Oxnard Hyundai Confirms, Six Hyundai Models Earn 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick Honors

Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Genesis, Equus, Tucson and Santa Fe Achieve Highest Safety Ratings


December 20, 2011 – Oxnard, Calif. – Oxnard Hyundai is excited to confirm, Six Hyundai models, the all-new Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Genesis, Equus, Tucson and Santa Fe, achieved the 2012 Top Safety Pick honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
IIHS recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rollover, and rear crashes based on “good” ratings in Institute tests. Winners must also have available Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a crash avoidance feature that significantly reduces crash risk.
“Safety has always been a top priority for Hyundai so it is nice to see that six of our models have made it on such an influential list,” said Charlie Shaw, General Manager.
The IIHS Top Safety Pick ratings help consumers pick vehicles that offer a higher level of protection than federal safety standards require. In 2010, the Institute toughened the criteria for Top Safety Pick by adding a requirement that all qualifiers must earn a “good” rating for performance in a roof strength test to assess protection in a rollover crash.
