The refined aesthetics and sporty contours of the redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson create a striking, bold appearance that will turn heads. But, according to industry leaders in child and family safety technology, it will also keep your family safe.
Together with Edmunds.com, Parents Magazine has chosen the Hyundai Tucson as one of its 10 Best Family Cars. Parents Magazine is a leading authority on children and edmunds.com is one of the most widely trusted sources for car shoppers. These two respected outlets joined forces and awarded the Tucson for its safety and kid-friendly features, roominess and more, and the new Tucson will appear in the July 2016 issue of Parents Magazine and online at Parents.com.
This is the ninth consecutive year that Parents Magazine has teamed up with Edmunds.com to select and rate the top vehicles for families with kids. Their ratings are based on criteria including quality of ride; safety; comfort and capacity; fuel efficiency; kid-friendly features; price and value; reliability; interior and exterior workmanship; visibility, controls and instrumentation; and attributes, such as appearance, ergonomics and special design features.
Dana Points, editor-in-chief of Parents, said that the Tucson has special utility when it comes to busy parents with active kids.
“Hyundai’s Tucson has a spacious interior. Its clever two-stage reclining seats and plenty of legroom allow kids to kick back and relax,” Points said. “Parents whose hands are always full will appreciate the handy tailgate that swings up automatically when you approach with the key in your pocket.”
The Tucson chassis also uses over 50% Advanced High Strength steel and structural adhesives at high stress points to improve rigidity and enhance driver and passenger safety. The suspension has been redesigned for precision handling that maintains a comfortable ride. SACHS® dampers and lightweight, hollow stabilizer bars on front and rear suspension allows for maximum body control in all driving conditions.
The all-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson also comes equipped with advanced safety features, including Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, Backup Warning Sensors and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). The 2016 Tucson also earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS’s) 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation.
Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning for Hyundai Motor America, said that the readers of Parents were exactly the drivers Hyundai engineers had in mind when they developed the Tucson’s industry-leading safety and comfort features.
“We understand parents look for vehicles that provide the top safety for their families and we took that seriously with the redesigned Tucson,” O’Brien said. “This recognition from Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com shows we are committed to providing better vehicles for our owners – through better safety, quality and design features that set us apart.”
