Is Hyundai a Safe Car?

Iowa families want to know, “Is Hyundai a safe car?” Thanks (in part) to available features like all-wheel drive, extensive safety tests from independent organizations like the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, and SmartSense driver-assistance technologies, you can depend on the Hyundai brand to keep safety in mind as a top-priority, especially with family cars and the best cars for teens.

Hyundai’s advanced safety features, including pedestrian detection, automatic headlights, roof strength, additional security features, award-winning performance, and active safety technologies designed to protect the driver, passengers, and others on the road.

The Power, Performance, and Features You Need

When you drive a Hyundai car or SUV on Iowa highways, you’re driving a vehicle that accounts for safety as a top priority, with the performance and power you need to handle I-80 or the back roads of the Loess Hills.

All of these added features help Hyundai vehicles (cars and SUVs) to earn a NHSTA five star safety rating and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety top safety pick status among so many other vehicles on the road.
