COSTA MESA, Calif., May 16, 2012 – The all-new Hyundai Azera achieved the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest honor for 2012 as a Top Safety Pick this week. Top Safety Pick recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rollover and rear crashes, based on “good” ratings in Institute tests. Elantra, Sonata, Genesis, Equus, Tucson and Santa Fe are also 2012 Top Safety Picks.
The IIHS Top Safety Pick ratings help consumers pick vehicles that offer the highest level of crash protection. Azera meets the Top Safety Pick rating criteria by earning good ratings in a front and side crash test, rear impact test assessing whiplash protection and a roof strength test to measure occupant protection in rollover crashes.
