The 2018 Kia Sorento is Named an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus

When the goal on the Hamilton roads is safety, the vehicle you drive makes all the difference. Kia has long been committed to safety, and that hasn't changed. How do we know? The 2018 Kia Sorento has been named a Top Safety Pick Plus, the highest safety rating available from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

It's not surprising, considering that the Sorento comes with six standard airbags, and has a chassis constructed with high strength steel. Plus, advanced safety features like Autonomous Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and blind spot detection work to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place.

So how does a vehicle earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus rating? It goes through five crashworthiness tests including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints, and must earn "good" ratings in each. It also must earn "advanced" or "superior" ratings for front crash prevention, and "acceptable" or "good" ratings for headlights.
