2019 Hyundai Tucson Upgrades
To A Top Safety Pick+

In one of the industry's most stringent crash tests, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson has been upgraded from a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK to a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award applies to Tucsons equipped with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and LED headlights built after March 2018.



Hyundai has 11 vehicles that have received the TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ Awards when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. The other 2019 Hyundai models that have achieved these honors from the IIHS are Accent, Elantra (built after September 2018), Elantra GT, Ioniq Hybrid, Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid (built after July 2018), Kona, Santa Fe, Santa Fe XL, Sonata and Veloster (built after August 2018).

According to IIHS, models that earn TOP SAFETY PICK+ are the best vehicle choices for safety within their size categories. The 2019 criteria required:

  • Good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests
  • Advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention
  • Good headlight rating
