Arlington, Virginia – The U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has reported new crash test ratings for the Acura ZDX, Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Sienna.

The new 2010 Acura ZDX midsize SUV has earned a “good” rating for frontal crash protection.

The 2010 Hyundai Elantra has improved from “marginal” to “good” for side impact protection. Hyundai made design changes to the side airbags, body side, and rear door structure to improve occupant protection in side impacts. The new rating applies to 2010 Elantra models built after November 2009.

The redesigned 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan has earned “good” ratings for both front and side impact crash protections. The previous-generation Sienna earned the same “good” ratings in the tests.
