2016 Hyundai Tucson: one of the safest compact SUVs


The all-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson is an attractive, sporty, and comfortable crossover SUV.  Upgrades for this new model year include an increase in cargo capacity, better handling and higher fuel economy.  But the most important enhancements for the Tucson are its advanced safety features, which is a key factor for parents when deciding on a vehicle to transport and protect their families.

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson has earned top five-star frontal and side impact rating results from the NHTSA (National Highway Safety Traffic Administration), which is rare for a compact SUV.  Safety was obviously a major consideration in the design of this year’s new model, which was also demonstrated by earning Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) for Limited Ultimate models equipped with the automatic emergency braking system.

The Hyundai Tucson offers standard safety equipment, including rearview cameras, front- and side-impact airbags for both driver and passenger, and side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers.  Drivers are notified in case of an under-inflated tire, which can be risky during travel.  Available advanced safety features on certain models include Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, Backup Warning Sensors, and Automatic Emergency Braking.

Since 2007, Parents Magazine and, two of the most trusted and respected sources of information in their respective fields, have come together to select the top vehicles for families.  Ratings consider kid-friendly features, ride quality, comfort and capacity, value, reliability, and most importantly for families, safety.  Together, they named the Hyundai Tucson one of the “10 Best Family Cars”.
