What gave the Kona, Santa Fe, and Tuscon this great rating for safety?
These vehicles all performed well in different individual vehicle crash tests that helped them get the high overall score from the NHTSA.
According to Cars.com, “NHTSA conducts three different types of crash tests before giving a vehicle an overall score. It measures a vehicle’s frontal- and side-crash performance as well as its resistance to rolling over. The frontal-crash test is a simulated 35-mph head-on crash into another vehicle, while the side-crash test is really two tests: a simulation of a T-bone crash of another vehicle into the test vehicle, and a simulation of the test vehicle “sliding off the road” and hitting a utility pole just in front of the driver’s door. Rollover testing is based on a static calculation of how prone a vehicle is to roll over during an evasive maneuver.”
In addition to having good crash test results, each of these vehicles has added safety technologies that the NHTSA recommends. These safety technologies include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and a backup camera. These technologies are either standard or available on the Kona, Tucson, and Santa Fe.
