These awards further prove how hard the Hyundai brand works to ensure outstanding passenger safety.

To qualify for a TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must earn good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations. These evaluations include, driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests. Vehicles must also have available a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian tests and good- or acceptable-rated headlights.

To be considered for a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, vehicles must have good or acceptable headlights standard on all models, regardless of trim level.
