Kia SUV and Minivan IIHS Safety Awards | Mission, TX
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reviews new cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs in a number of safety tests and awards them scores based on their performances. The SUVs and minivan models from Kia have all gone through this testing for 2019 — and all earned tremendous ratings thanks to their high-strength steel body structures, advanced air bag systems, and driver-assist safety technologies. If you are an educator, medical professional, or parent in the market for a new SUV or minivan that prioritizes safety for your students, patients, or children, consider the Kia Soul, Kia Sportage, Kia Sedona, or Kia Sorento.
Though small, the 2019 Kia Soul is incredibly safe. The IIHS awarded the new Soul with its Top Safety Pick designation, when the Soul is equipped with the proper headlights and optional front crash prevention. Every Soul comes standard with a Rear View Monitor; you can opt for a range of features, such as Smart Cruise Control.
The IIHS’s top rating in its crashworthiness tests is Good, and the 2019 Kia Sportage grabbed that Good title across all tests, including head restraints and seat, roof strength, side, moderate overlap front, and small overlap front (driver- and passenger-side). You’ll get several safety technologies standard on the Sportage, including Lane Keeping Assist and Auto Emergency Braking.
Minivans have long been about family safety, and the 2019 Kia Sedona continues that tradition with available features like the Surround View Monitor, Park Distance Warning – Forward & Reverse, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. In IIHS testing, the Sedona earned top scores across most tests.
The 2019 Kia Sorento was awarded the highest distinction from the IIHS (Top Safety Pick+) when properly equipped with specific headlights and optional front crash prevention. Among the Sorento’s standard safety technologies are Hill-Start Assist, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, and Electronic Stability Control.
