2016 Hyundai Elantra Earns Five-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The 2016 Hyundai Elantra sedan earned the top five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2016 Elantra received four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The refreshed 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback also earned the top five-star safety rating from NHTSA, receiving the same individual crash-test scores as the Elantra sedan.

Both are on sale now at Hyundai dealerships.

Standard safety equipment on the 2016 Elantra GT includes electronic stability control, traction control, antilock brakes and seven airbags, including a driver's knee airbag.

Standard safety equipment on the carryover 2016 Elantra includes electronic stability control, antilock brakes, traction control and six airbags.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not rated the 2016 Elantra. But the 2015 Elantra sedan was named a 2015 Top Safety Pick by IIHS.

Key competitors to the Hyundai Elantra include the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2016 Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla have not been rated by NHTSA.
