Hyundai Literally Unleashes Baboons on New i30 Hatchback

A brand new 2012 Hyundai i30 was left alone in a baboon-infested park for an incredible ten hour, just to see how it would withstand some punishment. Baboons are known to be not only some of the most destructive animals on the planet, but smart as well. As General Manager of the park, David Ross, explains, "These baboons are incredibly inquisitive. If you put them on any car, they will scour it for the weak points and find any faults. At one point, there were 40 monkeys in the car, pushing it to its limits - that's 10 times the size of the average human family."1

The point of the testing was to see how the new Hyundai i30 hatchback would hold up under the most extreme circumstances. While we do not expect your child to be as rough on your new Hyundai as baboons, it was a great test to measure durability and quality of build. This test would determine just how durable every aspect of the Hyundai i30 was, from the seats, to buttons and much more. Hyundai has also stated that the tests will help it to make more educated decisions concerning the research and development of future vehicles.
