  • Child occupant safety was rated 12.68 percent.

Hyundai Verna has put up a discouraging score of zero stars in the Latin NCAP( New Car Assessment Programme) crash test. The crash-tested model came with a driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD, driver seat belt reminder, and ISOFIX child seat mounts as the basic.

The sedan scored a meager 13 percent in child occupant safety and nine percent in adult occupant safety. Pedestrian protection and safety assist systems were rated at fifty-three percent and seven percent, respectively.

As compared to the version crash-tested by Latin NCAP, the Indian version of Hyundai Verna is slightly better equipped in terms of safety features. In India, the Verna gets dual front airbags, impact sensing auto door unlock, ABS with EBD, seatbelt reminder and pre-tensioners for both driver and passenger, reverse parking sensors, and ISOFIX anchorages. The top-spec variants further present features like ESC, side and curtain airbags, front parking sensors, vehicle stability management (VSM), TPMS, and rear disk brakes.

The Hyundai Verna currently starts from Rs 9.28 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and competes against the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento, and the upcoming Skoda Slavia.
