It’s already Kia Motors America’s best-selling CUV. Now, the 2017 Kia Sorento is even more desirable, after earning a Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional front-crash prevention.

The Kia Sorento is a popular midsize CUV that comes loaded with standard features, including 17-inch alloy wheels, stain-resistant upholstery, and Bluetooth® audio connectivity. The Sorento is also versatile and is available in five- and seven-passenger configurations.

But what makes the 2017 Sorento a true winner is its excellent safety standards. In addition to its Top Safety Pick Plus rating, the 2017 Sorento also earned “good” crashworthiness ratings and a superior rating for the optional front-crash prevention system.

To qualify for a Top Safety Pick Plus rating, vehicles must earn “good” ratings in each of the five crashworthiness tests – small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side impact, roof strength and head restraints – as well as an “advanced” or “superior” rating for front crash prevention.

While comfortable and exciting features are important aspects of any new car, Kia understands that nothing comes before safety. That’s why the 2017 Sorento is available with a number of advanced safety features. Highlights include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Advanced Smart Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
