2016 Hyundai Tucson Acknowledged As Safest SUV In Its Class

When searching for a new SUV, Boston, MA car buyers are extremely concerned with safety ratings. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) put the 2016 Hyundai Tucson through its grueling series of crash tests and found that it was a true standout when compared to other small SUV models from other manufacturers. There are several reasons why the 2016 Hyundai Tucson continues to win the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award year after year.


Redefining Safety Standards


The IIHS “overlap” test is made to simulate a collision where only the passenger side is affected during a head-on collision. Imagine that a vehicle is headed directly towards the corner of a building and only makes contact with the passenger side. Out of seven small SUVs tested, IIHS deemed the 2016 Hyundai Tucson as the safest, issuing the SUV the only “good” rating in the group. Previously, IIHS did not include passenger overlap results as criteria for its Top Safety Pick+ award. However, because the Tucson outshined competitors by such an alarming margin, the agency is making passenger side overlap performance mandatory criteria for Top Safety Pick award judgment starting in 2018.
