The 2024 Hyundai Elantra and Tucson have been honored with the prestigious IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick+ Award. This recognition places these vehicles at the pinnacle of safety performance in their respective categories.

To attain the esteemed TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation for the year 2023, a vehicle must undergo rigorous testing and excel in various crucial aspects of safety. Among the criteria are obtaining a good rating in critical scenarios such as the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, original moderate overlap front, and updated side tests. Additionally, the vehicle must be equipped with headlights that earn either acceptable or good ratings across all trims. Another key requirement is the availability of a front crash prevention system that achieves advanced or superior ratings in both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

In contrast, the lower-tier TOP SAFETY PICK award has slightly less stringent criteria. Here, an acceptable rating in the updated side test is sufficient, and only an advanced or superior rating in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian test is necessary.

The Hyundai Elantra and Tucson stand out by meeting all the requirements for the coveted “plus” designation. The Elantra, for instance, boasts a standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in both daytime and nighttime pedestrian tests. Moreover, all trims come equipped with headlights that have been rated as good, ensuring consistent safety across the entire lineup.

Similarly, the Tucson secures its place among the safest vehicles with a standard front crash prevention system that achieves a superior rating in the daytime test and an advanced rating in the nighttime evaluation. The availability of two headlight variations on different trims ensures flexibility for consumers, and both options have received an acceptable rating.

Hyundai’s commitment to safety is evident in these accolades, showcasing not only the brand’s dedication to meeting rigorous industry standards but also its drive to provide customers with vehicles that prioritize their well-being on the road. The recognition by IIHS reinforces the Hyundai Elantra and Tucson as leaders in automotive safety for the year 2024.
