Kia is Certainly One of the Safest on the Road

August 12th, 2019 by

Kia automobiles from Sunshine Kia of Miami are some of the safest on the road today, and we have the data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to prove it!

Kia has more vehicles with IIHS Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick Plus than any other manufacturer in the latest series of tests. Kia’s dominance in the IIHS ratings occurred when the 2020 Kia Telluride was given the Top Safety Pick designation with “Good” ratings in all six crashworthiness tests and an “Acceptable” rating for the headlight test. Kia now has five vehicles with Top Safety Pick ratings and seven with Top Safety Pick Plus ratings.

Orth Hedrick, Executive Director Car Planning and Technology for Kia Motors America said, “We constantly strive to build the best quality and safest vehicles possible and being the automaker with the most TSP and TSP+ ratings is ultimately gratifying.”

Qualification for a Top Safety Pick designation requires “Good” ratings in the following tests:

  • driver-side small overlap front impact
  • moderate overlap front impact
  • side impact
  • roof strength and head restraint tests
  • an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test

The vehicle must also receive an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good rating for headlights.
