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.
