[THE INVESTOR] Hyundai Motor Group said on Dec. 19 that 12 of its vehicles have earned the Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the United States.

The 12 models are the Elantra compact, Sonata midsize sedan, Kona subcompact sport utility vehicle, Santa Fe SUV, Genesis G70, G80 and G90 released by Hyundai Motor.


The K3 compact, K5 midsize sedan, Niro hybrid, Niro plug-in hybrid, and Sorento SUV by Hyundai‘s affiliate, Kia Motors Corp., also received IIHS top safety rating.

To get a top safety rating from IIHS, a vehicle has to earn high scores in the agency’s small overlap front crash, moderate overlap front crash, side crash, roof strength, head restraint crash tests for both the driver and passenger side, the statement said.

In the initial 2019 model-year rankings, IIHS has given the Top Safety Pick Plus rating to a total of 30 vehicles and the Top Safety Pick rating to 27 vehicles that include six Hyundai models and three Kia models, it said.
