The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released its list of top safety pick and Top Safety Pick Plus winners for the 2021 model year, and Hyundai leads the industry with 11.
Hyundai’s Chief Safety Officer Brian Latouf said that by performing well in the IIHS testing shows how Hyundai is keeping customers and their families safe.
The IIHS awards have a component that measures headlights which is where many vehicles fail. The Hyundai Palisade now has standard LED headlights on 2021 models. In the case where a model change increases the score from Top Safety Pick to Top Safety Pick Plus, then IIHS counts that as two separate awards.
New Hyundai vehicles, plus factory authorized service and parts can be found at Hyundai of Newport at 1133 West Main Road in Middletown Rhode Island.
