The 2018 Kia Sorento Earns the Highest Safety Rating From the IIHS

The 2018 Kia Sorento is turning heads in multiple ways. From its sculpted exterior to spacious interior, the Sorento doesn't stop impressing. And here's yet another reason to consider the new Sorento: the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named it a Top Safety Pick Plus. You can be confident that all seven riders will be kept safe on the Calgary roads.

What's the criteria for earning the IIHS' highest available safety rating? A vehicle must earn a "good" rating for five crash tests: small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints. It must also earn an "advanced" or "superior" rating for front crash prevention, and an "acceptable" or "good" rating for headlights.

Between its construction and safety technology, it's no wonder the 2018 Sorento is an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus. With six standard airbags placed within a high strength steel chassis, you'll be well protected in the event of an accident. But the best safety measure is accident prevention, and that's where the blind spot detection system, the Autonomous Emergency Braking system, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert come in.
