Hyundai: A Safe Decision
Hyundai: A Safe Decision
With precious cargo comes the need to protect it. That’s why Hyundai is so passionate about making cars that rank high in safety. A perfect example of this is the fact that Hyundai models for 2018 and 2019 have received no less than ten Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+)* and Top Safety Picks (TSP)** from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (or IIHS).
Just as noteworthy is how these awards are the most combined of this type for any automaker in the industry.
Among Hyundai’s award-winning models are the 2018 Hyundai Kona (with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights; applies only to vehicles built after May 2018), the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe (with specific headlights), and the 2019 Hyundai Accent (with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights).
And speaking of the 2019 Hyundai Accent…
