Kia Stinger Receives Top Safety Pick+ Score From IIHS

“No detail was too small to be obsessed over during the Stinger’s development process,” said Michael Cole, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “Stinger was engineered to be the fastest and highest performing vehicle in Kia’s history, undergoing the company’s most intense R&D effort to date, but it also continues Kia’s tradition of offering advanced collision avoidance systems. Earning another TSP+ award is just one more piece of evidence demonstrating our commitment to ‘Give it Everything.’”

To qualify for the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation vehicles must receive qualifying scores on a series of safety tests including driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, head restraint, and headlight ratings. The 2019 Stinger qualifies for the distinction when equipped with the optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection feature and LED headlights.

  • Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Parking Distance Warning
