2018 Kia Sorento Nabs Top Safety Rating Thanks to New Headlights

The 2018 Kia Sorento has nabbed a top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The agency awarded the Kia Sorento the Top Safety Pick Plus rating thanks in part to its new headlights.

In order to earn the Top Safety Pick Plus rating, a vehicle much score ‘good’ ratings in all five crash tests and an ‘advanced’ or ‘superior’ rating in the front crash prevention test. The latest addition to the safety standard is the ‘acceptable’ or ‘good’ rating in headlight tests.

The 2018 Kia Sorento’s safety rating applies to the SX and SX Limited trims that come equipped with the Advanced Technology Package. The innovative headlights earned an ‘acceptable’ rating.

Make no mistake: a top safety rating from the IIHS is not an easy thing to earn. By receiving it, the 2018 Kia Sorento earns itself a spot among some of the safest, and most elite, vehicles in the entire automotive industry.

“Kia’s commitment to building durable, capable vehicles is underscored by Sorento receiving this tremendous safety accolade,” said Orth Hedrick, Kia’s vice president of product planning.

We here at Bob Sight Kia are excited to see the Kia Sorento SUV earning such an impressive safety rating.
