except the chest, which was adequately protected.

Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good whiplash protection.

The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds typical of city driving. However, the points for AEB City were not awarded as good front head restraint performance is a pre-requisite for the the additional reward for active safety.

Good protection was provided to both the 6 and the 10 year dummies in the frontal offset and side barrier tests, the Focus scoring maximum points for this part of the assessment.

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.

The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, with some poor results only on the stiff windscreen pillars. Protection of the pelvis was also good or adequate, with the bumper scoring maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs.

The autonomous emergency braking system performed well or adequately in all tests of its pedestrian and cyclist detection, in daylight and low-light conditions.

Hyundai i30
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset impact. Dummy readings from the driver's knee indicated adequate protection. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the driver and passenger and protection of the knee/femur/pelvis area was downgraded to marginal. Otherwise, protection of both dummies was good or adequate.

In the full-width rigid-barrier test, and also in the side barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was at least adequate. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy measurements of chest deformation indicated marginal protection for that part of the body.

Tests on the front seats and head restraints indicated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection there.

The i30 has, as standard, an autonomous emergency braking system. Tests of the system at the low speeds typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused, showed good performance.

In the frontal offset test, protection of the 10 year dummy was good or adequate. Dummy readings of chest deceleration in the 6 year dummy indicated marginal protection. In the side barrier test, both dummies were well protected and maximum points were scored.

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraints for which the i30 is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.

The bonnet surface provided good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian but performance was weak and poor in tests around the windscreen pillars. The protection provided to pedestrians' legs by the bumper was good at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was also predominantly good.

An autonomous emergency braking system which detects pedestrians is available as an option but was not assessed as part of this rating as it is not standard equipment.

      But focus test is later and euroncap made harder to achieve 5 star 2018...so focus is better!
