2019 IIHS Top Safety Awards Picks Kia Models!

The 2019 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards has passed, and Kia Motors of America is proud to announce that a total of eight different Kia models were included! This makes Kia one of the top three brands on the market, and one that’s racked up many awards! Especially impressive given that the IIHS made their requirements tougher in 2019!

One key vehicle in these awards was the 2019 Kia Forte, which received many awards for safety and security! The new 2019 Kia Forte was released just this last summer and is one of five models to earn a Top Safety Pick Plus award – the highest award the IIHS offers. The new 2019 Kia Forte is equipped with front crash prevention and specific headlights, giving it one of the best safety ratings in the market today!

This number of awards is very impressive! Especially considering, as listed above, the 2019 IIHS awards were much improved and stricter than the previous year. In order to achieve the TSP+ rating this year, the vehicles now require a “Good” rating in many systems, up from an “Acceptable” from before. The IIHS testing systems also raised the qualifications to get awards, such as needing “Good” ratings in many systems and “Advanced” or “Superior” in front crash prevention and more.
