2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Awarded Top Safety Rating by IIHS

September 1st, 2021 by

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe has just earned a Top Safety Pick + (TSP+) designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Santa Fe is being recognized for meeting all six IIHS crash-worthiness evaluations and even further improved headlight performance. Hyundai’s continued commitment to safety is shown in full effect as the safest vehicle brand on the road, tying with Volvo for the top spot with 15 TSP or TSP+ safety ratings on its lineup of Hyundai and Genesis vehicles including every single Hyundai SUV available in the lineup.

“Safety is paramount at Hyundai, as evidenced by every vehicle in our SUV lineup earning an IIHS Top Safety or Top Safety Pick+ designation,” 

said Brian Latouf, chief safety officer, Hyundai Motor North America. 

“Through R&D and HMMA collaborative hard work we were able to improve the Santa Fe’s LED-headlamp performance to meet the stringent testing demands by IIHS. We are extremely proud of the 2022 Santa Fe’s recent TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating and continuing Hyundai’s industry leadership in IIHS awards.”

How do Vehicles Qualify for Top Safety Picks?

In order to qualify for IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, the more prestigious of the Institute’s two awards, vehicles must earn good ratings in all six IIHS crash-worthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side roof strength, and head restraint tests. Additionally, vehicles must be available with a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations and good or acceptable headlights must be standard across all trim levels.

Value Beyond Safety

As part of the Hyundai Lineup, the 2022 Santa Fe and all other Hyundai vehicles receive America’s Best Warranty for no extra cost. This includes an industry-best 10 year / 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5 year / 60,000-mile comprehensive warranty. On top of this, don’t pay for any scheduled maintenance for the first 3 years or 36,000 miles of vehicle ownership with Hyundai’s Complimentary Maintenance Program.
