2013 Hyundai Santa Fe safety award by IIHS

Top Safety Pick award goes to the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe CUV!

Hyundai received yet another award earlier this week, this time with the kudos falling on their safety features.

It was the just-recently launched 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe that was on the receiving end of the Institute for Highway Safety’s -IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick, which just so happens to be the highest honor that the organization gives out.

The Top Safety Pick award is given to vehicles that excel in protecting drivers and passengers in moderate overlap frontal, side, rollover and rear impact evaluations. 2012 Top Safety Picks also went to other Hyundai cars, including the Azera, Elantra, Sonata, Genesis, Equus, Tucson and 2013 Santa Fe.

Mike O’Brien, vice president, Corporate and Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America expressed delight at seeing the Santa Fe included on such a prestigious list.

He went on to say that Hyundai remains committed in its efforts to provide consumers with the best in passive and active safety technologies. O’Brien also noted that he believed that that IIHS Top Safety Pick went a long way towards confirming the Santa Fe as a class leader in safety and versatility.

The goal of the IIHS Top Safety Picks is to provide consumers with a list of vehicles that deliver the highest level of crash protection. The 2013 Santa Fe CUV made it onto the list courtesy of good rating on all 4 evaluations: front, side, rollover, and rear.

There are some fantastic safety technologies built into the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, including the carmaker’s Active Driving and Safety Dynamics that is in place to help drivers avoid collisions, whilst also delivering enhanced control in emergency situations.

Included in that impressive optional package are the Active Cornering Control All-Wheel-Drive system, the Vehicle Stability Management System, Hyundai’s Hillstart Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control, and Driver Selectable Steering Mode which gives drivers three operating modes to select from – Comfort, Normal and Sport.
