The Tucson, a mainstay of Hyundai's lineup since 2005, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Tucson packs some oomph. Hyundai offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2023 Hyundai Tucson is above average compared to all vehicles.

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 2023 Hyundai Tucson has a score of 84, implying a 0.036% chance of driver death (3.2% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Hyundai Tucson has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.036% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.1164%, meaning the average driver has a 0.036% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.1164% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Hyundai Tucson is 23% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2023 Hyundai Tucson is 11% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. All trims and versions of the 2023 Hyundai Tucson include the following active safety systems: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED), Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind-Spot View Monitoring.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Hyundai Tucson. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
