IIHS Safest Family Cars: Hyundai Azera Safety Ratings Top the Charts – Lexington, KY

Glenn Hyundai is proud to carry the Hyundai Azera, which was rated one of the safest family cars of 2014. It earned this rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which is a non-profit organization that does exhaustive research into the safety and reliability of most new vehicles.  It also conducts research on road design and traffic regulations, which leads it to be instrumental in promoting policy decisions about the roads we drive on. In short, they’re kind of a big deal when you’re looking for an authority about the safety of a vehicle you may be thinking about purchasing. Here’s a rundown of the features that earned the Hyundai Azera safety ratings guaranteed to keep you and your family safe:

Hyundai Azera Safety Ratings

Side Airbags: Front and rear head curtain airbags and front and rear seat-mounted torso airbags

Rollover Sensor: Designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover (beginning with 2015 models)

Driver Knee Airbag: A separate airbag in the lower instrument panel designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes

Electronic Stability Control

Anti-Lock Brakes

All positive safety features aside, it also helps that the Hyundai Azera is a really good looking car that looks like a luxury car with an affordable entry price. This helps prevent sticker shock when you’re in the market for a new car.  With EPA ratings of 20 MPG city and 29 highway for a combined figure of 23 mpg, the Azera helps save money on gas, too.

I’ve always been a station wagon or minivan person when it comes to family cars. But, after going through the specs and seeing how roomy it is, I’ve begun to think differently about what truly defines a family sedan. With seating for five, there’s plenty of space to take the whole family on a road trip or two this Summer.

If you’ve been looking for a safe, reliable, and well-designed car like the 2015 Hyundai Azera for the family, Glenn Hyundai would be the place to start.  They have this award-winning car in stock today, and would love to answer any questions you have and take you for a test drive. Safety and great design? What’s not to love!
