​Hyundai Tucson scores good marks in IIHS

It’s not all about looks with the new Tucson, it’s also the safest car in its class.


Looks like the newly introduced Hyundai Tucson is not just good to look at and good to drive (wait for the review in August) but also a safe car as well. 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently carried another set of small-overlap crash testing on a number of cars. The Hyundai Tucson was the only vehicle of the its class to have received good ratings for both driver and passenger categories. 

Hyundai is especially proud to have been rated to offer outstanding crash protection as the IIHS holds one of the most demanding crash tests in the world.

“At Hyundai, we continually strive to provide outstanding passenger safety to our customers, regardless of vehicle size or price,” said Mike O’Brien, Vice President of Corporate and Product Planning at Hyundai Motor America. “Tucson’s good rating for both driver and passenger in the demanding IIHS small overlap crash test reflects our commitment to passenger safety at every level. We’re certainly proud of our Tucson’s industry-leading performance in the small SUV category.”
