Hyundai Santa Fe Lands Safest Midsize SUV Title - January 11, 2018

A new list of vehicles recognized for offering the highest levels of crash protection was released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a nonprofit financed by the insurance industry. Sixty-two 2018 model year cars earned top ratings in the most recent annual evaluations aimed to help consumers more easily identify the safest vehicles.

Fifteen vehicles qualified for the Top Safety Pick + award, the institute’s highest designation that recognizes models that offer an advanced level of safety and a further 47 earned the basic award. Among the fifteen that received a Top Safety Pick + award were both the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe and 2018 Santa Fe Sport.

To snag this award, the Santa Fe had to have an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention, as well as good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. In addition, to qualify for Top Safety Pick +, the Santa Fe had to be rated good for headlights and good or acceptable in the new passenger-side small overlap crash test. Headlights also factor into the second-tier award: a good or acceptable rating is required.
