  • 2021 Tucson secured fifty-one percent in adult occupant protection.

  • Child Occupant protection score was only four percent.

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson has achieved a score of zero stars in a recent crash test conducted by the Latin New Car Assessment Programme (Latin NCAP). The 2021 Tucson is the third-gen model, and the manufacturer has moved on to a next-gen model in European and American markets, while this variant persists to be on the market in several countries, including India.

Also, note that the current Tucson on sale in India is the third-generation model and despite that, it is significantly better equipped than the version crash-tested by Latin NCAP(which was done in Korea). Thus, these test results do not apply to the model available here.

In India, the Hyundai Tucson comes furnished with safety features such as ESC, six airbags, vehicle stability management (VSM), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), three-point seat belts for all three passengers at the rear, hill-start assist control, brake assist, front and rear parking sensors with a reverse parking camera, ISOFIX anchors, and more as standard.

The only common features between the Indian and Latin-spec models are the driver-side seat belt warning, the ISOFIX anchorages, and seatbelt pre-tensioners.
