Hyundai Elantra Safety Ratings

One of the best ways to gauge a vehicle's safety features is by looking at its safety ratings. Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2018 Hyundai Elantra performed well enough to earn the coveted 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+

This award is only given to vehicles that excel in their six different crash tests and offer superior front crash prevention technology, plus safe headlight features, as the 2018 Elantra does. 

You'll learn about all these features in the next section. 

2018 Hyundai Elantra Safety Technology

The Hyundai Elantra makes several driver-assist technologies available to help you get from Point A to Point B more safely. This includes features like available Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, which helped the 2018 Elantra earn such high marks from the IIHS. 

This system scans up ahead for other cars or pedestrians crossing the road. If detected, it will issue an alert and even autonomously apply the brakes if necessary to help avoid or lessen an impending impact.

The IIHS also liked the High Beam Assist feature, which toggles your high beams on and off to match the flow of oncoming traffic. If another car approaches from the opposite direction, your high beams will automatically toggle off and turn back on again when the other car has passed. This system allows you to focus more on safe driving and less on your headlights.

Elantra Safety Features

While the Hyundai Elantra does its best to help you avoid an accident, sometimes the unexpected happens. If it does, rest assured that this sedan has many features in place that aim to lessen the force of impact on the passengers inside the vehicle. 

The exterior of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra was designed with collision protection in mind. The front and rear crumple zones are equipped to lessen the force of impact by helping to disperse energy around the car.  

The Hyundai Elantra is also outfitted with an advanced airbag system. The front airbags will actively adjust their inflation pressure to compensate for the severity of the impact and weight of the passengers. 

The Elantra also includes seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags that span the entirety of the vehicle to protect passengers' heads in the event of a rollover situation. 

Finally, in the aftermath of a collision, the available Hyundai Blue Link® Connected Care system will automatically connect you with a trained professional to walk you through how to proceed. They will also use Automatic Collision Notification alerts to immediately locate your car via GPS and send emergency personnel.
