Though one agency hasn't updated its ratings yet for 2013, the Hyundai Tucson's fared well in crash tests to date.

The insurance industry-funded Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Tucson a Top Safety Pick in the 2012 model year, with its top "good" score in all tests. However, it hasn't put the finishing touches on its latest scoring. We'll update this page when that information becomes available.

Meanwhile, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has renewed the Tucson's overall score of four stars, which rolls up its four-star score on frontal impact protection and rollover resistance, and a top five-star score in both the side impact and side pole tests.

The Tucson covers all the usual bases for safety-conscious shoppers. Dual front side and curtain airbags are standard, as are anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control. Hill descent control is also standard, along with brake assist, tire pressure monitors, and active headrests. Bluetooth is standard on most versions, and a rearview camera is available.

All-around visibility int he Tucson is quite good, save for some spots at the rear quarters, where the dramatic roofline meets its tailgate.

Conclusion

Safety scores have been good, and the Tucson offers some safety options its competition hasn't.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
