And you've gotta know Hyundai is thrilled with that line of nothing but green Gs its full-size SUV scored. IIHS said crash results indicated, "... a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity." Which, we would all agree, is a good thing.

This shouldn't be a big surprise, though, since the NHTSA found pretty much the same thing when they tested the Veracruz, awarding the SUV five-stars after its frontal crash test for both passenger and driver.

In fact, the Veracruz has done pretty well in most safety checks, with a low rollover danger and another full set of NHTSA stars in the side impact event. Its only weak spot so far seems to have been found in the IIHS rear-crash test, where it scored acceptable, one below good. IIHS hasn't put this Hyundai through a side impact test yet, but as we already said, NHTSA gave two thumbs up.
