IIHS: 2015 Hyundai Sonata Earns Top Safety Pick+ Honor
Sonata Joins Genesis Sedan on TSP+ List
Backed by a thorough redesign that included both a stiffer, more rigid platform and plenty of available high-tech safety systems, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata recently earned its Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The recognition, of course, requires vehicles to offer some form of frontal collision-avoidance technology and also receive passing grades in a variety of IIHS impact evaluations, including for small and moderate front-overlap impacts, side-impact occupant protection, roof strength, and seat performance.
Said Adrian Lund, president of the IIHS: “The Top Safety Pick+ designation recognizes state-of-the-art safety. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata is not only engineered to protect people when crashes happen, but with its optional forward collision warning system rated basic in our tests, this car can help drivers avoid some of the most common kinds of collisions altogether.”
