Driving.ca: Hyundai Tucson, Kia Stinger latest to earn IIHS Top Safety Pick+ ratings

Driving.ca website reports, “Several new vehicles have claimed Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ ratings from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety over the past few weeks, including a high ratio of Hyundai and Kia machines like the Tucson and Stinger.”

“The Tucson can be had with standard LED reflectors, which score an “acceptable” rating with the IIHS. Bump it up to the LED projectors on the Limited trim and you’ll brighten that rating to “good.””

“There are two front crash prevention systems, one standard and one optional. For vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, both earned “superior” ratings.”

“Similarly to the Tucson, the 2022 Kia Stinger shines brightly with a “+” rating thanks to refined headlights. Gone are the not-so-highly-rated halogen headlights from 2021 and for 2022; LED reflector headlights come with the GT-line and GT1 trims. The GT2 offering brings curve-adaptive LED projectors, which net an “acceptable” rating.”

“Its standard front crash-prevention system earns a “superior” rating in the vehicle-to-vehicle evaluations; and an “advanced” rating in the vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluation.”
