U.S. IIHS: "The Safest Vehicles of 2020"
What is the No. 1 safest brand
that offers 9 ‘Top Safety Pick’-awarded models?
Mando’s AEB inside Hyundai, Kia and Genesis!

When we say a “safe car,”
we usually think about protecting vehicle occupants in car crashes.
However, protecting pedestrians (people outside the car) is just as important as protecting those inside.

As a nonprofit organization founded in 1959, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
annually conducts a comprehensive evaluation, assessing crash protection and crash prevention performance of the cars recently launched in the United States (including those with facelift or full model year changes), and announces its selection of the ‘safest cars’ of the year.

It is known as a test agency that carries out the strictest vehicle safety inspections throughout the world.

This year, for the first time,
IIHS has granted the title 2020 ‘Top Safety Pick+’ or ‘Top Safety Pick’ only to the vehicles
that have incorporated a Pedestrian Detection Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) System.

According to a survey conducted by the IIHS,
more than 6,300 pedestrians died from car crashes in 2018.
This figure, which is a record high in 28 years,
shows that improvement of social awareness for pedestrian safety is necessary.

That is why the IIHS says to have included pedestrian-avoidance technology as one of the factors needed for
receiving the highest safety rating ‘Top Safety Pick+.’
(This is also the reason why Mando’s AEB technology is necessary to protect pedestrian safety! :)

This year, 64 vehicles were selected as safe cars, with 23 of them receiving the ‘Top Safety Pick+’ award by demonstrating the best safety performance and the rest, 41 of them, receiving the ‘Top Safety Pick’ award by showing a fair performance.

Since many car buyers determine the safety of new cars by using the IIHS ratings,
most automakers aim to receive good scores in this evaluation.

If so, which vehicles have been evaluated as the safest cars in 2020? 

 Hyundai Motor Group, which includes Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis brands,
was chosen as the safest brand by offering 14 ‘Top Safety Pick+’ / ‘Top Safety Pick’ award-winning vehicles.

< Top Safety Pick’ award : 14 vehicles>
Avante (local name Elantra), i30 (local name Elantra GT), Veloster, Sonata,
Kona, Tucson, Palisade, Santa Fe, K3 (local name Forte), Soul, Stinger, Sportage, Sorento, Telluride

< Top Safety Pick +award : 3 vehicles>
Genesis G70, G80, Nexo


What a great news for Mando, too!

This is because Mando’s AEB product and technology were used in
award-winning Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis vehicles.

Mando’s AEB,
which is an active safety system that not only gives a warning to the drivers
but also performs emergency braking after judging forward collision risks through its radar and camera,
has been under mass production since its application to the Genesis line-up.

The Genesis model has already received the highest ‘SUPERIOR’ rating
from the Autonomous Emergency Braking System Assessment,
of which the IIHS conducted in 2014.

Since then,
the application of Mando’s AEB was extended to K9, Santa Fe and Tucson models,
and this has led Mando’s technical skills to be well received both in the United States and in Korea.
