The 2018 Hyundai Kona Earns A Top Safety Pick Rating

In one of the industry’s most stringent crash tests, the 2018 Hyundai Kona was named a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Kona scored a good rating for occupant protection in the passenger-side small overlap front crash test and when equipped with its newly available good-rated LED headlights, qualified for the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. The Kona also earned good ratings in the Institute’s five other crashworthiness evaluations and a superior rating for its optional front crash prevention system, which avoided collisions in 12- and 25-mph IIHS track tests.

“Hyundai is honored to receive the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from IIHS,” said Dr. MinSup Lee, vice president, Hyundai America Technical Center. “Having our engineering recognized by one of the leading indicators of vehicle safety inspires us to continue making advancements through passive and active safety integration.”

“Safety is one of the most important markers for every vehicle Hyundai develops and we are proud of our entire engineering team, who helped Kona achieve the highest possible rating from the IIHS,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Hyundai continues to prioritize making the most advanced safety features available. The Kona is a great example of the stylish, fun-to-drive, affordable and safe vehicles you can find in the Hyundai lineup.”
