Kia Motors is one automaker that constantly comes out with vehicles that aren’t only stylish but also safe. In 2018, it quickly became one of the safest car brands in America when more than eight vehicles in the Kia Motors lineup received a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Every vehicle to come from Kia Motors since 2018 has also received an award for safety from the IIHS, such as the 2019 Kia Stinger (Top Safety Pick+), the 2020 Kia Soul Receives (Top Safety Pick+) the Kia Telluride (Top Safety Pick +), and the Kia Seltos in Australia, based on Aussie specs, with a 5-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). For the 2020 model year, we have a bit of an echo, because six Kia Motors vehicles just received Top Safety Pick Ratings from the IIHS.

This time around, the 2020 Telluride, Sorento, Sportage, Soul, Stinger and Forte received a 2020 Top Safety Pick rating. Of course, the IIHS has a special way of testing each vehicle to give each a safety rating, and most of the time, a safety award can come down to an option on the vehicle that consumers wouldn’t get standard, or not available in every trim. In the case of these Kia Motors vehicles, that difference is whether or not the vehicle is equipped with front crash prevention and specific headlights. A typical line that most vehicles don’t cross, with only high-end trims getting advanced safety features these days.
