The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Earns an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Rating

In late August, Hyundai was proud to announce that the 2018 Hyundai Sonata sedan (when equipped with optional front crash prevention and dynamic bending headlights) was named a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The award, the institute's highest accolade granted for safety, is intended help consumers choose the vehicles that deliver the highest levels of crash protection. To receive a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating, vehicles must earn "Good" ratings in each of the five IIHS crashworthiness tests, while also having an available front crash prevention system that receives a rating of "Advanced" or "Superior." Also, winning vehicles must score a rating of at least "Acceptable" in the headlights test.

The 2018 Sonata sedan offers seven airbags and a suite of advanced safety systems -- like Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert -- as standard features, earning the distinction of being the sole midsize car that offers all of these safety technologies as standard issue.

In a press release, Mike O’Brien, Vice President, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America, commented, "Above all other things, safety of the occupants is the single most important factor when designing and engineering Hyundai vehicles. The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award is a testament to our emphasis on safety at every price point and we pride ourselves on providing our customers with ‘better’ because it is what drives us."
