A Hyundai Model Small SUV Gets HIgest Ratings

     Unfortunately it is not one of those vehicles produced in the Montgomery Alabama plant. The Tuscon is assembled in plants around the globe.

     From The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety report:


"The Institute conducted 40 mph passenger-side small overlap tests on seven small SUVs with good driver-side small overlap ratings. Only one of the vehicles, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson, performed at a level corresponding to a good rating, and the others ran the gamut from poor to acceptable."
