2021 Hyundai Elantra and 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Win IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Awards | Harlingen, TX

2021 Hyundai Elantra & 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Earn IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Ratings - Bert Ogden Hyundai in Harlingen, Texas

Confidence comes standard when you buy the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra or the refreshed 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both of these vehicles recently won TOP SAFETY PICK honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.* IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK models are among the most crashworthy vehicles on the road today, boasting key safety features and design elements that help protect everyone on board.

The Elantra and Santa Fe join seven other current Hyundai models that have won TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards. With an impressive total of nine IIHS honors, Hyundai is now tied for third among all automakers around the world.

TOP SAFETY PICK Requirements

To earn a TOP SAFETY PICK award, the Elantra and Santa Fe had to meet a series of strict requirements. The IIHS performs testing for driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, and side impacts. It also tests whether a vehicle’s roof strength holds up in a crash and assesses how well the head restraints work. The Elantra and Santa Fe qualified for their awards by getting good ratings on all six of these tough crash tests.

TOP SAFETY PICK winners also need to offer an available front crash prevention system that gets advanced or superior ratings when it’s tested in vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-pedestrian situations. Finally, TOP SAFETY PICK vehicles must have good-rated or acceptable-rated headlights available on at least some models.

To meet these criteria, the Elantra and Santa Fe both provide superior-rated Forward Collision-Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection as a standard feature on every trim. Both models also offer good-rated LED projector headlights on high-end trims.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Safety Features

Completely redesigned for 2021, the Hyundai Elantra supplements its TOP SAFETY PICK crashworthiness with a wide range of standard and available safety features. These technologies provide you with better visibility, reduce fatigue in traffic, and work to prevent crashes before they occur.

Every 2021 Elantra trim comes equipped with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Lane Following Assist. Other standard safety measures include Drive Attention Warning, High Beam Assist, and Safe Exit Warning.

On higher trims, the Elantra adds Cyclist and Junction-Turning Detection to its Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist tech. Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and the advanced new Highway Drive Assist are also available, along with a pair of parking assistance features.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Safety Features

To go along with its TOP SAFETY PICK status, the Hyundai Santa Fe received a significant makeover for 2021. It now boasts a comprehensive package of standard and available safety technologies to assist you behind the wheel and help protect your passengers.

All 2021 Santa Fe trims get an advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system with Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Junction Turning Detection features. Rear Occupant Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go come standard as well.

Optional safety equipment for the Santa Fe includes Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Safe Exit Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Highway Driving Assist. The Blind-Spot View Monitor and Surround View Monitor provide drivers with a full view of what’s around the vehicle. Parking Distance Warning and Remote Smart Parking Assist remove the stress from entering and leaving tight spots.
