The 2018 Kia Soul and Sportage Earn IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus Ratings

Safety can never be undervalued on the Calgary roads, and Kia makes them even safer. Following the 2018 Sorento earning the Top Safety Pick Plus rating, the 2018 Kia Soul and 2018 Kia Sportage aren't going to be left out. That's right, both the Soul and Sportage have also earned the coveted Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

To earn the highest safety rating, the Soul and Sportage were put through five crash tests, including driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints. They had to earn "good" crash test ratings, "advanced" or "superior" front crash prevention ratings, and "acceptable" or "good" headlight ratings.

The Soul and Sportage both offer Autonomous Emergency Braking, which detects if a forward collision is imminent and can apply emergency braking to lessen or avoid the crash. You'll also get to utilize Blind Spot Detection in both vehicles, which will let you know when there's a vehicle next to you that you might not be able to see.
