The 2022 Hyundai Tucson not only got bigger, offering more powertrains, including plug-in hybrids, and a more striking design, but also performed better in IIHS safety tests.
The Korean crossover of the new generation received the highest rating from the IIHS organization – Top Safety Pick +, while the previous generation of the model received a rating without “+”. This award applies to all crossover versions thanks to adequate headlights.
Tucson scored Good in each category in crash tests. It also received a “Superior” rating on all collision avoidance tests for both standard and optional systems. The top-of-the-line Tucson headlights were rated Good, while the standard headlamps were rated Acceptable. Access to the child seat anchorage was rated “acceptable”.
The Tucson is one of a relatively short list of small crossovers to receive the Top Safety Pick + rating. Other award winners include Ford Bronco Sport, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester and Volvo XC40.
