Top Safety Awards For Hyundai And Subaru
(Thursday 11 October 2012)
The Hyundai Santa Fe and Subaru XV have both been given Top Safety Picks ratings by the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Both were described as Good (the IIHS's highest accolade) in front and side impact, roof strength and head restraint tests. The Subaru also has a five-star rating from Euro NCAP, which does not test for roof strength. The Hyundai has not yet gone through European testing.
The IIHS also gave its Top Safety Pick award to the Dodge Dart and Lexus ES, neither of which is sold in Europe.
