NHTSA Scores 2016 Hyundai Tucson Safety With Five-Star Rating

2016 Hyundai Tucson Safety

Just after the 2016 Hyundai Tucson won the Ruedas ESPN Best Compact Crossover award at the 45th Annual Miami Auto Show – the model has been honored yet again; this time, for it’s superior safety.

In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) officially bestowed a five-star safety rating on the new Hyundai Tucson SUV, the best rating that the NHTSA offers.

The 2016 Tucson received five stars in the front and side crash tests, as well as four stars in the rollover crash test, combining for an overall grade of five stars. Of course, this is no surprise to us – as we’re well aware of just how safe modern Hyundai models are.

Plus, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson safety features had already been graded by the IIHS, earning it the title of a Top Safety Pick+ model.

Don’t Forget to Wash Your Car in Winter, The Messiest Time of the Year

Wash Your Car in Winter

During the winter months, your car will likely get dirtier than ever, thanks to the snow, sleet, and salty mush that will splash up on it. Though it may seem futile, don’t ignore your car washing routine, which is more important than ever.

By leaving your car dirty throughout the winter, you’ll be promoting rust and damage to the car’s paint and general exterior. Instead, wash your car regularly, or perhaps even more often than you usually would.

If you plan to wash your car in person, we recommend that you do so far before sundown, so that not only will you be warmer, but also, your car will have more sunshine to promote drying.

And this time of year, don’t forget to clean the bottom of your vehicle and any splash guards, which are likely to take a beating. Don’t forget to pay close attention to your wheels, too, when you wash your car in winter.

Whatever you do this year, don’t neglect your vehicle, and if it’s not too late, consider preparing it ahead of time. For more winter weather tips, or to check out our winter-ready vehicles, visit us anytime at SouthTowne Hyundai.
