The 2018 Hyundai Tucson Model Puts Safety First

With their size as a primary selling point, it's also important to drivers that they feel safe in the SUV of their dreams. That's what makes one of Hyundai's newest SUVs so compatible for most drivers. The 2018 Hyundai Tucson does its job to mix space and safety to create the perfect combination for successful and safe driving.

With six unique trim options to choose from, drivers have the selection needed to find their ideal match. Certain safety features come standard across all models while others are available in specific trim options like the Tucson Limited. After receiving the 2018 NHTSA 5-star Overall Safety Rating, it's easy to conclude that the 2018 Hyundai Tucson was crafted from the inside out with the purpose to protect its occupants whether they're driving or along for the ride.

Interior Safety: There are several ways occupants will be protected when inside the 2018 Tucson. Child passengers will be protected by standard rear child safety locks and kept secure in their seats with LATCH lower anchor and upper tether anchors. Another standard feature across all trims is the surplus of airbags. Not only are there dual seat-mounted side-impact airbags in the front seats, but there are also airbags mounted on the roof in the front and rear of the vehicle with rollover sensors.

Exterior Safety: Anticipating and reacting to a driver's surroundings is important, which is why the Limited trim comes with optional lane departure warning, rear parking sensors and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. All models have the standard tools for maintaining vehicle stability and traction on slick roads including the anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, traction control and brake assist. Plus, drivers will feel more secure with their vehicle's anti-theft system with remote keyless entry and a panic alarm if ever needed.

Despite all the safety features that the 2018 Tucson model offers, it's not the only area where it excels. The vehicle's stylish components and technology features are equally impressive and ready to be explored by you.
