Safety Awards for Hyundai Sedans | Harlingen, TX
Hyundai prioritizes safety in the design and engineering of its vehicles, including the Hyundai SmartSense range of advanced safety technologies. The Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Elantra and Hyundai Sonata have earned high praise from the independent safety verification organization, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The automaker’s economy car, the Hyundai Accent, offers a wide range of safety features, despite its low starting price. That helped the 2019 Accent sedan earn a Top Safety Pick distinction from the IIHS.* The Accent is available with advanced safety technologies such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which is not offered on competitors like the Nissan Versa, Chevy Sonic or Ford Fiesta. Like all Hyundai models, the Accent is also backed by America’s best warranty.
The Hyundai Elantra performed even better in IIHS testing, earning the organization’s highest honor: Top Safety Pick+.** You can outfit the Elantra with a wide range of available safety features as part of the Hyundai SmartSense suite. These include High Beam Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Safe Exit Assist, Smart Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Elantra, too, benefits from America’s best warranty: five years or 60,000 miles limited warranty and 10 years or 100,000 miles for the powertrain warranty.
Like the Elantra, the Hyundai Sonata earned the IIHS’s top distinction of Top Safety Pick+; it was also recently named a Kelley Blue Book 10 Best Sedan Under $30,000 — and safety had a lot to do with that.1 Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert comes standard on the Sonata. Other available safety technologies include Lane Keeping Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Plus, the Hyundai Sonata is backed by the same industry-leading warranties as the other Hyundai sedans on this list.
