Hyundai Ties for Most Combined IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ and TOP SAFETY PICK Awards

Today, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has announced winners for its prestigious TOP SAFETY PICK+ and TOP SAFETY PICK awards. To be awarded the TOP SAFETY PICK award, a vehicle must provide significant protection for passengers in the event of a collision, such as passing rigorous front, side, and roof strength tests, head restraint tests, offer available acceptable or good headlights, and offer at minimum an advanced rating for available front crash prevention features for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian collisions. For the TOP SAFETY PICK+, the vehicle must meet all criteria listed with the TOP SAFETY PICK award plus offer acceptable or good headlights standard. We are proud to say that Hyundai has tied for the most combined IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) and TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) awards, making this brand one of the safest in the nation.
