IIHS Top Safety Pick History for the Kia Sorento Model 

The Kia Sorento has been an IIHS Top Safety Pick for three model years straight now, 2016-present, which means it has been among the most crash-resistant vehicles in its class each of those years. 

This honor is achieved with good, advanced or superior ratings in crashworthiness tests on areas of the vehicle like small overlap front, moderate overlap front, roof strength, and front crash prevention. 

Safety Features of the 2018 Sorento 

While the Sorento’s ability to withstand impact is among the best in its vehicle class, here’s some additional features to keep the drive safe for you and your loved ones:  

  • Standard features like Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control System. 
  • Rear Camera Display, standard. 
  • Available Advanced Smart Cruise Control. 
  • Available Autonomous Emergency Braking. 
  • Available Lane Departure Warning System. 

For these reasons and more the 2018 Sorento provides a real value-filled SUV experience; that and its 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway base fuel efficiency, its ability to go off-road in AWD versions for six trims, and its ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
