Hyundai Kona IIHS and NHTSA Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2020 Hyundai Kona a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK. What does that mean? It received the highest rating of Good for every facet of crashworthiness. That includes:

  • Small overlap front: driver-side
  • Small overlap front: passenger-side
  • Moderate overlap front
  • Side
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraints & seats

In order to receive the distinction of TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must also get a Good rating for its headlights and an Advanced or Superior rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian crash prevention.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), performs similar crash tests to help inform consumers and reduce the losses from motor vehicle crashes. In these tests, the 2020 Kona received the highest, 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. That includes a 5-Star Overall Rating for front and side crash protection.

Standard Safety Features

The Hyundai Kona safety ratings can lend themselves, in part, to its standard front crumple zones. They are specially designed to absorb and disperse collision force away from the passenger cabin. That helps keep you and your loved ones protected. It's coupled with bodyside reinforcements, so you'll have even more peace of mind.

You will have the support of Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. This standard feature will alert you when it detects an imminent collision. If you don't react in time, it can apply emergency braking that will help lessen the severity of the impact or possibly avoid it altogether.

The standard Driver Attention Warning will act as an attentive copilot. It will warn you when it detects drowsy or distracted driving, so you can safely pull over and take a break.

Hyundai Kona Available Safety Features

If you want more support out on the open road, the Kona can be equipped with Smart Cruise Control. It will help make everything from your next road trip to the daily commute even more enjoyable. Once you set the desired speed, it will keep you moving forward while also maintaining a safe distance between you and the car ahead.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning will give you more confidence when changing lanes and merging. It will alert you when a vehicle is lurking in one of those hard-to-see places. It works with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, so you can also safely back out of tight parking spots once the coast is clear.

When your adventure comes to an end, the standard Rear View Monitor will show you what is directly behind the vehicle. It comes with parking guidance, so you can maneuver into any parking spot. It can be coupled with Parking Distance Warning that will alert you when you get too close to a potential obstacle.
