How Does the New Hyundai Tucson Compare to the Latest Nissan Rogue Sport on Safety? The Authorities Weigh In

As SUVs become all the rage, our greater Dallas-area all-terrain enthusiasts are searching more and more for distinctions, especially when it comes to compact models. Luckily, you can find one just as capable as safe to pull ahead of the rest in the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson. Against contenders like the new Nissan Rogue Sport, for example, our Hyundai sport-utility's excellence is plain to see.

For one, the new Hyundai Tucson earns a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, taking home topmost "Good" ratings for crashworthiness, a "Superior" rating for front crash prevention when equipped with optional Automatic Emergency Braking, and an "Acceptable" headlight rating. 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport, on the other hand, is not yet rated for the ability to withstand a crash, and its front crash prevention rating is only "Basic." Even its 2017 predecessor was only partially rated -- "Good" for driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, and side crashes, but nonetheless "Basic" for front crash prevention, and this, without taking top honors. Plus, the new Tucson garnered five stars overall from the NHTSA in crash testing, while either 2017 Rogue Sport nor its 2018 sibling were rated.
