The 2017 Hyundai Tucson is one of the most popular small crossover SUVs on the market. But it is also one of the safest vehicles available.


On the whole, it combines the maneuverability of a car with the versatility and cargo space of an SUV. But what makes the Hyundai Tucson stand out from other crossovers is its array of safety features.

What Makes the Hyundai Tucson a Safe Car?

Covering the Basics

Each Tucson comes value-packed with certain standard safety systems. While anti-lock brakes ensure rotation, stability control adjusts engine power to maintain control. At the same time, voice-controlled navigation helps you keep your hands on the wheel.


Meanwhile, all-wheel drive maintains a comfortable ride no matter how far you travel. The Tucson also protects passengers from unexpected hazards with standard front and side-impact airbags.


Above and Beyond

The Tucson is equipped with more advanced features, too, such as a rearview camera and rear parking sensors help with backing up and parking. Other collision-avoidance technology includes automatic emergency braking with Pedestrian Detection. This system ensures fast and effective stopping from 5 to 50 miles per hour. This is particularly the case when the system detects a pedestrian.


You can add also Hillstart Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control. While the former minimizes rolling, the latter maximizes control when driving downhill.


Available Convenience Features

The 2017 Tucson includes other innovative technology to ensure safety while driving. For example, Blind Spot Detection monitors hazards that might otherwise remain unseen. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert lets drivers know of risks coming from the sides, as well.


The Tucson’s Lane Departure warning even alerts drivers when they drift from their lane. Last, lane change assist ensures safety when changing lanes by gauging approaching vehicles’ speeds. With this technology, you won’t pull out in front of a car that’s going faster than it seems to be.
