The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is the latest vehicle to receive the highest safety rating from the IIHS – Top Safety Pick+.

To qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle must receive a good rating in all five IIHS crashworthiness tests — small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. The vehicle must also receive an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating.


The Ioniq’s optional front crash prevention system earns a superior rating. In the 12 mph and 25 mph IIHS track tests, the Ioniq Hybrid avoided a collision. The 2017 Ioniq Hybrid’s high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights earn an acceptable rating.

The IIHS also announced that the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT and Santa Fe Sport have also received the Top Safety Pick+ rating.
