Model Earns Accolade from Trusted Outlets for Safety, Reliability and Kid-Friendly Features
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 7, 2016 – Together with Edmunds.com, Parents Magazine named the Hyundai Tucson as a 10 Best Family Car. Parents Magazine is one of the most trusted publications for parents and Edmunds.com is one of the most trusted sources for car shoppers. The two esteemed outlets joined forces and awarded the Tucson for its safety and kid-friendly features, roominess and more.
“Hyundai’s Tucson has a spacious interior. Its clever two-stage reclining seats and plenty of legroom allow kids to kick back and relax,” says Dana Points, editor-in-chief, Parents. “Parents whose hands are always full will appreciate the handy tailgate that swings up automatically when you approach with the key in your pocket.”
For the ninth year in a row, Parents Magazine teamed up with Edmunds.com, the destination for car shopping, to select the top vehicles for families. The ratings were based on factors including quality of ride; safety; comfort and capacity; fuel efficiency; kid-friendly features; price and value; reliability; interior and exterior workmanship; visibility, controls and instrumentation; and attributes, such as appearance, ergonomics and special design features. The Tucson will appear in the July 2016 issue of Parents Magazine and online at Parents.com.
“We understand parents look for vehicles that provide the top safety for their families and we took that seriously with the redesigned Tucson,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “This recognition from Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com shows we are committed to providing better vehicles for our owners – through better safety, quality and design features that set us apart.”
The all-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson comes equipped with advanced safety features, including Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, Backup Warning Sensors and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). The 2016 Tucson also earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS’s) 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation.
