13 Feb 2018 | International News : U.S.A


The 2018 Hyundai Elantra has earned the highest safety rating by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) with a Top Safety Pick+ rating when equipped with optional Automatic Emergency Braking and High Beam Assist on vehicles built after December 2017. The Hyundai Sonata, Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport (built after June 2017) also have Top Safety Pick+ ratings. The announcement marks a total of four Hyundai vehicles attaining the significant safety achievement, making Hyundai one of the leading brands for Top Safety Pick+ and Top Safety Pick awards in 2018.

To qualify for the Top Safety Pick award, vehicles must have good ratings in five IIHS crashworthiness tests - small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints, an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good head light rating. For the Top Safety Pick+ designation, vehicles must also gain an acceptable or good rating in passenger-side small overlap front tests and improved head light rating.

The Elantra offers a wide array of advanced safety technologies, often reserved for luxury cars, to provide another defensive safety layer for its passengers beyond the standard safety system. These include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist System, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, and a rearview camera, now with dynamic guidance.
