FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 30, 2022 – Hyundai’s all-new 2022 IONIQ 5 (built after December 2021) has received an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS (TSP+) designation. The significant achievement now gives Hyundai a total of nine 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS (TSP+) and TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP)-rated vehicles in its lineup, among the most in the industry. Hyundai and Genesis have a combined 14 TSP/TSP+ vehicles.

“As the industry navigates to an all-electric future, we are extremely proud to have been awarded an IIHS TSP+ for our all-new IONIQ 5, the first of three Hyundai EV’s to be built on our Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP),” said Brian Latouf chief safety officer, Hyundai Motor North America. “Safety is foundational at Hyundai and earning the IIHS TSP+ award demonstrates our “Safety First” commitment to our customers.”

IONIQ 5 is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2. Other driving assistance systems available include Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, Driver Attention Warning, High Beam Assist, and more.
