What is the Kia Sportage Safety Rating?

The Kia Sportage has earned fantastic safety ratings across the board. From the National Highway Traffic Safety (NHTSA) star-ratings to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash test ratings, you’ll see scores that provide peace of mind and confidence on Fenton streets.

  • NHTSA:
    • Overall Safety Rating: Five Stars
    • Overall Front Rating: Four Stars
    • Overall Side Rating: Five Stars
    • Rollover Rating: Four Stars

    • Side Impact: Good
    • Roof Strength: Good
    • Rear Crash Protection / Head Restraint: Good
    • IIHS Small Overlap Front: Good
    • Moderate Overlap Front: Good

These tests simulate different crash test scenarios, and the IIHS has even awarded the Sorento with the 2018 Top Safety Pick+ award. A large part of that award is the Sorento’s crash prevention features which were rated “Superior” with optional equipment. It also earned the highest “Good” rating possible in headlights. Be sure to compare the safety scores of the Sorento to other leading competitors before you make your ultimate decision.
