    2011 Hyundai Sonata earns Top Safety Pick award

    The redesigned 2011 Hyundai Sonata earns the Institute's Top Safety Pick award. To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of good in the Institute's front, side, rear, and rollover tests and be equipped with electronic stability control. Criteria to win are tough because the award is intended to drive continued safety improvements such as top crash test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control, which is standard on the Sonata. This is the first time the Sonata has earned the Institute's safety award. The previous generation Sonata was rated good for front and rear impact protection, acceptable in the side impact test, and marginal for rollover protection.

    "With the addition of the new rollover evaluation, Institute test results now cover all 4 of the most common kinds of crashes," says Institute president Adrian Lund. "Vehicles that win Top Safety Pick are designs that go far beyond minimum federal safety standards."
