The 2017 Kia Sportage recently earned a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), one of the top honors in the industry. The Sportage comes with tons of great new features, from driver assist technologies to intelligent engineering. If you want the best in safety, get the new Kia Sportage.
Kia Sportage safety features include the innovative autonomous front crash prevention system, an optional feature that comes with the EX Technology Package. In addition to autonomous braking, this system helps to detect imminent crashes and to activate the brakes if necessary. According to AutoEvolution, this not only reduces injury, but it can also prevent crashes altogether.
“The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is one of the most recognized and respected organizations in the industry when it comes to evaluating vehicle safety,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia. “We are especially proud to have our all-new Sportage earn that TSP+ rating in light of IIHS’s new, more challenging standards, validating the efforts of our engineers and the priority we place on safety.”
Other great safety features include the Lane Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Detection, front and rear parking assist, and more. The body is made with an Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) design, and the body’s rigidity has been improved 39 percent compared to previous model years. There’s nothing safer than the new Sportage.
