2018 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+

For 2018, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Kia Sorento its highest honor: Top Safety Pick+. The Sorento, when equipped with optional front crash prevention and LED headlights, earned this award for its perfect scores in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests. That’s in addition to its rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test and the ratings for its front crash prevention and headlights.
