What factors determine a vehicle’s TSP rating from the IIHS?

For evaluating a car’s safety, the IIHS offers two categories of awards. TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) is the first, while TOP SAFETY PICK+(TSP+) is the second. To be qualified for the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, vehicles must score well in all six IIHS crash-worthiness tests. The following are some of them:

  1. Driver-side small overlap front
  2. Passenger-side small overlap front
  3. Moderate overlap front
  4. Side roof strength
  5. Head restraint tests

Vehicles must also have good or acceptable lighting across all trim levels, as well as a front crash prevention system that obtains advanced or superior ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Key Safety Features

The Hyundai Santa Fe is available in four trim levels: SE, SEL, Limited, and Calligraphy. While the base SE trim level has several essential safety features, higher trim levels, such as the Calligraphy, add to the package. For example, the new 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SE has the following standard safety features:

2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Interior Cabin Dashboard
  1. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with TCS and Brake Assist (BA)
  2. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
  3. ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with 4-wheel disc brakes
  4. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
