2011 Hyundai Elantra gets the Top Safety Pick award from IIHS

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra has earned the recognition as Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This award was given after the vehicle received a “Good” rating in all crash test categories that comprise front, side, rollover and rear crash protection.

Another plus factor for the Elantra is that it has Electronic Stability Control (ESC). David Zuby, the chief research officer of IIHS, said that over the years, Elantra safety has “improved tremendously.” He added that automakers have improved crashworthiness through various means.

The most significant adjustments include better designs of front crush zones to handle crash energy, stronger roofs so that passengers are better protected in rollovers, and harder compartments so that intrusion would be limited.
