2020 Kia Models Named IIHS Top Safety Picks

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a recognized and independent nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the number of losses – human, vehicular, and environmental – that result from motor vehicle crashes. To this end, the IIHS performs tests to evaluate how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a collision and what technologies can prevent a crash or lessen its severity. The models that perform best in their evaluations qualify for Top Safety Pick, an award that identifies the best vehicle choices for safety within size/body style categories.

At Moritz Kia, we couldn’t be happier to announce that six Kia models have been named IIHS Top Safety Picks this year. The 2020 Kia Soul and the 2020 Kia Forte have earned a spot in the small car category, while the 2020 Kia Stinger hatchback takes the win as a large car. Two models have made it to the midsize SUV category: the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride and the 2020 Kia Sorento. Finally, the 2020 Kia Sportage has won the award as a small SUV.
