When it comes to judging a car’s safety, there are a few ways to go about it. One of the best ways to get a feel for how well a vehicle’s safety system protects passengers is by checking ratings from reputable sources like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS rates each vehicle by looking at how well it protects in a collision and by how well its safety features do to prevent an accident.
The organization uses a list of crash tests to examine how each vehicle reacts to collision. It recently added a new crash test, making it harder for vehicles to earn their highest safety award, the IIHS Top Safety Pick+. This new test examines how well the front passenger side is protected.
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra compact car successfully passed the test and secured the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ status. Previous model years only attained the next level title of IIHS Top Safety Pick.
This promotion is also thanks to the smart and available safety features on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra. The small car can be equipped with amenities like HID projector headlights and driver-assist features like an automatic emergency braking system.
