Kia Model IIHS Top Safety Picks Historically Optima Sedan and Soul Crossover
Safety is a priority for automobile owners, whether you’re part of a growing family, in a relationship, or a young driver with a first vehicle.
Which is why it’s nice that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) does impact and crash testing on a large portion of the major production models we see on the road today. When one of the vehicles achieves at least good ratings in five crashworthiness tests of the vehicle, or does even better than that and gets a superior rating for front crash prevention, among other factors, then you’ve got one of the most impact-resistant vehicles in its class!
Kia vehicles are among the safest on the road, with five current 2017 model year vehicles given an IIHS Top Safety Pick, including the 2017 Kia Optima sedan, the 2017 Kia Cadenza large sedan, the 2017 Kia Sportage small SUV, the 2017 Kia Sorento midsize SUV and the 2017 Kia Sedona minivan. But which of these models, or which Kia model historically, has strung together the most consecutive years or being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick? We’ve got the information, below!
