As vehicles become available, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety puts them through their battery of tests to determine just how safe they are. The safety ratings that come as a result of these tests are some of the most highly regarded by consumers on the entire market.

This is why we’re so pleased to inform you that eight, yes eight, Kia models have earned either the 2018 Top Safety Pick or, the only thing that’s higher, a 2018 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.
