Collision Preparation
Technology

For all road conditions and unanticipated situations, your safety is at the forefront of Hyundai Motors’
innovation to make every journey a pleasure.

AHSS(Advanced High Strength Steel)

Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) is 10% lighter and 200% stronger in material than a regular steel plate. Mainly applied to the parts in the crushable zones and the passengers’ cabin, the vehicle’s structural rigidity is effectively maximized to provide enhanced passenger protection. In particular, the extensive hot-stamping process of AHSS applied into the B-pillar ensures greater safety for all occupants from potentially hazardous impacts or imminent collisions.

Closed Circular
Structure

Vertical and horizontal rails collide to form a closed circular structure similar to a skein to reinforce the structural rigidity
and to add lightness to the chassis.

Load Path

The sequential-order structure absorbs the kinetic energy from a high-speed collision to protect all passengers. In order to effectively disperse the impact load in case of a side impact collision, a bulkhead is attached to where the most energy impact may occur to maximize all occupants’ safety.

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  • 1.State prior to impact

  • 2.Energy absorption is generated if the vehicle collides off the front side member.

  • 3.The fender apron serves to transfer the impact load.

  • 4.Impact load is transferred to the upper A-pillar and the remaining impact load is further dispersed.

Seat Belt Pretensioners

Using the seat belt pretensioner technology, occupant’s seat belt is retracted and firmly tightened prior to the full impact in position for the air bag to be effectively deployed. To provide maximum protection benefits of the air bag, the seat belt is then gently released to further minimize the risk of injuries. In addition, Hyundai’s pre-safe seat belt feature keeps all occupants in a secure position during emergency braking or loss of control.

  1. 1

    In the event of a crash, seat
    belt is tightened.

  2. 2

    Once the occupant’s seat is
    securely fastened, air bag is
    deployed.

  3. 3

    Seat belt is released after
    the collision to help minimize
    injury.

Active Hood
System

A vehicle with a protruding bumper can cause pedestrian accidents such as severe fractures or head injuries. To prevent such secondary accident and to minimize the impact between the pedestrian and the vehicle, the active hood system along with the energy-absorbing bumper raises the vehicle hood into an elevated position and reduces the bumper stiffness to ensure maximum pedestrian protection.

Air Bag

With the convenient air bag system that instantly activates when there is a direct impact, we’ve got you covered from all corners. Depowered air bag takes extra care to prevent the injury of small children and adults while the advanced air bag deployment is based on each occupant’s seating position, thanks to the smart sensor that also determines the ideal time of action for you and your passengers to feel comfortable and safe in any seating position.

EASC(Energy Absorbing Steering Column)

With the airbag in the steering wheel absorbing the kinetic energy from the impact during a collision,
the energy-absorbing steering column mechanism promotes safety for all drivers by effectively
reducing the chance of severe injuries or fatality risk in the event of a front-end collision.

  1. 1
