The Hyundai Elantra has qualified for the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Previously earning the 2018 Top Safety Pick award, the vehicle now qualifies for Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with optional front crash prevention and good-rated headlights.

To qualify for the 2018 Top Safety Pick+ award, vehicles must earn a good rating in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. They must also achieve an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap test, an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.
