When it comes to safety, Hyundai nails it! The Hyundai brand claimed more models named to the 2020 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) and TOP SAFETY PICK-rated (TSP-rated) vehicles list  than any other brand. A total of 10 Hyundai models made the cut.
 
In order to qualify as a Top Safety Pick, vehicles are required to have good ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations, along with good or acceptable headlights and available front crash prevention that earns advanced or superior ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.
 
In order to qualify as a TSP+, models must come exclusively with good or acceptable headlights. 
 
Which 2020 Hyundai models made the cut you might ask:
  • Hyundai Venue – TSP with specific headlights
  • Hyundai Kona – TSP with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights
  • Hyundai Tucson – TSP with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights
  • Hyundai Santa Fe – TSP with specific headlights

  • Hyundai Palisade – TSP with specific headlights
  • Hyundai Elantra and Elantra GT – TSP with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights

In addition, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, Sonata, Kona and Santa Fe all received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
 
Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer for Hyundai North America, said the company is proud to see its extraordinary efforts in the area of safety being rewarded.
 
“Our commitment to safety is stronger than ever,” Latouf said. “We are extremely proud that our entire SUV line has TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings. From our smallest SUV, to our hydrogen-powered Nexo, to our eight-passenger Palisade, shoppers can find a safe choice. The Hyundai brand continues to shine as an industry leader in IIHS accolades.”
