  • Hyundai Now Offers 13 TOP #safety PICK/ TOP #safety PICK+ Models in the U.S., becoming the Most Prolific TSP/TSP+ Awarded Brand in the Industry when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 6, 2019
 – The 2020 #hyundai #palisade has been awarded a 2019 TOP #safety PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway #safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional LED headlights. #hyundai #suv models that have achieved these honors from the IIHS are the Kona, Tucson (built after March 2019), Santa Fe, Santa Fe XL, and NEXO (built after June 2019).

The #palisade is Hyundai’s 13th vehicle to receive a TOP #safety PICK or TOP #safety PICK+ rating. As a result, #hyundai is now the most-awarded brand in the #automotive industry by IIHS in 2019 with six models earning TOP #safety PICK ratings and seven earning TOP #safety PICK+ ratings.

According to the IIHS, to qualify for a 2019 TOP #safety PICK+ award, a vehicle has to earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head-restraint tests. It must also earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and be equipped with good-rated headlights.

The 2020 #palisade earned good ratings in the six IIHS crashworthiness tests. The standard front crash prevention system earned a superior rating, with an autobrake system that successfully avoided collisions in both the 12- and 25-mph IIHS track tests.

“Hyundai’s brand commitment to building safe vehicles is at the forefront of every product plan,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, #hyundai Motor America. “We are extremely proud that, with the Palisade’s TOP #safety PICK+ rating, the #hyundai brand continues to be an industry leader in IIHS accolades. Our commitment to #safety remains stronger than ever.”
