SAFETY | 9 out of 10
'Good,' frontal offset, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick
Not yet rated
The 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe includes a strong list of safety features, and with some top safety scores as well, most families should have peace of mind in choosing it as a primary family vehicle.
Once again for 2012 the Santa Fe is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, and the organization has given the Santa Fe top 'good' ratings in all tests, including the new roof strength test. Results haven't been released from the federal government, but the Santa Fe had done very well under the previous ratings system.Stability control and curtain airbags are standard on the Santa Fe; so is Bluetooth, which we consider a safety device. And Hyundai has added downhill braking control to the stability control system this year.
With top-notch safety features, plus all the features that are expected in a mid-size crossover, the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe covers all the safety bases.
