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.

2020 Kia Telluride SX Features

The three-row SUV segment is packed with models that emphasize comfort, space, and fuel efficiency above anything else. Most of them, though, fall short when it comes to wrapping it all up in a sleek and distinctive design. Thankfully, Kia has livened up the class with the introduction of the 2020 Kia Telluride, a crossover that not only excels in the crucial areas of space and comfort but that also features a unique and head-turning style. Rather than just pulling ahead of strong competitors like the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot, this awarded SUV is ambitious enough to shake up the entry-luxury market. For half the price, you can get the sophistication and elegance typical of models like Audi or Lexus.

If the well-executed look and the relentless performance of the Telluride have caught your attention, the next step is to decide which configuration is more adequate to your needs. Today we are going to focus on the lineup’s range-topping trim and all it has to offer. Keep reading to learn more about the 2020 Kia Telluride SX features.
