Industry News / Comments

This one is a big deal in a family-driven segment.

There's a lot to like about the new Hyundai Tucson. Its bold styling catches the eye, the interior is extremely comfortable, and the SUV is loaded with new standard technology. Since it went on sale, the new Tucson has become Hyundai's best-selling SUV in America, and now buyers can have peace of mind knowing that it's one of the safest SUVs in its class. Thanks to its structural rigidity, LED headlights and standard safety tech, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson has been awarded a coveted Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

"Hyundai's commitment to 'safety first' is our highest priority," said Brian Latouf, chief safety officer, Hyundai Motor North America. "We are extremely proud of the 2022 Tucson's recent Top Safety Pick+rating and continuing Hyundai's industry leadership in IIHS awards. Our commitment to safety is paramount."

To qualify for a Top Safety Pick+, vehicles need to earn good ratings in all six IIHS crash tests. These include the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side roof strength, and head restraint tests. In addition, the vehicle's front crash prevention system needs to earn advanced or superior ratings in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, as well as good or acceptable headlights that are standard across all trim levels.

As standard, the 2022 Tucson comes with Hyundai's SmartSense safety suite of advanced driver assists including a lane-keeping assist, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian and cyclist detection, driver attention warning, high beam assist, and rear occupant alert.

Pricing for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson starts at $24,950, which is great value considering all the standard safety tech you get.

The 2022 Tucson's latest achievement solidifies Hyundai's safety reputation. Impressively, 14 Hyundai and Genesis models from the 2021 or 2022 model year earned a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ safety rating.
