Hyundai Elantra Receives Highest IIHS Safety Rating

Stylish, comfortable, speedy, efficient, and affordable: all words we'd use to describe the 2013 Hyundai Elantra sedan. But now that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has had their say, we know we can add another word to that list for sure.


And that word is, of course, "safe." But not just any normal kind of safe; oh, no. This is as safe as it gets.


To achieve the IIHS' highest safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+, there are a number of things a vehicle must do. It must pass simulated crash tests for moderate overlap front crash, small overlap front crash, side impact, and a rollover test. If that weren't enough, the seat restraints must be evaluated for possible neck injuries in rear impacts. Of these five tests, the vehicle must score "good" - the highest score - in at least four of them.


Well folks, we here at Tameron Hyundai are proud to announce that the 2013 Elantra did indeed receive the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation. With its six airbags, including dual front and front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, as well as front and rear side curtain bags, passengers within are in the best of hands. And its cutting-edge braking system of four-wheel disc brakes and anti-lock braking with brake assist means that crashes can be better avoided with good driving - and good stopping.


So if you'd like to check one out for yourself in person, come down to our Birmingham, AL dealership today. Whether it's the Elantra or any other new Hyundai model that catches your eye, we'll do our best to help you out in any way we can.
