Imagine (parked in a row) the 2017 Hyundai Tuscon, Santa Fe Sport, and Sonata. What do they have in common? It may not be as obvious as you think, unless you’ve been brushing up on your Hyundai news lately.
They have all been named a 2017 IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick! According to www.iihs.org, the Top Safety Pick is “based on good ratings in the moderate overlap from, small overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests plus no less than an advanced rating for front crash prevention.” Basically, it’s a GREAT car to consider when safety is a top priority when looking to purchase a vehicle.
At Taylor Hyundai, amongst all other Hyundai dealerships, we are in the middle of the Hyundai Spring Cleaning Sales Event (sale ends March 31, 2017). At Taylor Hyundai, we can offer you a lower monthly payment, little-to-no APR for a limited time, and the chance for cash back. For those of you that are flip-flopping between a sedan and a cross-over, well, you don’t have to sacrifice safety when choosing.
First, the 2017 Sonata is loaded with advantages: Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, class-leading space (more like “large-car” space), hands-free smart trunk, panoramic sunroof, and that’s just a few! There are a handful of competitors, but the top three are the 2017 Honda Accord, 2017 Toyota Camry, and the 2016 Nissan Altima. The Honda Accord lacks the hands-free smart trunk feature, the Toyota Camry forgot about the Android Auto™, and the Nissan Altima doesn’t give you the full sky view above. But lucky for Hyundai Sonata fans, the 2017 model has it all.
Next, the 2017 Tuscon comes with special features as well: available Lane Change Assist, available Automatic Emergency Break, and heated rear seats. The 2017 Subaru Forester doesn’t have heated rear seats; the 2016 Nissan Rogue left out Lane Change Assist options, and the 2016 Honda CR-V can’t assit you when your hands are full, aka, Hands-free Smart Liftgate*. If you’re leaning toward the Tuscon, you can have all of these great features.
Lastly, the 2017 Santa Fe Sport—another fantastic cross-over in the Hyundai family. One of its many great features is the available Lane Departure Warning, but heads up-the 216 Nissan Murano doesn’t have this feature. One feature that even the 2016 Ford Edge can’t tackle is available Dynamic Bending Light (making sure you see better around the corner in the direction you’re turning). The Santa Fe Sport also comes with the multi-view camera system, which the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox does not.
As you read the above feature descriptions, we hope you see why these vehicles are named a Top Safety Pick. The comparisons are tried and true, and to see more features compared, visit Hyundaiusa.com and stop by Taylor Hyundai to pick out which vehicle you should start your “spring cleaning” with!
