Six Kia Models Named Top Safety Pick By IIHS

Sunday, March 8th, 2020

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety [IIHS] conducts crash testing every year to make sure that every new vehicle can meet the challenges of everyday driving. Not just to see how a vehicle can withstand a crash, but to see how they can avoid getting into one.

The Kia lineup is designed with a commitment to safety from the ground up. From strong unibody structures to a complete set of driver assistance technologies.  The Kia family of vehicles are designed to keep you and everyone on board safe and secure mile after mile.

In this year’s IIHS testing, SIX Kia models were given top marks.  The 2020 Telluride, Sorento, Sportage, Soul, Stinger and Forte received Top Safety Pick rating for this model year, when equipped with front crash prevention and specific headlights.

The IIHS looks at each vehicle to see if they meet their stringent standards to qualify for these designations. Testing includes evaluating crash readiness, build integrity and available and standard safety systems

These awards combined shows that Kia makes safer and more secure vehicles for you. This commitment stems from engineering features such as the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian detection, and LED lighting systems with High Beam Assist.

Driver assist features are great to have and Kia of Mankato encourages our customers to try them out in real world situations in and around town. It also comes down to the basics, such as easy to use seat belts, air bags that protect the passenger area, and strong construction that is built into every Kia we sell to you.
