Another top safety rating for the Kia Sorento
The Kia Sorento has recently been awarded a top safety rating in the US to compliment the five-star EuroNCAP rating it received last year.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Sorento maximum ratings in frontal, side and rear safety tests as well as the rollover impact crash safety test.
The Kia Sorento was one of the first vehicles to receive the EuroNCAP five-star rating after the test was revised early last year and excelled in adult, child and pedestrian safety.
In light of the top European rating, Kia said that the SUV was developed to provide ‘the highest levels of safety’.
Michael Sprague of Kia Motors America was also very pleased, but stated the rating didn’t come as a surprise, saying that Kia demonstrates that ‘buyers can have an affordable CUV without sacrificing protection.
The Kia Sorento, coupled with the company’s unique seven year warranty, is available from as little as £20,830 in the UK.
