Hyundai’s 2024 Elantra and Tucson have each received TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the organization’s top honor.

The vehicles are being recognized for meeting the IIHS’ newest and most-stringent crash-worthiness evaluations and for their front-crash prevention systems, which are designed to protect pedestrians both during the day and at night, the company noted.

The company has made a commitment to meeting the non-profit organization’s more-advanced driver and pedestrian safety requirements.

“This is great news for our recently refreshed Elantra sedan and Tucson compact SUV, two of our highest-volume models,” said Brian Latouf, global chief safety officer, Hyundai Motor Company. “We made it a priority to improve our vehicles’ safety engineering to meet the more-stringent TSP+ testing requirements recently instituted by IIHS. We are extremely proud that Hyundai now holds five TSP+ (2023 Palisade, 2023 IONIQ 6, 2024 Tucson, Elantra and IONIQ 5) and one TSP (2023 Sonata/Sonata HEV) for the 2023 IIHS vehicle ratings.”

To qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK+ in 2023, a vehicle must earn “Good” ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, original moderate overlap front and updated side tests. “Acceptable” or “Good” headlights must be standard across all trims and a front-crash prevention system that earns “Advanced” or “Superior” ratings in both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations must be available.
