Hyundai Motor has introduced a more safer version of three of its flagship models - the Creta and Venue SUVs and the i20 premium hatchback. The carmaker has now added three-point seat belt as a standard feature across all variants in these three models. Creta and Venue, two of Hyundai's best-selling cars in India, along with other models were recently introduced with updated engines to make them compatible with the new BS6 Phase 2 emission rules and RDE norms earlier this month.

The new safety feature introduced in the Hyundai models are in line with the Centre's latest guidelines. According to the government, all cars in India should come with six airbags as mandatory along with three-point seat belts to offer more safety for occupants. It is expected that the Centre will soon modify the Motor Vehicles Act soon to accommodate these changes and implement them as new rules.
