Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Hyundai Tucson has a score of 79, implying a 0.044% chance of driver death (3.9% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.038%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.4%.

We estimate that the 2022 Hyundai Tucson has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0438% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.9973%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0438% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.9973% chance of being injured.

2022 Hyundai Tucson offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED). Optional safety features on the 2022 Hyundai Tucson which we recommend include Lane Departure Warning System and Blind-Spot View Monitoring.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
