2022 Hyundai Tucson Awarded Top Safety Rating from IIHS
The All-New redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson is the latest member of the Hyundai vehicle lineup to receive a 2021 Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+) from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). The Tucson is the 14th model in the 2022 Hyundai and Genesis vehicle lineup to receive a TSP or TSP + safety rating. Hyundai’s unwavering commitment to “safety first” has resulted in Hyundai being a top contender in automotive safety technology year after year.
“Hyundai’s commitment to ‘safety first’ is our highest priority,”
said Brian Latouf, chief safety officer, Hyundai Motor North America.
“We are extremely proud of the 2022 Tucson’s recent TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating and continuing Hyundai’s industry leadership in IIHS awards. Our commitment to safety is paramount.”
How Do Vehicles Qualify for TSP+?
In order to qualify for a IIHS Top Safety Pick+ which is the highest safety rating offered, 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, regardless of trim level.
“The Tucson is available with two different front crash prevention systems, one standard and one optional,”
said Joe Young, public affairs, IIHS.
“Both systems earned superior ratings in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.”
