Safety is an important factor pretty much everyone considers when looking for a new vehicle. Kia recognizes this, and has made it the company’s goal to produce some of the safety vehicles on the roads today. The newly redesigned 2017 Kia Sportage safety rating and features help to prove just how safe the company is making its vehicles.

The two main crash-testing organizations each gave the 2017 Sportage their highest rating awarded. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the crossover an overall score of five stars. In addition to the NHTSA score, the IIHS gave the Sportage the much-sought-after designation of Top Safety Pick Plus. These are two of the top safety honors a vehicle can earn.
