The 2018 Kona and Tucson are the latest to be honored with Hyundai awards

2018 Hyundai Kona

The new Hyundai Kona crossover has already won favor with critics and customers alike. Most importantly, it has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s most coveted safety distinction: The 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick+, when equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and High Beam Assist.

The 2018 Kona was also named one of the 10 Coolest Cars under $20,000 by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. But that’s not all for the Hyundai Kona: The Kona also nabbed a top honor from Red Dot. Red Dot awarded the Kona with the Red Dot Award for Product Design this year.

2018 Hyundai Tucson

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson also earned several high honors. For starters, the Tucson earned praise from both safety governing bodies: It earned a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional Automatic Emergency Braking and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

J.D. Power has also been quite impressed with the 2018 Tucson. For starters, the Hyundai Tucson ranked as J.D. Power’s “Most Dependable Small SUV” in 2018; this study reviews vehicles throughout their first three years on the road and determines how many or how few problems they have. Because the Tucson had the fewest amount of problems in the small SUV segment, it won the top honor. Consumers also rated the Tucson as highest in infotainment.

The other J.D. Power honor that the Tucson earned was the “Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality.” Rather than study vehicle performance over three years, this study looks at vehicle performance in the first 90 days of ownership. This means that, once again, the Hyundai Tucson had the fewest issues in its segment, according to J.D. Power.
