2017 Sedona Named a Top Safety Pick+

The 2017 Kia Sedona has been designated as a Top Safety Pick+ by American safety organization the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In earning the institute's highest safety rating, Sedona surpassed more demanding standards implemented this year. In order to qualify for the "plus" designation, vehicles must pass all five crashworthiness assessments with the highest possible score of "good." Furthermore, vehicles must now offer an available forward collision prevention system that earns a rating of "advanced" or "superior."

“Buyers often place safety at the top of their list when shopping for a new minivan,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA. “The IIHS is a highly respected safety authority and we see the 2017 Sedona’s TSP+ rating as validation of Kia’s dedication to its customers and to the continuous efforts to build better and safer vehicles.”

In addition to Sedona's Autonomous Emergency Braking system, the minivan also offers a number of advanced safety and driver assistance features, including Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Departure Warning (LDWS), and Smart Cruise Control (SCC).
