Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5
  • Five-star Euro NCAP safety rating
  • Lots of driver assistance tech is standard
  • Proves to be a very safe SUV

The Nexo achieved a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating when it was assessed in 2018.

It also features Hyundai’s latest suite of driver-assistance technology, which allows the car to effectively drive for you in some situations, taking care of steering, braking and accelerating.

One particularly impressive safety-boosting technology is the blindspot package that shows views from rearward-facing cameras in the digitised instrument binnacle – showing an image of what’s in your blindspot and not just an orange or red light. 

We tested this on the highway during our initial test drive in Korea and found it worked smoothly and reliably.

The full list of safety and driver assistance tech standard on the Nexo consists of:

  • Nexo is a spacious family SUV
  • Room for four adults
  • Boot spacious is fairly generous

We have no idea how it would fare off-road or when towing, but the Nexo is as practical as an SUV needs to be. The boot is a usefully large 471 litres and has a flat floor and ski flap for loading longer items.

The cabin fits four adults easily and in comfort, but five is a bit of a squash. The front seats in particular are great, with loads of support, heating and ventilation and electronic adjustability.

The Nexo doesn’t feel too cumbersome to drive either, and with good visibility it’s very easy to judge the car’s extremities in tighter car parks and streets. And if you’re not feeling confident, all-round cameras and the ability for it to park itself should help make life a little easier.
